Jack Taylor

Jack Taylor can be regarded as the doyen of power flying in the Southern Transvaal. Now in his 70's Mr Taylor has been involved in, promoted and generally sustained, a high level of interest in flying wherever he was present. He founded and still maintains a high level of interest in the Krugersdorp Flying Club, which is flourishing. He has competed in many Aero Club events, but probably prefers to forget an S P Air Race at Vanderbijlpark some years ago, when an oleo collapsed on landing.

The airfield at Krugersdorp is named after Mr Taylor and he is a former member of the Power Flying Committee, which he served with distinction.
