NON AIRPORT USERS BEWARE!


The airport environment is completely out of bounds to everyone at AfrikaBurn (yes, even you!). Unless you are working or volunteering for the airspace crew and have been properly trained or you are being escorted by a qualified pilot. Access is then only through our terminal building. The area will be fenced off - please do not climb through the safety barrier fence. Aircraft are extremely dangerous - collision with a moving aircraft or spinning propeller will result in death.

driving your car to the airstrip to pick up passengers is not permitted.

Any vehicle approaching the airstrip that is not authorised to drive on site will be turned away.
