What and when can you fly with us
We currently have control line to club aerobatics. The field has mown grass runways (big enough for IMAC planes) and a concrete pad in the pits. We have a windsock. Frequency control is via the 'peg on' system and there is a board attached to the windsock pole. There is a concrete table for transmitter impound. Frequency pegs and impound applies to all transmitters, including 2.4GHz of all kinds. While visitors are welcome, the demarcated pit area is restricted to pilots only, unless you are invited by a pilot to enter the area.
We fly regularly on Saturday and Sunday mornings from about 8:30AM (earlier in summer). Occasionally there will be ad hoc flying in the afternoon, especially if it was windy in the morning. There are toilet facilities at a nearby B&B for emergencies.
Since the flying site is on an active airfield a listening watch on the local aircraft frequency (123.5Mhz) is required.
Midas in Port Alfred, Brian Hobbies in Port Elizabeth, and a store or 2 in East London. And don't forget online supplies 'in the country', support local whenever possible
