So there I was ...

So there I was one afternoon, at the Good Hope Flying Club, DF Malan Airport (as it was then), minding my own business, when this new PPL walks in. “I’ve never spun an aircraft without an instructor,” he says. Well, I’m not an instructor, never been brave enough or clever enough for that, but I’m quite a hotshot PPL – couple of hundred hours, open rating on singles, taildragger rating, twin rating, safety pilot rating. Oh yes, club chairman as well, so I’m sort of responsible too.

TEDDY BUILD : 27 June 2015


Thanks Kevin, Derek and Mike H for your guidance on establishing a status plan for the Teddy Build.
I'm thrilled you enjoyed the Biltong soup. A small token of appreciation for helping me achieved this bit of admin, which is a major relief.
In addition to the Admin, the gusset was also removed from the landing gear as Kevin was not happy with it and this was drawn up to fabricate.
