Newby to the forum, so bear with me if i make mistakes and step on some toes!!!! :D

Quick background- i am new to this sport--have build a cheetah with 2200 (85Hp) Jabiru engine and have done about 60hrs around the patch (Krugersdorp area). Must say i do like flying this aircraft. :D
So the time has come to start and explore!!!! :D

I have been following/reading the forum for a while and was wondering. Why is there no flyaways, getaway's or breakfast's organised by the cheetah owners? If you following the Jabiru forum.....these guys are really on the ball,
isnt it what it's all about--meeting and making new friends, to enjoy flying our aircraft and to explore our beautiful country?

What do you guys/ladies think....lets organise a breakfast or a trip. Would like to see a couple of cheetah standing next to each other, was stil busy building my Cheetah when the fly-inn was arranged by Rainbow Aircraft.

Any ideas/suggestions

Pierre

Howzit Pierre how are you doing man? Long time no hear. When are you coming to visit us at Petit. I think you might find that there are quite a couple of like minded guys there. We have been thinking about doing a little bit of a fly away.
