 - 25 years later and they FLY once more -

2Flying Again5 years ago I took my parents for a flight to Newcastle to visit some friends. Today I once again had the pleasure to take them flying.

I always joke that my parents are sometimes like my dog and I say this with all the respect. The dog does not let an opportunity go by and jumps into the car as soon as the door is open. Mom and Dad are similar when it comes to flying. Open the door of the aircraft and they are in.

This is the first time they have flown with me since I have had my PPL renewed. As a matter of fact they are basically my first passengers apart from the flight I did with Gerda. OK so that actually makes them no 2 & 3.

I am exceptionally happy about getting my license back even if it is a major effort getting in and out. Every time I struggle I am once again assured that building my own accessible aircraft was the correct decision despite the wait and hardships. Every time I now fly I wish it was in my own aircraft. 

Just the motivation I need to carry on!

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.
