Some nice video footage of the activity at Microland on Saturday taken by Earl Oosthuizen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnl0xm5 ... ture=share

Nice to have the Petit boys around and attempting the Nav with me... pity the conditions to the North were not favourable though.

Route will remain the same for next month!

Hope you all had a great braai, apologies that I could not stay for this one. (^^)

I'll catch you around. (!!)

Seeing as though I was "off duty" this year for the easter egg hunt....I thought Easter should be spent in the sky instead!

Beautiful conditions in the dawn skies around Microland....Kitty Hawk deserted but looking great after all the rains. Had some low level fun in the big fields to the North of the tower and the cosmos is in full bloom wherever you go. (^^)

Nice pics Alan.

Was a bit exhausted this morning after setting up our new Penta caravan for a trip down to .....NO not Kruger....Cape Vidal this time, want to get to the sea for a change.

The Cosmos to the South of Delmas looks quite good this year. Will be flying that way during the week some time.

Yes, and congrats Nic on the topless Aquila, and on your licence renewal. Now you just have to get her into the sky again. By the way, D has managed to fit all those Tupperware containers she bought at plastic land into the caravan. Now there is no space for food. :lol: :lol:

Morning Guys.
When is the best time for me to come around to your airfield so that I may demonstrate my products to you?
I am sure some of you have seen what I have. But for those of you that haven't I want to create a look, feel and test opertunity. I will bring with me; Helmets, flight suits and my intercom. For more info look on my posts under aircraft accessories.

Hi Gerrit,

You jumped the gun Sir....I was just this morning asking the chaps on the Facebook group if they would be interested in having you at one of our club braai days to see your products. (!!)

The braai day is the best time to do this as we normally have a good attendance... (!!)
I have already invited our good friends Alpha and Tailspin round for a similar exercise... If you could keep May 21st or June 18th open I will let you know which is available after I've finalised things with them.

I look forward to seeing what you have, I think its great to have some new names and products entering our sport. (!!)

You are welcome to join our Facebook page as well... "Tailwinds@Microland" you can share your products there too as we encourage our suppliers to do so. (!!)
