All the strips around town are private. Not that the owners will have a problem(lots of visitors land here quite often), but I think it’s better to arrange beforehand.
Otherwise, depending on what you fly, you can always land on our strip where the Cub and 172 flies out. Also a crop sprayer strip, 850m but a bit sandy. 15km SSW of town

Dis net so oom Leo. Die Pawnee is die Brave se voorloper. Pawnee is nog lap en pyp, 150 gallon hopper met die 235hp - 260hp O-540 waar die Brave die 275 gallon hopper het en tot 400hp kan gaan met die IO-720 8 silinder. Min enjins wat so mooi klink
