Thank you Colin for your contributions, despite some of the whinging on Avcom, I believe you made a huge difference at CAA and I applaud you for that.

All the best back at the airline

A standing applause for Colin Jordaan!!! I would put hundreds of clapping hands here, but i am still in the bush with my cell phone. You took disaster that mamba left you and made it a better place for all. The best of luck with the busses, you will be missed..........

Colin, you are the best thing that has happened to CAA in a hell of a long time - probably since Jock Germishuis (about 45 years).

You will be sorely missed, and I have to confess to being more than a little worried about the future without you at the helm. Don't go too far away :!:

All the very best for your future with SAA.

Capt. Jordaan, I salute a gentleman! =D>

Thanks for a very tough and often thankless job.

Now come and buy a nice NTCA and have some fun when not driving the heavy iron

Thank you Colin for the outstanding job you did as Civil Aviation Commissioner.

You have set an example at the CAA which will be hard to follow and you have left the organisation in great shape.

Best of luck back at SAA.

Kind Regards,

Colin, thank you very much for your effort and leadership during the last 3 yrs. One thing that I will remember was your visit to FASH when you gave us a glimpse of your plans for the CAA when you started out in this job. I appreciated the sense of direction and purpose in getting accident reports improved and the accident rate down. IMHO: Thank you for turning the CAA around and pointing it in the right direction.

Best wishes!

A bit late I know, Colin, should have said it a long while back. Thanks for all your efforts. You are missed.....

Enjoy your freedom...
