IMPORTANT NOTICE TO SAGPA MEMBERS
The SAGPA team is in the process of engaging with CAA on the renewal of the SAGPA Part 149 ARO. Once this Audit & Approval process has been successfully completed and the new ARO certificate issued and received back from CAA, will it be updated to the website.
Whilst the SAGPA team is getting the SAGPA ARO status back to current, the MISASA & SAGPA Exco considered several options, and ultimately the proposal to implement a Memorandum of Agreement between the two organizations was accepted. This agreement came into effect on 1st March 2022. Simply stated, ALL paid-up members of SAGPA remain members of SAGPA but with the only difference, be able to legally operate under the valid MISASA ARO and its MOP. Chairman Weidie Vorster & Vice Chairman George Coetzee have been co-opted onto the MISASA Management Team to manage the Gyro Portfolio. The SAGPA Committee is still to perform their normal day-to-day duties in terms of their elected positions and constitution.
It is to be noted by all members of SAGPA that during this transitional period, SAGPA members are to comply with the terms of the MISASA ARO MOP and request that you avail yourself of the content of the MISASA ARO 007 MOP ... More information will be sent out to PAID-UP members via Mailchimp in due course.

SAGPA North meet South 2021
Held at the Gariep Dam 29th April 2021 to 2nd May 2021
Just north of the town of Gariep, in the middle of a wide grassy valley, lies one of the best small airfields in the country. Once handling busy traffic during the construction of the dam, Gariep Dam Airfield has two long and wide tarmac runways, taxiways and an apron. With a game reserve on one boundary and the dam only a few kilometres to the east, wild life is plentiful nearby. A high ridge several kilometres away to the north forms a long silhouette and shelter against the northerly winds. To the west, the tree-lined Orange River slowly winds its way and long journey to the Atlantic.
