Lanseria International Airport
Lanseria is the second largest airport in the Gauteng province. It has traditionally catered for private, corporate and charter operations but it has since transformed its business model to operate as a secondary base for scheduled airlines including the likes of Kulula and Mango.
Lancair Super ESX
During Aero Club’s Air Week in Parys over the long weekend of 3 to 5 May, Leon Joubert arrived in his magnificent Lancair Super ESX. I have been following the build project of this particular aircraft for some years and now was the time to conduct the air-to-air sortie from my Cessna 182 with Charlie Marais at the controls.
AERO Friedrichshafen 2015 – best ever!
After spending four days at AERO in Friedrichshafen in mid-April of this year, I can say that without doubt this European aviation exhibition is becoming more important each year; with significantly more exhibitors.
In addition, the show attracted interest from many countries in the world, including the USA and Canada.
I have to compliment the organisation, especially from a media perspective where everything that was planned worked exceptionally well. There can be no doubt that collectively the aviation media play a very important role in bringing aviation to the public’s attention in a positive way so as to successfully promote General Aviation to people of all ages.
