The Krugersdorp Flying Club is the operator and licensee of the Jack Taylor Airfield situated 2nm west of Krugersdorp, now known as Mogale City. Elevation is 5500′ and is below the Lanseria TMA which extends upwards from 6500′.
HMS Krugersdorp, as the airfield is affectionately known, is built on top of a hill. Approach and short finals on runway 26 has a cliff of about 200′ and can make for exciting flying.
Being on the West Rand, and a fair distance from the bigger airports of Johannesburg, our skies are quieter making your flying that bit more pleasant – no stacking! We welcome owners of light aircraft to join the club and base their aircraft at this well maintained facility. Club Gear:
Caps: A navy button cap with an embroidered club logo is now available for sale for R70 each.
Badges: Embroidered club badges are available for sale for R50 each.
Shirts: A light blue pilot-type shirt with the club badge embroidered on the pocket is now available for R160 each.

History of the Airfield:
The Jack Taylor Airfield was founded in the early nineteen sixties by Mr Jack Taylor who landed his Piper Tripacer ZS-CEX at Krugersdorp. He was a Krugersdorp resident and businessman and needed to commute from Krugersdorp where there was no airfield at the time. The Flying Club was formed in the late nineteen sixties because of more pilots and aircraft wanting a base at Krugersdorp.
The Club has grown significantly over the years and it now has around 240 Members including Student Members from the 3 Flying Schools. The Club prides itself with the promotion of an environment of friendliness and encourages all Members to participate in the numerous social activities it hosts.
Many different types of aircraft operate from the field and the field itself is sandwiched below the Lanseria TMA. As a result, certain rules and procedures have come into effect over the years. These are to ensure that all Members, their passengers and visiting aircraft can enjoy the safe enjoyment of their hobby or business flying.
Avgas is available at FAKR.
The fuel bay operating hours are:
08:00 – 16:45 Monday to Saturday
08:00 – 15:45 Sunday and Public Holidays.
