    Am glued to this App whenever Jnr is in the air. Use it to keep tab on his sisters as well.

    Recently got a tongue lashing from No Fear, very unkindly enquiring why we were travelling at 220 kph in her Volvo. I almost admitted to everything but then asked who's phone was she tracking. Was Jnr's. "Was with him the plane Love, that's where the speed comes from, you know I will never go over 120. I am very hurt and emotionally battered by your false accusations and low esteem of me". She made me coffee.

    Thank you for the good wishes.

    Fuel cost saving makes it MUCH more profitable compared to the Cessnas they used previously.

    Congratulations Nell junior. And congratulations proud papa. Does that mean you relax when you fly with him now?
