Born and raised in PTA and my dads farm just outside Groblersdal.
As a child I grew up wanting to be just like my uncle, pilot and captain in something big with jet engines! After matric, I did my CPL and there after my instructors rating. I was fortunate enough to be able to have parents who funded my training. After flying LSA’s I got the opportunity at Airtec.
Working my days as a flight tracker and now Ops controller. I am busy writing my ATPL exam so that I can fly the majestic Let410. My dream however is to sit at 36000ft at mach 0.85.
I have had a passion for children as I helped raise my brothers and sister. I also recently became a father to a baby boy. I couldn’t even imagine for one second what it would be like to grow up in an orphanage as I was fortunate enough to grow up in a loving and caring family. My heart goes out to all the kids in these kinds of situations and I feel, however not much, that I can contribute to this amazing day Felix organized. God bless all children.
