SKYRIDERS Marathon (3000nm) fly-away 8 - 20 May 2018

Postby Mervyn Reynolds » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:06 am

Hi all

A group of us from Microland are planning a 3000nm marathon fly-away in May next year as follows:
Departing Microland and joining the Vaal at Parys, following on along the Orange River to Alexanderbay. Then along the Atlantic coastline around the Cape to Margate via the Indian coastline and to return to Microland via Ladysmith.

The flight log file is too large to attach to this forum and those interested are welcome to mail your request for the details to me on mervyn@hmsinternational.co.za

ALL are welcome!!

Regards
Mervfasa

It is going to be HUGE fun!! Allow for at least 2 weeks of flying vhpy vhpy .
Route has been amended so that we fly all the way up to cosi bay and then back home. West coast to east coast and border to border as Raf said.
Come on once in a life time event. (^^)
