You need to pay Skywings membership or donation to Skywings through site access system in place  . The Renewal date runs from the 1 November 2015 – 1 November 2016 . So those that need to update there memberships can pay Deon Borrett (for now until we get our Secretary back from project ) and monies are used to pay for site upgrades and maintenance . Please guys don’t fly these sites without paying as we paying thousands of rand a year to keep them open . We also raising funds to sort out Hartenbos and Dana Bay sites with the Municipality . Every Pilot must pay R100-00 we not negotiation with groups for better rates quite frankly its very cheap and we need the funds to develop other sites .

 

We have promise of donations to the club by various donors and some have been super generous and we thank them for there good work .

 

We are looking to remove some lamps at beach hotel and replace with low and safer option lighting . We also moving the benches and the dustbin to increase safety . R1500-00(estimates)

Kleinkrantz Car Park we need to cut grass every three months and also put in measures to prevent erosion on tracks .Top soil and grass needed .R 3500-00 (estimates)

Brenton clearing vegetation that grows yearly.

Goose Valley road totally overgrown . ( estimate is big number )

Uplands the guys over that site are doing good work we need to offer some compensation or help them improve that site .

New sites we have established a new northerly site near Knysna thanks to Danie and the gang .

Mossel bay sites approval by Municipality with the process and adverts costing running into the R 5000-00 mark

Brenton on Sea R 6000-00 per year rental from Investec .

Serpentine maintenance and grass clearing around R 4000- R6000-00 depends on how much clearing needs to be done yearly as we have lots of young pines growing riot up the hill.

 

In general good things are happening to our area and we hope all pilots can enjoy and respect the work that is done for the benefit of all free flying pilots . We would like to invite all pilots to Flyers Lodge for a social meeting and bring and braai and informal discussion on how to improve the flying sites .November 18th 2015 at 18h00 Kleinkrantz Flyers Lodge.
