During the recent break in between the rains Gauteng has been having during the last couple of days, The South African Power Flying Association hosted a fun rally at Rand Airport just to the south of Johannesburg. The event saw a total of 30 participants including navigators taking part.

 

Rally Navigation Flying is a sport with a crew of two, a pilot and navigator.The objective is to fly a pre-determined course which is accurate to the second over turning points and recognize ground features from provided photographs and maps that are in a envelope the pilot receives on arrival to the event. This gives pilots great practice for navigational skills they can use.

Aircraft that took part varied from a little sports star LSA to a Cessna C172.Shane Britz and Karen Stroud took first place in the Jabiru ZU-FEP.Below show the results of all the competitors!
