ArcelorMittal Saldanha Radio Control Club will be presenting its annual Spring Fly-In at Tiekosklip 21st & 22nd August

The ArcelorMittal Saldanha Radio Control Club will be presenting its annual Spring Fly-In at Tiekosklip Runway near Langebaan on the 21st & 22nd August 2010. The tarred runway is 140m long and 9m wide with at least 10m gravel runoff on each end. The runway surface has just been resurfaced and is in perfect condition. (Jets have flown at Tiekosklip.) The Pit area has been enlarged to accommodate more planes. Safety and control at the runway has been improved.
The Spring Fly-In has specifically been planned for the end of August each year due to the generally good weather and the magnificent display of West Coast Wild flowers this time of the year. This is the ideal venue for all RC enthusiasts. (We also have a winch for the glider pilots.)
Bring your family and friends along.
RC Hobby shops are most welcome to erect stalls, advertise and sell their products. Food and beverages will be sold during the Fly-In. There is ample accommodation, ranging from economical camping to expensive luxury suites which can be arranged in Langebaan area not far from Tiekosklip.
Please note that AMSRCC is SAMAA registered and accordingly only registered pilots will be permitted to fly.
Please contact one of us as soon as possible for more information or if you want to attend the Spring Fly-In.
