Airfields with service stations nearby for MOGAS

Unread post by CC » Sun May 11, 2008 1:22 pm

Hi all

I am building a database of airstrips, airfield's and airports all over Southern Africa (SA,Namibia, Botswana, Zim, Zambia, Malawi, Moz etc...) that have service stations (garages) very close by, preferably walking distance to fill up with MOGAS. Also including any possibility of landing a light aircraft right in front or behind on private roads/ fields etc and taxiing up to the pumps!

As much help would be appreciated. Anyone that has seen anything that may be suitable to please post details.

Also the name of the service station is of great importance so that I can contact them for possible transport arrangements to and from the Airplane.

Aerial photo's and GPS co-ords will also help.

Once I have compiled and verified a reasonable list I intend to post the details on my website as well as AVcom and the African Bush Pilots email group. The list will then also be frequently updated as new info comes in.

Cheers
CC

Hi CC

Only one that I am aware of in the area I fly, Kwa Zulu North Coast (Empangeni) is at Hluhluwe, about 200 m, the one at Groutville near Stanger is closed.

Thanks guys keep them coming.

I'm already familiar with some and have a lot myself that I will still post.

A lot of aircraft owners are changing to Mogas so I think this will be very valuable.

Please supply as much info as possible i.e. elevation for density alt etc..

Cheers

Barberton Airfield

Barberton - I am going to instal a mogas pump here in very near future. However in the meantime if anyone needs mogas just contact me in advance. I also usually keep 200L and 20l cans of mogas for own use. Or cover my fuel costs to take you into town to fill up cans.

Sossusvlei Lodge (FYSU) in Namibia has a petrol station about 500m down the road...have heard that the Namib Naukluft Lodge just to the north is right next to a gas station, never been there though.
And of course you know about Ghanzi in Botswana...

Ganzi in Botswana - when flying from Windhoek to Maun. Shell service station across the road. Ganzi is an airport of entry with immigration and customs but no avgas. Airport officials will take you to get fuel.

Maun - Maun has plenty avgas but you can walk straight out of the terminal building and your in town! so service stations very close.

Grunaü in Namibia - On the road between Keetmanshoop and Karasburg. Service station with landing area behind the building or use the road. hav'nt been there for a while so maybe someone can updat this.?

Keetmanshoop don’t seem to have Avgas anymore but town is close by so no problem.

The Numbi Airstrip is behind the Engen in Hazyview. Also within walking distance of shops, restaurants, accommodation and friendly people! We have a farm just up the valley and trust me- it's beautiful there. I've seen some twins operating out of there and a lot of microlights.

If you are landing at the Ultracity try to do it fairly early in the morning as you tend to become a bit of a traffic stopper with everyone wanting to have a look. Have had a few grumbles from the traffic ossifers for causing disruptions to the traffic.

Dragon Peaks in the Berg has Mogas on site, details are on Easyplan and although the detail says no fuel, they mean AVGAS.

Below is a pic of Estcourt Ultra City with aerie traffic, Andrew is also down there !
