    About 70% there but lots of paperwork and requirements. Did sim checks in Jakarta must say they were quit strict know what to look for but was happy with sim and our performance. Even the sim itself had to be approved.Busy with their CAA exams.

    Good news.
    I enjoyed my time there, some fantastic countryside and vistas.
    Bloody hard work at times, too.

    From the photos it looks repairable. Cairns is Skytech, Jerry's part of the empire.

    After almost no flying last year (matric intervered somehow.....), Jnr is back in the air.

    However, changed flight schools, so he has to get use to Sling 2's vs Cessna 152/172's.

    Anyhow, this is what the ABKZNNC looks like from the air on a stunning day.

    Just for info wat is the cost of the Sling versus the Cessna 172 these days. When I was doing my PPL 2006 a 172 was R1250 /hour all inclusive.
    Many happy and safe landings.

    It looks as if he survived it, so your blood pressure can return to normal.

    I'm sure the shining face and excited retelling of the event more than made up for the harrowing minutes of waiting.

    I imagine it is a bit different than waiting for him to come back from the cafe on his first outing after getting his driver's licence!
