The Krugersdorp Flying Club is the Airport Authority (Operator) and Licensee of the Jack Taylor Airfield situated 2nm west of Krugersdorp, now known as Mogale City. Elevation is 5500' and is below the Lanseria TMA which extends upwards from 6500'.
HMS Krugersdorp, as the Airfield is affectionately known, is built on top of a hill . Approach and short finals on runway 26 has a cliff of about 200' and can make for exciting flying.
Being on the West Rand, and a fair distance from the bigger airports of Johannesburg, our skies are quieter making your flying that bit more pleasant - no stacking! We welcome owners of light aircraft to join the Club and base their aircraft at this well maintained facility.
The Airfield boasts 3 flying schools,3 AMO's, aircraft manufacturers, hangarage, Avgas, and a Clubhouse. The 26 South Restaurant is located in the Clubhouse. The Club holds monthly meetings of Member on the second Tuesday of every month. Featuring a spectacular view from the Clubhouse, one looks over the valley West of Zwartkops and takes in the Magaliesburg mountain range on the horizon. Sunsets and sundowners are enjoyed by our Members and their guests at this popular watering hole. Lanseria and the Magaliesburg general flying area are a quick 6 minute hop from take off!
Aviation events include the upcoming annual Spot Landing Competition and Airfield Festival on 13 July 2019, as well as the annual Sheila Taylor Navigational Skills Rally. Members arrange regular flying days and are actively involved in all aspects of aviation including building and restoration projects.
Attractions include the neighhbouring Mogale City Nature Reserve, the nearby world famous Sterkfontein Caves, Rhino & Lion Park and the Cradle of Humankind. The metropolis of Johannesburg is within easy reach by car.
