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 as a result 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 as the case may be.
