Looking for airfield

Unread post by Gutendog » Thu Nov 25, 2021 10:12 am

Hi guys

Hi all. I am looking for an airfield somewhere in the Western Cape/Karoo where I can operate for roughly 2 weeks. Somewhere secluded/remote with a hanger would be ideal. Any contacts would be greatly appreciated.

Minimum hanger size of 15x7m is perfect.

Thanks

You may need to include a bit more detail than that, such as Time period/Permanently, Type of aircraft, little more specific regarding area, etc.

Would this airfield do?

You don't say, but will you also need accommodation or will you be camping or what?

This is about 110NM due South of Upington.

Thank you all for replies. I have sent DMs

Yes accommodation would be preferable - or at least a town close by with accomodation. Sorry.
