Thanks Jan,
I did another 0.7 this afternoon. wind was 8-10kt x and the plane handled it OK. We are starting to trust each other now..... :roll: You have to grease the landings as there is no suspension. Puts the fun back into the Tailwheel flying again. Loving it. Total time now just over 2 hours. =D>

Great to see UFI is still flying!
My dad (Tony Wills) passed away last year in May at the age of 89 and I so regret not taking him up to the Jhb area to visit our 'baby'.
I definitely must make an effort to see UFI again as I grew up with her, logged ~ 200hrs on her and got to know her like the back of my hand.
It will be great to get your contact details.
Bets Regards
