MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE
By Willie Bodenstein
Ivan and Sonica van der Schaar are indeed a unique couple, both are besotted with aircraft and together they spend every free hour at their hangar at Petit Airfield working either on their Boeing Stearman that they are rebuilding or simply socialising with numerous friends and visitors.
In early January 2014 the Stearman was joined by another legendary bi-plane, a Pitts Special S-2A that they operate on behalf of Mike Lewis. A Pitts Special was always on the bucket list and having one share their hangar is a dream come true.
On Friday 18 January we undertook an air to air shoot with Stefan of Kitplanes for Africa flying the camera ship. Stefan's flight school and Kitplanes factory is also based at Petit .
The Pitts will be available for intro flights, type and tail dragger conversion and basic aerobatic training.
