On Wednesday 22nd September 2021, at 9pm BST (2000Z) we will host an IFR flight from King Shaka International in Durban to Johannesburg International, South Africa. There will be no ATC, but there will be lots of conversation, assistance, tips, stories, and laughter en-route.

Although take-off is scheduled for 9pm BST, it may be worth arriving early to setup your aircraft, and/or to help others set-up theirs. Use the streaming functionality in Discord!
