Large Scale Aerobatic Club KZN Event at MMAC

This past Saturday Aviation Central team members from Kwazulu-Natal, Trevor Viljoen and Alan Richert visited the Maritzburg Model Aircraft Club for a Large Scale Aerobatic Club KZN event.
We were treated to a beautiful hot sunny day with clear blue skies and just a slight breeze in the morning, ideal conditions to get in some great flying.

Due to a smaller amount of entries for the event, each pilot flew three rounds.
Some great flying demonstrated by all pilots, with the wind picking up later in the day to provide a greater challenge for the pilots.
It was a fantastic day with some very good flying and a lot of fun was had by everyone!

The results from each class were:


1 Rob Hill 63%
2 Brett Bakke 61.6%
3 Richard Flemming 57.5%
4 Clive Gager 55.7%
5 Rolf Bartels 55.9%


1 Inus de Wet 53.2%


1 Ian Becke 60.8%
2 Brad Rae 57.4%


1 Charl du Rand 62.5%
2 Mark Savage 57.9%

Well done to all who participated and to everyone involved in the organization for the day, for a well run event!
We look forward to the next events, especially the scale day currently scheduled for the 5th December 2020.

Below are some photos from the day.
