Wow, thanks guys...


Was a bit worried.


Heard some cultures have "un-spoken" animosity to others...


Just wanted to see if I am honestly not in the wrong place.


To answer that question: I travel a lot, so I am in JHB a lot.


I often go to Rand and Grand Central, coz they have better facilities and more aircraft than any private or small airstrip here in CT...


Other than that - I am looking into buying my own plane (light and small, like a SkyRanger) and using it for my business as well (as a company car, type of thing).


I wanted to do my PPL or MPL (or do you call it an UPL?) already but I have an Asthma problem I needed 6 months to sort out first...


Then I'm gonna be up there with the rest of them/you...


I am also looking at imigrating to Oz, and have family there that moved a while ago and a friend in the same industry, so...


So I have some questions...


1. Is there a spot on this site for Non-Aviation-related questions and stuff? Also want to find out more about Oz..


2. Are there any "unspoken" rules I should know about? I'd hate to get BANNED or sumthin...


3. For A/c manufacturers or other pilots - what's the most recommended U/L or M/L for "general" enjoyment AND business use?


Thanks again...


That's me!

G'day Forensic flyer.


How do I feel about South Africans.


Ive been there and for a while kept wondering why there were so many Dutch tourists, until I realised they were Africaans speaking South Africans.


They frightened me when I ended up in downtown Joburg just on dusk on a sunday evening, not a good time or place for safety. Really they are good people except for the lawless few.


Iv'e got relations in Cape Town and Joburg and they love it. I loved the bush.
