Hi All,
I have done about 140 Hours so far on ZU-TUK and going very well.
Craig will be flying his Tucano soon ( ZU-TUC ) . He is just busy with final touches and then Maiden flight.
Marius still has a long way to go with his Tucano, hopefully some day there will be 4 flying in SA.

Just for interest there is another Tucano up in Joburg area that is for sale at about one third the price I paid for my plane.
I did my conversion on this Tucano about 2 years ago and it fly's great. It has a bit better performance than my one as it has the FlyGas super charger.
If anyone is interested in this Tucano send me a message and I can connect you with the seller.
Whoever buys this one will get a bargain of a lifetime.
With the poor ZAR to Euro and other factors a Tucano Replica like my one with the same avionics will cost you about 2.5M.

Farren, my only gripe is that you're way too high when you come over my place... 8) 8)
