Down but not out

I am still around, just bad weather and indifferent finance have curtailed any chance I've had of getting airborne once again. I also want to offer my condolences to the family of the Tauranga flying instructor killed yesterday when the 152 she was in went down in rugged bush country east of Whakatane. Statistically flying is much safer than driving in this country but it's still a potentially hazardous vocation.

Three crashes in three days isn't a good start to summer

hey, name's Jacob, and I'm a fellow PPL holder. I am currently living and working in Malaysia, and there's no opportunity for me to go flying. Plus, my licence isn't valid here... Keep up with the flying and photo's - overseas flying is strictly limited to the 'elite' of society, so really appreciate the freedom to fly in NZ. I am not current, but have over 130 hours logged, so when I return home, I'm gonna get straight back into it. Chin up with the finances, I went thru the same thing. I want to extend my condolences to the family of the pilot lost, makes you realise just how important it is to do what you love with your life... I'll drop in from time to time to read your exploits and see your photo's!

Hey Jacob, thanks for reading my blog. I'll make every effort to maintain my PPL until a medical or financial hardship grounds me. Fingers crossed it will be many years from now.
