Hugo, I find some of your posts a bit cryptic :?
Are you saying that you are exporting your Alou's and that is their new home in NZ ?

Few changes at Petit, if you buy a hangar there you can ( optional) by a share of the land also. A group of guys ( +- 6) running/managing the airfield with a voting system for you to say yes or no to procedures/ideas/work done. If you do not vote it is taken as a yes. Full time groundsman employed for maintenance. Hangars already sold are turning into refurbished man caves. Thank you Don and Shane for your efforts.

Agree that some guys are spending a lot of money getting the hangars up to scratch and better. =D> =D> =D>

Alouette so small against the pumas and the stretched puma. What a lovely day. T

The experience walking around servicing those helicopters, keeping them airworthy, mind blowing. RESPECT. Would not mind working there as a hobby. Could someone on Avcom link me up with something similar in New Zealand?

Shucks, couple of millimeters off the white line with the wheel. The day started with low cloud 200 feet, so stayed low above the field doing hovering exercises until it cleared.

Geluk Dawie, hoop jy het baie plesier met jou nuwe hangar. Kom nou mooi aan met die opgradeering.
