A new General Flying Area comes into effect on 26 August 2010.
Please familiarise yourself with the details.
Study the map and ensure you know exactly where this new airspace is.
The radio frequency when operating in this area will be 124.200MHz.

This is the official chart:
Here is another map to help you visualise the area.
Some known airfields and towns have been added for your info.
My recommendation when flying in that general area, is to have your GPS set on "GOTO" VOR-CT with the distance indicated in Nautical Miles (NM).
Set VOR-CT waypoint on your GPS as:
- S33 58 10 E18 36 18 (if your GPS is using HDD MM SS)
- S33 58.167 E18 36.3 (if your GPS is using HDD MM.mm)
- S33.969 E18.605 (if your GPS is using HDD.dddd)
Basically if you are between the
Kalbaskraal Road (to your West, which runs almost parallel to the N7) and the
R44 (to your East, which runs through Agter-Paarl to Wellington and Gouda),
then you are likely to be inside the FAD69 GFA as follows:
- If you are between 20NM and 30NM from VOR-CT, then you are in the FAD69 (Area A) which stretches from the Ground to 4000 feet altitude.
- If you are between 30NM and 45NM from VOR-CT, then you are in the FAD69 (Area B) which stretches from the Ground to 8000 feet altitude.
In both cases, you should be operating on 124.2MHz
