who are the pilots of this beast ?????
Avcommer Tokoloshe is one and I am sure Mark Jackson is rated too. Tokoloshe is a SAA pilot on the side! :wink: :lol:

Mark Jackson does not have ATPL which might be a requirement for the Captain's seat.

His son Peter is also rated on the Blackhawk and as far as I know has his ATPL.

I seriously doubt that aircraft is being operated under any part that would require an ATP.
