Wolf's Fang Runway

The Wolf’s Fang runway is sited on glacial blue ice which, when properly treated, is entirely suitable for business jets.

The 3,000m x 60m runway is maintained and operated by an experienced ground crew that attends to the monitoring of weather, ground-to-air communication, and runway grooming.

Weather forecasting and observation services are tailored to support planned flying operations and a daily briefing service is available for pilots departing Cape Town.

For the first time ever, you can now safely bring your personal aircraft to the last continent on earth.
