SAPFA Bosberaad - February 2010

SAPFA BosberaadSAPFA BosberaadThe 2010 Annual SAPFA "Bosberaad" was held from 5 - 7 February. It was hosted by Ron Stirk on his game farm, Paddafontein, about 10 nm South of Thabazimbi (as the crow flies). The SAPFA committee was joined at various stages by Kevin Storie, the recently appointed General Manager of the Aero Club of South Africa, Koos Marais (Chairman of AOPA-SA), Neville Bohm (Chairman of EAA) supported by Karl Jensen and two EAA committee members.

This is the first year that SAPFA have extended the invitation to EAA, AOPA and Aeroclub to join their annual planning meeting. It has been recognized that the combining of forces across the various representative bodies has become a necessary path to follow. While each of the respective organisations have their unique focus area it was agreed that they would work together on issues of common interest to prevent duplication of effort and ensure effective representation for General Aviation. A small sub-committee with one person from EAA, AOPA and SAPFA was formed with the view of formulating an action plan. It was also agreed that a representative from CAASA would be invited to attend.
