Sharing the Joy of Flight

Unread post by RudiGreyling » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:02 pm

I decided to actively share my passion with others, share the joy of flight and show our scenic valley to them from a different perspective.
When I go for a scenic flight for pleasure and I have an open seat or seats I offer it for free to our community for them to enjoy it too.

Father and 2 daughters, friend and member of our estate.

Oupa Louis, he is 87 years old and excited as a little boy! What a treat! and 2 other estate community members.

Local Family Air Safari

For Inspiration:
Builders, keep pounding those rivets! Weekend Warriors, get out there!


During the March School holidays us family took our RV Zulu 10 on a lekker 12 day air safari through RSA.

Plan was to fly the Vaal river from Parys to Kimberley then the Orange river all the way to Augrabies.
Then head south to the desolate Verneuk Pan, cut east to De Aar then fly the Vanderkloof Dam into Gariep Dam.
Then Cut to the coast and fly the wild coast, stay at Wavecrest. Onto Margate for a couple of days.
Then back home via the Drakensberg right next to the escarpment at Lesotho.
