Aviators Paradise

Good day fellow aviators and avcomers.
For those who do not know, Aviators Paradise is situated adjacent to the R512, just south of Brits.
FAAP. Runway 03/21. 850m, asphalt.
Elevation: 3800ft
Joining: 5300ft
Please be on the lookout for hang-gliders and para-gliders. They are usually to the east of the field,
But as we all know, the wind is a factor.
There is avgas available. Should you require please phone Elliott. 0843181770. He is in charge for now. We are awaiting CAA inspection for a flight school. Once that is up and running, they will be doing the avgas.
Mogas is about a kilometre up the road, but we will be able to assist here as well. Please let us know ahead of time.
We have a small restaurant that does amazing things. All made in house. Come try our homemade burgers. There is good food for the kiddies too.
There is a comfortable lounge area with a fire place and a safe area for the children to burn off energy.
For flying in, and spending a night or more, we will try our best to arrange hangerage. There are a couple of beautiful en-suit rooms. The finer details and contact number for the accommodation will be finalised in the week.
If you wish to fly in and explore the area, http://www.letsridemotorcycles.co.za. Fanie will get you moving.
The Gauteng hang-gliding club also operates from the airfield. They offer tandem flights. Micro lights are used to tow the hang-gliders up. For further details contact Shawn. 0825381512.
Should any other information be required, please contact Sandy, 0760266473.

There are a few interesting developments. We will be updating as soon as the licenses are in hand.
I will post as soon as I have conformation. Only then will the "hire and Fly" be discussed. for those that are interested, there will be a buy and braai at the airfield in Sep 4th. You are welcome to fly, drive, or walk in. The B & B is yet to be finalised.
