2014 EAA National Convention East London

Friday, August 8, 2014 - 08:00 to Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 16:00

We finally have got our plans in place for the 2014 EAA National Convention, AGM and Fly-in, following our initial non-starts earlier this year. I am happy to confirm that the Convention will be 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, have offered their kind assistance to handle the organising from their side, and the EAA team will support from National to ensure that our Convention is a resounding success.

The Convention Fly-in is intended for aviation enthusiasts from around the country to come and share in the passion of Sport Aviation, whether you need homebuilding advice, are interested in building an aircraft, or just want to come along and interact with old friends who share the passion for anything and everything to do with aviation. We are scheduled to arrive on Friday 08 August, with the Convention taking place on Saturday 09 August, after which most of us will depart on Sunday 10 August for the homeward bound journey. The EAA AGM is scheduled to be held on the Saturday afternoon at 15h00 in the Wings Park clubhouse. Aircraft judging as well as some technical forums will take place during the day on Saturday. We urge those who will be making a grand entrance in their pristine flying machines to enter them for the aircraft judging. It’s a prestigious judging competition, so let’s make sure that we have lots of entries. The prize-giving and fun evening’s entertainment is planned for Saturday evening at the airfield.

An info pack will be distributed in the next few weeks with all the relevant joining detail, venue and accommodation information. Be sure to come and join us at this idyllic venue this year and share in a week-end of vintage and grassroots aviation at its best. It will be great fun!

Paul Lastrucci EAA of SA National President
