Welcome to South Africa Fly-in


After the success of the events in South America in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bogotá, we continue to drive traffic during this week’s ATC stopover. We invite the community to simulate traffic at one of the most intense and tallest airports in Africa, it will be O. R. Oliver Tambo International Airport (FAOR), located in Johannesburg, capital of South Africa. The goal is to get as close to reality as possible, so pay attention to the specific recommendations and restrictions below and others that will be sent to all participants.

How will it be?

This is an event in Fly-in mode (Pilots take off from different airports at the ideal time to reach Johannesburg at the same time approximately). Interested pilots must analyze the flight table and choose their route. After that, the time of the event (12:00 UTC 22/03/2020) must be taken into account. As a result, heavy traffic will be formed at the arrival of O. R. Oliver Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg (FAOR).


Aviation lovers on Infinite Flight know that the O. R. Oliver Tambo International Airport (FAOR) is on the ATC agenda on the day of the event, after all the aerodrome is listed as one of the main airports on the continent. As a result, the procedures performed both at UNICOM or under the assistance of ATC must be respected as well as in reality, it is absolutely necessary that pilots make use of the STAR Chart corresponding to their route for assistance on the runway in use, see below:

The headboard of the runways used for landings will be determined by the current METAR/ATIS at the time of the event.

Further recommendations will be sent through the PM Briefing Letter for each participating pilot.
