kzn pattern association


Over the last few years 2009/2010 there has been a significant increase in formalised pattern flying activities in KZN. This resurgence has mainly been due to the efforts and organisation of  well known RC pilot, Neil Allen of Pietermaritzburg.


In July 2010 (after an absence of  some seventeen years) a most successful provincial championship was held. Following on from the success of this event the Model Aerobatic Association of SA (MAASA) awarded the hosting and organisation for the 2011 Nationals to the KZN Pattern Association.


Until recently, the KZN pattern flying fraternity has been operating on an informal basis however, on 30 January 2011, the inaugural AGM of the KZN Pattern Association was held and, amongst other things, a constitution was accepted and a committee elected.


The association holds a pattern flying competition approximately every six weeks at various local club fields.


If anyone wishes to become involved in pattern flying they should contact the association chairman, Neil Allen on phone 073 231 4141 or e-mail neilga@mweb.co.za
