Dit lyk alles na goeie veranderinge. Ja, die versekering bybetaling is verhoog, maar so ook die voordele. Ek is bly die dekking ten opsigte van volgrootte vliegtuie is bygebring. Nie dat daar sulke ongelukke aangemeld is nie, maar dit is waaroor versekering gaan, die onvoorsiene.

Thanks Clive en dankie Klaas,

The SMC is really committed to bringing value to the members, after all it is your association and we of need have to ensure that you derive benefits from your subs.
Bringing the financial end in line with the calender year has its own challenge as we will be reporting for a short year and then a long year.

I want to have a SAMAA Flyin of all disciplines in JUly of 2015 and I want input from everyone who is interested to Fly In.

Kind regards

Mike
