flying to Hoedspruit Civil

Postby Turbo » Wed Dec 25, 2013 10:26 pm

hi all,

Plan as follows:-

02/01/2014 -- FASI to FAWI to FAMB to FALL to FAHT
We departing at 05H50AM and will stop over at FALL (lydenburg) but pass over all the previous airfields unless we have to stop for something.

Departing FAHT for FASI again on the 04/01/2014 around 12 in the afternoon - route back will be through the Olifants river gorge then to FAMB to FAWI to FASI.

FRQ to be used will be 125.4 until just before each airfield, and then finally a changeover to 124.8 just before Lydenburg and remain on 124.8 until just before Hoedspruit MIL CTR to which we change to 126.4 and obtain clearance for Hoedspruit Civil, and then back to 124.8 for Civil and landing.

if you see anything incorrect with these frequencies please let me know ...

Cheers

I would alternate to 124.8 about 10 miles before Witbank and once out the circuit resume on 124.8.

I se the ISAW cam outside on the plane and control it with the Ipad while flying, but mostly take video --- too large for posting anywhere.

will edit come this time round and put it up on youtube.

Arrived safely in Hoedspruit - what a smooth flight went well, 2.5 hours with a stop in Lydenburg -- and the scenery is unbelievable!!

This seriously is a must for all pilots!! -- Olifants river gorge is absolute beauty!!

I presume I am bit late in making a comment on this post. You stay on 126.4 till on ground at civil and call on 126.4 before you takeoff.
