Wagtail’s facilities are on a farm outside of Sasolburg, where most of the training and lectures will take place. Occasionally the Parys airfield and runway will be used. The base runway is 1400 meters long with smooth grass and gravel. The area around the airfield is wide open maize fields for as far as the eye can see. The General flying area can take you to the Vaal river, Barrage, Vaal dam and the Vredefort dome complex. All these natural attractions are all within 10 – 30 minutes flight time from Wagtail.
Other facilities at the Wagtail base consist of a 700m3 hangar and an adjacent building which accommodates the lecture facilities. Self-catering chalets are currently being build for students to use and will be finished by End January 2019.
