      Hi Jim, The NZ Team really needed help while in Brasilia, Your contribution was really appreciated. We are all on our way home now and I am working out all the bills, We feel we will break even which is amazing that none of us have gone into debt. Thankyou again Jim for making the Worlds so much less stress free. Kind regards Jonas, Hagen, John, Derek.

      Hi Kris, Thankyou heaps for your donation, The NZ Team really represented New Zealand well over in Brasilia, Many pilots want to now come and fly here, Our NZ crew were very well liked and the NZHGPA should be proud of them all. Your donation came at a great time. The boys got together and have decided to reimburse our team Manager the 250 Euro he paid as an entry fee which was just fantastic for us all to do. Many thanks Derek, Hagen, John, Jonas.
