Johann started working as a youngster at our company. With a passion for aviation and a brother flying for SAA, it did not take long for Johann to get bitten by the bug. He trained at Kitty Hawk with Timo Rebel and got his PPL.
We flew together a lot for pleasure and for work. He had already passed some Com subjects when the disease struck in 2010.
Our last flight together was 6 February for breakfast at Zebula - he was still 100%.
I will miss our chats about aviation in the office as well as the airshows we attended. RIP my friend.

From my logbook, did 34,3 hours with Johann and 30 flights.

Johann was a fantastic student and such a nice guy, we became good friends. He really, really flew well.

Ek gaan jou mis ou maat - jy is die tweede groot ou wat ek verloor in 'n week.

R.I.V. Buddy.

P.S. Ek en ou Timo het lekker oor jou gesels vanoggend.
