Flyin

Due to a lot of flood damage to my home at the Keurboomsriver in Plettenberg Bay, and the bad state of the landing strip at Stanley Island, I will not be able to fly to Plett and therefore not be able to attend the flyin with a Whisper. Maybe I will drive. Sorry guys.

ZU-Eid's new Trim

Due to the fact that I have nothing to do during weekends, I desided to give ZU-EID a new look.
Attached ZU-EID. (Sorry Gary for coping your design) I chance your lightning strike to a "W" for Whisper.

Paradise Beach Flyin

Thanks, I think myself and Jannie will attend. But first we must talk to the Bosses, to get their permission. The monday is a public holiday, so there will be enough time to come back for work.

Vredendal Flyin 2007

The Pipistrel belongs to Kobus Nel. It is bass at Nieuwoudtville and Kobus is the Pipistrel agent in South Afrika. The pipistrel is a nice plane, lighter than the Whisper with nearly 50% better climb rate. But at R800 000.00 for a Pipistrel, the Whisper is King.

Vredendal Flyin 2007

More than 100 aircraft to visit the Vredendal Fly in the weekend of 25 Aug 07. Amongst them a Whisper Express, which drew a lot of attention?
