This was originally posted by Andrew King (Hampshire) on my previous site, but, of course, I love what this man said, so have copied it over here since my earlier site is being dismantled and becoming this one.
Well first of all let me set the scene: I'm a UK PPL holder and having heard about the amazing coastline and wildlife situated in Kwa-Zulu Natal I thought it prudent to spend some time flying around witnessing it all for myself.
What an experience it turned out to be and it was made that much better by the assistance and kind hospitality afforded to me by Telani and co.
Several "issues" had to be resolved with the SACAA reference the validating of my license and, true to form they didn't let me down, but throughout the process I was guided and coached!
It was eventually resolved and the flying commenced....what a brilliant facility it was, that allowed me to tailor the flying to suit my holiday. When I did get airborne I was not let down with an amazing array of animals of which whales have to be at the top of my list among too many to mention other wild animals!
So to round it off I'd like to express my gratitude to a fantastic team that allowed what could have been a terrible experience with the documentation turn into a brilliant holiday....many thanks!!
