Dear EAA members

Regrettably our 2014 EAA Convention that was to be held from 01 to 04 May 2014 in conjunction with the Aero Club Air Week at Bethlehem has had to be postponed. Unfortunately for the EAA, this is the second time this year that we have had to change course regarding our Convention.

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.

Time to Spare...

Mar

by Eugene Couzyn

The old adage proved to be correct when I visited friends at their Crocodile River Game lodge recently.

I departed Grand Central early Saturday morning 01 March for a weekend in the bush and after a leisurely 1hr 40min flight in my Gazelle, landed at Mjejane Game Reserve on the banks of the Crocodile River near Marloth Park.
