A dozen flying Whispers

Postby whisper » Mon Dec 17, 2007 8:54 pm

Today Dave Taylor took to the sky for the first time. He and Carl Botha built from a basic package and have a Subaru engine installed. They are based at Howick in KZN.
Dave called with the good news minutes after touchdown and understandably he was running on a very rich mixture of adrenalin at that moment.
The thrill of building your own aircraft and doing the test flight yourself is something very special. I doubt he'll forget today easily!

Well done Dave and Carl :D

Dave used his cellphone to call me last sunday whilst doing his first engine off thermalling flight. He was indicating 4m/s up at the time and was nearing cloudbase. Somewhere near Midmar dam in KZN :D :D
