Swellendam Airshow


Airshow flyer email final

Gates open at 8.00 am

Air show – 10 am – 4.00 pm

The year’s first and the Cape’s largest air show will be hosted at the Swellendam air field on 5 March 2011. The air in the Overberg area will be alive with dozens of aircraft and aerobatic displays, including the Silver Falcons, the crack SA Air Force display team, and several other aircraft and helicopters.

About thirty aircraft will participate in the air show on 5 March (including model aircraft, classic aircraft, helicopters, an aerobatic glider display,  and a jet trainer), including a static display. The SA Air Force will lend its Impala simulator to us for the day, and the SAAF Museum will also take part in the day’s events.

There will be lots of entertainment for children, with participation by the SAAF’s Siyandiza Aviation Awareness Programme and the Sakhikamfa Foundation (www.sakhikamfa.org), who plays a leading role in introducing aviation to the youth. Special competitions for children are also planned.

Very attractive packages are offered to visitors in a tented camp at the airfield for the duration of the weekend, with accommodation available in guest houses in and about Swellendam for visitors who prefer their surroundings somewhat more luxurious. I attach a pamphlet and some more information about accommodation hereto.

Visitors will also be offered food and beverages to their heart’s delight, with craft markets, a pub, live music and the like to entertain them.
