EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2017 here we come.We have had the surprise of a lifetime.

But first - Project Cuba was cancelled due to matters totally out of our hands. It seems it wasnt the right time in space for this to work. A little disappointing I'd say but we quickly came to terms with the decision when a special couple of friends namely Mark Clulow and Marie Reddy changed the proverbial goal posts.

They decided that the EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2017 seemed like a better alternative and nothing more could make me more excited.

What was an extremely humbling experience, is when the EAA SA Chapter 322 members rallied together and continued raising funds so that Gerda and I can go and enjoy an experience of a lifetime!!

I have searched high and low to find other words more powerful that can replace "THANK YOU" but to no avail because those 2 words do not even come close to expressing our grattitde and appreciation.

It would be unfair to single out any one of those numerous people - some who wish to remain anonomous anyway - who so unselfishly donated towards this lifetime trip. We will be forever grateful. There are days that I have to pinch myself and days that I wonder what did we do to deserve this! generosity!

We will also have the pleasure of travelling with Niel Bowden's Air Adventure Tours and the rest of the South African contingent -over a hundred strong!!!

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.
