To the concern of the SACAA...I applied for a FUA (Flexible use of airspace) till December and was given it.  In January I will re apply for  further test flights when the new RPAS UAV is finished. This will be my last uav before I moving back to Balloons ans rocket flying. Look at my facebook page under siaspretorius for the new uav photo under construction. Look specific at the jet pipe cut outs. I just finished the last wing tip laser cut outs a few minutes ago. Now it is just to glue all together and by then the motor and avionics might be finished. Greetings

Hi RhinoUAV

Did you came right with your antenna stories.

To every one....my new website is active and operational at siaspretorius.wix.com/hansia-aerospace

Go and have a look. Will start very soon to put my photo`s up of my RPAS system. The UAV is progressing slowly but getting there...

Hi everyone,

 

Is anyone in the Gauteng and Limpopo or any other area interested in a UAV "fly-in" where we can share information and expertise and enjoy the company of likeminded people? I have an area available for such an event in the Naboomspruit area with accommodation for 120 persons(so you can bring the wife and kids who can play, fish, cycle, gamedrive etc while you are flying) @ approximately R 100.00 per person per night.

If shown enough interest we can decide on the specific dates over a weekend and I can start the flying field registration process with SAMAA (just to be on the safe side).
