Courses run at Koppies Dam Nature Reserve in the northern Free State, an hours drive south of Johannesburg on the N1. If you are not from the area, airport pick-up and transport can be arranged. If you need accommodation before or after the course in Jhb, this can also be arranged.
Koppies Dam usually has light winds, and has perfect launch possibilities for all wind directions, with trimmed short grass all along the shore for rigging, launch and landings back at the launch site, it is the perfect SIV & Acro site.
Accommodation is camping and self catering chalets at Ndumduma just outside the reserve. There is a restaurant and Bar with a giant (cinema sized) screen for projecting the days flying for video reviews of everyone’s flights. Dinner is usually a barbeque after flight review is done.
