With all this going on at Boom, is it worth joining a flight school that is based there or not?
Problems wiith management only. Airport still in great condition and schools are great. Purely administrative issues

Do the guys from Skeerpoort still supply fuel?
I bought some AVGAS from them at some stage when Wonderboom was without fuel.

Also carted in jerry cans from Kitty Hawk
Yes Skeerpoort delivers to FAWB and there is a Whatsapp group informing of whenntrucknis on site. Wannafly is also on site onnfull-time basis that also supplies avgas and Jet1 fuel.
