Instructed there in 1997 under Morris Tilak - what a legend he was.

Anyone know what Morris is up to now?

I had some great students, and some great dunces.

Sad news, in sad times.

The ABC article had a few inaccuracies but did say they were looking at ways to finish the training for 48 remaining students, so that would be an opportunity for somewhere?

roypilot AFAIK Morris is still around and doing flight tests. a legend for sure.

That is not good news for the other schools in Australia teaching China Southern cadets.

i believe the current cadets will be sent to the Eastern states to finish their training.
as for what CSA will do long term, who knows??

Morris is still around, doing flight tests. He was doing Multi, IFR and CPLs for CSWAFC.

Here is a link to the ABC article.

It will be interesting to see what happens long term in relation to Merredin airport.

Aye Dick,
Perhaps the liquidators could see their way 'clear' to sell it back to the shire for the princely sum of....$1, and so it remains a vital piece of infrastructure to the local wheatbelt / community...??

Its not like it can be 'packed up' and sent to China..??

'Tell 'im 'e's dreamin'....... Ah well.....just a thort.......



p.s. Thanx again for the............

If the rates have not been paid, maybe the Council can just claim it.
