I started flying in 2003 and did my WCM license with Fred. From there I flew a trike for 8 years before doing my gyro licence and enjoying our gyro for another 3 years or so.
Now at the start of 2014 some 11 years and a bit later I am back with Fred doing a conversion to LSA on a Sport Cruiser.

Why did I write this? Not to tell you how long I have been flying or how many thousands of hours I have done, but to tell you that after many years of flying and gaining experience I still rate Fred Blokland as a brilliant instructor!
Since starting the conversion I have learnt something new every day and stood amazed at his flying ability!

So if you want to start flying WCM or LSA or simply need to do a conversion in the Gauteng area Fred is the guy to phone! (^^) (^^) (^^)
