MISASA Wings Wheels and Water at Kitty Hawk 2015
By Willie Bodenstein
The first major event of the year and now in its second year at Kitty Hawk the MISASA (Microlight & Light Sport Aeroplane Association of South Africa) Fly-in has become one of the events that is not to be missed.
As was to be expected the early arrivals were mostly trikes. A gaggle of more than ten Quick GT 450's was amongst a large contingent to arrive.
Air traffic control was provided by ATNS's special events section that consists of a group of volunteers that offer their service for free and they did a sterling job ensuring a incident free event. On the ground MISASA members toiled in the hot sun and directed visitors to their allocated parking areas. By days end the number of visiting aircraft was well up from last year with an estimated 200 aircraft having visited.
MISASA's fly-in has been so successful that it is now in danger of outgrowing Kitty Hawk. No doubt though that the dedicated and resourceful committee will not rest on their laurels but will next year organise an even better and bigger event.
