The EAA National Convention 2014 is upon us

Apr
04

The EAA National Convention 2014 is upon us and, after much discussion with our EAA members over the past six months or so, we have had to re locate from the beloved Margate and a slightly different approach has been adopted for this year’s EAA Convention by joining the AeroClub of SA Air week at the Bethlehem Airfield. Bethlehem has always been a favourite as it is centrally located and is the ‘best effort’ location-wise to encourage prospective homebuilt pilots and builders to come and visit, and some may even take up the challenge of building or restoring their own aircraft.

An Air Cam Story

Apr
04

So its Saturday and I am up uncharacteristically early heading off on a grand tour of Johannesburg. As I am dodging potholes down the N14 I am wondering to myself if it is cheaper and safer to fly around Joburg rather than to drive, etolls and all. Maybe an experiment for another time. For now, first stop is Krugersdorp airfield.

Gazelle Story

Mar
20

by Eugene Couzyn

I have no doubt that many EAAers will remember the dramatic arrival of the RAF liveried Gazelle at the Mile High Sun n Fun in Volksrust, 2010. She came barreling down the runway at an indecent speed, climbed at 45 degrees till she came to a halt, where upon she performed a 180 degree torque turn and descended again, to land gently at the eastern end of the runway, where the other helicopters were parked.
