Klink goed Willie!

Lengte van die baan? Is die baanoppervlak gras of gruis? Rigting van die baan?

Hoe ver padlangs na Clarens?

Groete

Die aanloopbaan is 1400m lank,30m wyd en 5740m hoog. Die oppervlakte is harde grond,ons wil eers die reenseisoen deurgaan voor ons gras plant,die rwy is 02 en 22 en is 12 km vanaf Clarens na Bethlehem regs langs die teerpad.Ons is in die proses om die baan te registreer,vir enige navrae kontak Willie Uys 083 272 3168.

Last weekend we tried the new airfield near Clarens.
Willie and his wife took excellent care of us.
The runway was well prepared and in excellent condition (just watch out for the trees on final).

On arrival we were treated to a great breakfast after which Willie took us to Clarens.

Willie and his wife really made our weekend special.
Thanks for everything.

Markus
