The Keys to the Kingdom

Today is a big day for Ben and Michaela, after barely 4 weeks on the ground they are being given the keys to Kpong Airfield for one week. Although building work has come to a sudden standstill due to lack of cash flow, the upside is that they will not need to deal with masons for the week.... the downside is that B3 (their accommodation) has not yet got the drains sorted out and Mr Solo is still working on their bed and doors... remember we make it all here...

 We will use the available skills sets in the WAASPS staff to get as much done as we can, and Ben and Michaela will be starting some more training with the AvTech girls in relation to health care delivery, nutrition and other topics that will become an integral part of their involvements in MoM...

Perhaps the most exciting part of the day was the preparation of two bags for a quick bag-drop to Battorkope tomorrow, the only community we are currently allowed to drop to, with the documents that they need for us to fly some of their great young people at a forthcoming fly me day... (which will be a day with a difference - since we will also be flying up to 20 Queen Mothers on that day!)

We wish Ben and Michaela lots of challenges with opportunities and solutions during their 'first week of solo ops'!
