Site Details

  Turnpoints in kml    and as csv    


Flying sites Bedford mountain   and Old Mill Cricket Ground 

The main mountain has a NW and a SW takeoff. Turkey is a bit tricky and requires good spot landing approach.

One gets there via the N10 Bedford Tarkastad dirt road. Check with local pilots first.  The top of the mountain requires a vehicle with good ground clearance.

There is a SE takeoff capability , but it is shallow bramble ending in a cliff with rotor.

For a SE a better takeoff is behind the MCG , bakkie only.


Use the Tarkastad turnoff close to Bedford
