Port Elizabeth is blessed with wind all year round. The problem is that there are not that many suitable sites that one can utilize with the prevailing winds.
Lady Slipper is one of our best local sites and is approximately 1900ft above sea level. It can be flown on both our prevailing South Westerly and North Easterly winds.
After many meetings with Nature Conservation and our local telecommunications company, PEMAC finally obtained permission to use the site again after a two year shutdown. This was largely due to the efforts of Vic Hoxley and his committee. We do have to notify the authorities each time we wish to utilize the site, but it is worth the effort!
