Congratulations to Len du Preez of Kempton Park, Gauteng South Africa, whose Standard-Gear, Jabiru 3300 Powered Waiex (S/N W0208) flew for the first time on October 7th! “After 2 years, 5 months and 7 days on the 7th of October 2017, Waiex #208 flew for the first time,” writes Len. “The first flight was fairly uneventful, waited the whole day for the weather to clear up after major storms and rains over the whole country. A strong cross wind, gusting up to 30 mph on the main runway did not make it any easier… Thanks for all the help from the Sonex team. Really appreciated. Now let’s go fly!” Gold Wings are on the way to Len!
