Wont say I am one of the "ou manne" but I have been here since 2009...

I also agree the forum is getting to quiet !!!

Seems like all the airfields/clubs is now doing there own things and fly aways are only known to that particular club.I am sure there is still a lot of
flying going on and the sport is growing or is it ? I also don't see the usual "Frikkie went solo" type posts!!

Lets see if we can get the club's to post some numbers of active members.

Ntokozo
1 x Microlight (Nicolas)
1 x Explorer (Francois)
For sure Tribal, the whole social media thing took the fun out of a lot of things, including this forum ##

Active birds at Crosswinds:
6 x Trikes (3 Aquilla's,1 Raptor,1 Gemini and 1 Airborne Redback)
2 x Thunderbird's
2 x Savannah's

Ek het vandag met twee ander van die ou manne gepraat. Ons is al drie boordensvol vir alle K@K wat die commission nou in ons kele afdruk. Het n paar joppies oor om te doen, dan is ek klaar met aviation. Dis waar die ou manne is. Nou kan jy ophou wonder.

Al die onnodige nonsens haal al die fun uit vlieg uit. Ek is nie eers meer lus om die donnerse ding uit sy hangar te stoot nie.

Boet, you need to speak English more and a couple Klippies & coke to release that supressed personality.

Vertel almal die dag toe jy stilletjies oor die wal by die Kalahari gaan vlieg het vir rus en vrede to die Ballito manne jou aerie oppie grond gesien het.

Ek is ook nog gereeld hier, would not call myself one of the "ou manne" either. This is more entertaining than whtsapp :lol: As Boet said all the redtape that we have to deal with is slowly getting at me too. I have invested a huge amount of dosh in my aircraft workshop, and , having taken over the Cubby manufcturing binds me to this trade for a good while to come.......been at it for 20 years this year :twisted: :mrgreen: and besides I kinda enjoy it ## ## ## ##

It was good of you to join us at Klip Big Man. Loved your plastic fantastic Sportstar. Just can't keep away from your roots. Microlighting will always remain the best. ## (^^)

I still check in now and then too.
Avcom is more active, but activity there has dwindled too.


Not dwindling - in fact about a 6% growth this year in unique visitors.

I want to start flying again but my license lapsed a number of years ago and I am also on BP pills so probably wont pass the medical :?
Also on BP tablets. Medical no real issue, just a slightly different protocol in that the stress ECG is every medical, and not every second one. Also medical validity shorter by half.

I had the ablation procedure done last year in August, on B.p. pills anti coagulants, cholesterol type 2 diabetes and I got my medical as long as everything is under control no problem. It takes a bit of effort cost more if your medical is not prepared to pay for all the blood tests or meds, but if you want to fly microlights or Lsa the only excuse is the one that you want not to fly.
