Another "bird is hatching" in Port Elizabeth.

Promoting the airplane homebuilding industry in South Africa.

Contact Gavin Lawson  if you are a homebuilder and require aircraft parts made or refurbished.


A new project.

Rego bought Ernie de Goveia's Mk3 Cozy and shall continue to finish it. It is a 3 seater,
2 in the front and one at the back. The strakes (those parts sticking out from the body)
are shorter in overall width than a Mk4 body.

On the 27th October 2013 loaded and ready to leave Lakeside, Cape Town for Port Elizabeth.
