On November 15, 1919, a special edition of “The Star” was flown from Baragwanath to Durban by Major Alister Miller in a World War I Avro 504 biplane. Shortly afterwards Baragwanath became home to the first ever aerial transportation company in South Africa.

The Johannesburg Light Plane Club (JLPC) was formed in 1927, making it one of the oldest active flying clubs in the world.
