Yay! A week ago I was called into the Sqdn Commanders Office. It turned out I had been selected to be one of 4 people in the RNZAF to fly the Boeing 757 for VIP transport. So right away I accepted and now I'm waiting for the special e-mail for information on the training course (yes there is one in the Royal New Zealand Air Force.) Hopefully it'll be in the next week or two. I'll keep ya' posted.

Cheers,
RNZAF Pilot; Tom Kilpatrick.

It turns out it is in 3 weeks at Whenuapai AFB. We're first training in the RNZAF C-130H Hercules. And after a week, we start training in the 757.

Haha, I think I might have the best job; except from the RNZAF Airplane Tester & Developer. Thats where you get to fly the old Airmacchis and A-4's and manage and/or buy new aircraft as we need them.

Time for a beer i reckon 🙂)
