I'll be there Saturday night, I'll be sure not to take off from the taxiway (I hope).

Re: Gauteng Government launches specialised aviation school

A weird written article. I doubt kids will be flying an aircraft from Cape Town to Cairo. Second, explain to me how a decrease in the rdp houses budget will ensure that nobody has to cue for rdp houses. If this article is real, than their plan is a big joke.

Re: Number of Posts

Hi Howie, I see your last post in Travel Advisories is 27. I've counted them and it's correct. Maybe you need to clear your cache? Your total posts are 87. You'll probably have more than that, but we've lost part of our database with the last move to this phpbb platform. I'm not sure how that happen...

Thanks gents :thumbs: Our 7th MAX is arriving in DXB today. I think a total of 175 were ordered and next year we'll get 2 per month.

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2018

So after putting it off for the last 3 months, I decided to take the MAX exam today after reviewing the differences course on the CBT. Unfortunately I passed with 100% so I can now expect punishment by flying the MAX on layovers. Once I'm flying it, I'll take some pics for you B407 :thumbs:

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2018

So it went down to 50L? When I was there in March I think it was something like 75L per household member. We also had to shower with the bucket and use it to flush our toilets. Dubai's water comes from a desalinisation plant and certainly doesn't taste great. Everyone looses a lot of their hair here...

Re: SAA chartered plane will still fly to Cuba, but won't be carrying weapons

I don't think SAA has much of a say anymore considering the government is bailing them out continuously. I also wonder how customs got wind of these arms being loaded on the airplane.
