Sorry for anyone that has been trying to get in touch with me, for some reason (not banned!) I cannot post in either private or public.
Just got back from holiday and having nothing to do for the next couple of weeks so look forward to meeting some of the new guys and girls in town!

In reply to SRT's question,
There is a huge demographic for training all the botswana pilots that are being sent to SA instead of completing their training in Bots.
Its a sad waste of hours that could be going to local pilots. An average class of 10-20 pilots is between 2000-4000hrs, per year.

From what I have heard, it is destined for francistown as there is more space, both on the ground and in the air, and a better lifestyle there. More tempting to bring the pilots from Gabs as opposed to them having to move to maun.
