Tough Times! PDF Print E-mail

Well where does one start!!!! Over the last few months it feels like I've been bashing my head against the wall. Times have been tough here at home - on all fronts - and I have had to take stock and prioritize my life to get everything into a meaningful sequence. Now I am going to put to practice what I am always preaching to everyone else and tackle each task with passion and determination.........

Fund-raising for Rivas! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Arthur D Piercy   
Monday, 10 June 2013 15:24

As most of you are aware I have managed to make contact with the Mig 23 pilot Maj Rivas!

Both of us are equally excited to set up a 'Reconciliation' meeting and he has accepted - in principle - an invitation to come to South Africa.

Naturally funds are an issue for all of us so I have taken the liberty to set up a fund-raising campaign to see if we can raise the monies to get him out here!

If you feel you can contribute then please follow this link http://igg.me/at/project-dreamwings/x/3540964 and donate otherwise just spread the word around for please!!!

Alternately you can deposit/transfer the funds into the Power of 10 banking account with the reference RIVAS!

Aircraft Moved PDF Print E-mail
Written by Arthur D Piercy

The aircraft had to be moved!

Unfortunately we were forced to move the aircraft from our hangars at Wonderboom airport. The increase in the rent for the hangar was just beyond our reach so we had no other optyion but to move it.

We were very fortunate that the SAAF museum has given us a little corner in which the aircraft is currently standing. We are unable to work on the aircraft at the hangar as we need permission from the authorities to make use of the floor space we require.

We are busy negotiating with the SAAF and hopefully we will have an answer soon.

Testimonials

Extracts from a testimonial recieved from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA)

"I would like to thank Arthur Piercy for inspiring us. We need to always have driven and positive human beings like him, who don't constantly dwell on the ills of the past but on the possibilties of the future" (Zola)

"To me the important points that he made were that one's life is very important and it is that indiviual's responsibility to take care of it no matter what; and that determination can conquerany obstacle" (David)

"I was humbled by his humility, determination and passion for life. Nothing can and will stand in his way and I admire it about him. He just opened my eyes to the fact that if you want to you can, all you need is determination" (Ntombi) 

"Indeed your response to a life changing circumstance certainly places you in a special class, somewhere above the rest of us. But your incredible sense of humour, your humaness - those form the bridge that allows ordinary human beings to rub shoulders with you and face their own, smaller situations, encouraged. Thank you for that." Nadia Coetzee : Director: Foreign Qualifications Evaluation and Advisory Services.
