Some fine tuning and a couple more things to finish off then off to the field to fit the wings and some serious ground runs.

Thanks Craig. No not in the air yet. Still not legal. Must confess, I have been dragging my heels on that one. must get the paperwork through. Will definitely get on to that this week. One or two other things to sort out. As hard as I tried, I still find one or two bolts short.
You did offer when you were here, that you could take my paperwork in to Raasa. Does that offer still stand? I don't want you to make a special trip though.
Regards,
Vernon.

Hi Vernon,

If I am in Joies, I will gladly take them in for you... you can postnet them up, and I will take them in... My only problem at the moment is I am running back and forward to swaziland, so am out of town for weeks at a time... drop me a mail when you are ready with them, and we can work out the logistics...

Chat soon

Believe it or not. I am still not flying my Challi. CAA have mislaid the file on ZU-DUC. So I am not able to register the plane into my name. RIDICULOUS!!! I am now very pissed off. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Believe it or not. I have finally got my Challi registered. Now the tedious job of getting the new log book. The previous owner says there was never a logbook. :roll: :roll:
