2014 National Convention

EAA's picture

The 2014 National Convention was held at the picturesque Wings Park Airfield near East London over the weekend of 09 August 2014. Chapter 1262, under guidance of Chapter Chairman Mike Wright, the management team at Wings Park and the Border Aviation Club, offered their kind assistance to handle the organising from their side, and the EAA team supported from National ensured that the Convention was a resounding success.

Thanks to all who joined us there.

What an extended weekend, thanks to the rain on the Sunday. We all had a ball, meeting new friends, enjoying the aircraft fraternity, the flying, the party around the fire in the evenings and the general aviation buzz.

- Gerald Maddams

It may have seemed a long way to drive, and the truck and taxi drivers along the route were determined to reinforce that fact, but a drive of twice that distance would have been worth it.

Laid Back

The East London EAA members may be living in a laid-back part of SA, but they certainly are very capable of putting together an enjoyable Convention.
I have attended all of them and this year's one was again well organised with the boys living up to their reputation. Thank you all!
The AGM attendance was excellent and very lively at times. Thanks Paul for all the hard work.
This year, I decided to hang up my boots as aircraft judge after two and a half decades of it. Time for a change...

ZS-CAT's First Convention

Sep
08

The EAA Convention was moved to 08 August, at Wings Park, East London. That is a long flight for ZS-CAT, but I was excited and looking forward to the trip. The Wings Park team had prepared a detailed information pack with pictures of the airfield layout and approach instructions, along with details of camping facilities, shuttle services, meals, functions, etc. This was a really well organised event!
