The Greg Casson Memorial Jet Weekend has come and gone.
For those who attended from the Thursday to Sunday it was a long and hot 4 days. Never the less it was definitely enjoyed by all.
A special thanks to all who attended and to all the helpers who got stuck in and helped wherever they could.
A total of 28 pilots attended with 46 aircraft. We had very few mishaps considering the amount of flights flown in around a 13 hour day envelope.
A huge welcome to the new Jet pilots, Stan Fincham and Craig Robinson, as well as to those future pilots who drove from Pietersburg to come watch and learn as they are very keen to get started in Jets: Johan van der Merwe, Ingo Hiesterman, Marius Thiart and Johan Bornman.
A huge thanks to Brian Smith for his help with the registration of the field as well as organising with the local flying club and for their help in sorting the supper, security, hangar, trailer, fire cart and so forth. Without this help the event would not have been as great as it was
The venue surely lends itself to possibly organising future flying events there with minor things needing attention.
See you guys at our next fly-in event.
