Quality Control

While we take care to ensure that the published information is correct and unambiguous, readers are reminded that the SAHPA Site Guide is not a substitute for a detailed site briefing from an instructor or experienced local pilot. Pilots are still required to use their discretion and common sense.

Nevertheless, each page is submitted to the responsible Safety Officer, for comments and corrections. Each club remains responsible for the grading, site rules and safety plans.
