Had a visit from Don Waters CAA Area Rep yesterday (3rd Jan) good to catch up it's always good have an informal chat to catch up with things coming outa Wellington and what we have been up to etc. We were in the process of a Mandatory check we needed to do so he got a first hand eye on that.
Good to see ya Don always welcome at SD.
Big news of the day is Kenny went Solo in SND. WELL DONE THAT MAN a Rating in the Sonerai and also a Tail Dragger rating as well.
