For the first time in 27 years, the sky’s above George will be filled with the sound of high performance aircraft and display teams from around the country. The 16th of July 2022 has been set aside to host this spectacular event.
We welcome Ivan van der Schaar and the loud but graceful Boeing Stearman.
The Boeing Stearman is a Second World War trainer and this specific aircraft served at Evon Air force Base Florida from 1941-1945. Her role was to train pilots for active combat.
The Stearman is powered by a 450hp Pratt & Whitney radial engine. Cruise speed is 175 km/h
The beautiful Aero l-39, a sleek jet with an amazing smoke system fitted. Definitely not some thing to be missed.
The Augusta A-109 LUH, the light helicopter that replaced the well known Allouette III in service with the SAAF. The Augusta is based around the country and assists with police actions, forward air control Search and Rescue and for the training of our world class pilots
