Dust Off Your Gliders - We’re Going Soaring!

Are interested in social gliding and slope soaring?
Are you keen to try out for a spot in a world champs model gliding team?

Yes? Then read on....

Social Gliding and Slope Soaring -  Clubs and registered flying sites started making applications for permits to fly as of 3 July 2020. Many permits have been issued already and happy pilots started flying at fields and slopes all around the country from this past weekend. If your club or field doesn't have their permit to fly yet, they should have it very soon. And if you need to find a club near you, please get in touch.

Competitive Gliding - After our COVID-19 imposed break, the Model Gliding Association of South Africa (MGASA) will be resuming competitive league events again soon. Although things are still in progress to make our competitive events possible, we expect to have events starting in the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for our updated event listing.

Team Selections - 2020 is a team selection year for the F3K (hand launch) and F5J (electric thermal duration) competitive glider classes. We have plans to resume those team selection and team trials processes as soon as we can. If you are keen to try out for a place in one of our teams to compete at the upcoming world championships, make sure you are on our WhatsApp events group (below) so that you don’t miss anything. And if you haven’t let us know your intention to compete, as yet, please drop us an email or message ASAP so that we know you are keen.

NATS 2020 is now NATS 2021 - Sadly we had to cancel our 2020 NATS which was planned for April 2020 at Karkloof in KZN. The good news is that we will give it another try next year - same time, same place. Our new (provisional) dates are Sat 24, Sun 25, Mon 26 th April 2021.

I look forward to seeing you on the gliding field or slope, very soon. Best wishes, Brett.
