For the past two days I've been in Wanaka, catching up with Kylie from U-Fly who is leasing our Skyleader GP One demo aircraft. Kylie and husband Ivan have recently had a cute baby girl, Ella-May, so they are now very proud parents.
The GP One's exhaust did not survive having a thick heater intake welded to it. The Skyleader management team were not happy with this failure - they hatched a plan to send me home with a replacement exhaust, so that we could get the GP One back into the air. They made a surprise presentation of the exhaust just before I departed. I bought it home to NZ in my suitcase! A big thank-you to Skyleader.
By mid-morning, the first pilot had rocked up to hire the GP One. He booked it again for the afternoon to take his wife for a spin.
