About Us

Uitenhage Aero Club

Redhill Aviation Club and the Algoa Microlight Aviation Club (AMAC) were the forerunners to the Uitenhage Aero Club. These clubs have roots dating back to late nineteen sixties.

In 2008, the South African regulations governing micro flight were changed and the sport became part of a larger discipline – that of the National Pilot rating. ThisĀ  rating of licence encompasses Light Sport Aviation (aircraft lighter than 650kg), Touring Motor Gliders, Conventionally Controlled Microlights and Weight Shift catergories.

Also part of the change was stimulated by changing demographics of users based at the Uitenhage Aerodrome, with some heavier tin flyers relocating from Port Elizabeth to FAUH.

The Uitenhage Aero Club officially came into being on 23 June 2011 at a Special general meeting of AMAC, giving rise to the change in name and the core objective to serve all forms of aviation.
