Jack Taylor can be regarded as the doyen of power flying in the Southern Transvaal. Now in his 70’s Mr Taylor has been involved in, promoted and generally sustained, a high level of interest in flying wherever he was present. He founded and still maintains a high level of interest in the Krugersdorp Flying Club, which is flourishing. He has competed in many Aero Club events, but probably prefers to forget an S P Air Race at Vanderbijlpark some years ago, when an oleo collapsed on landing.
The airfield at Krugersdorp is named after Mr Taylor and he is a former member of the Power Flying Committee, which he served with distinction.
