Agreed. It can be rationalized and planned, etc. But surely it's based in survival instincts and maybe in a global way too, like survival of the especie.  :biggrin:

1st year = 3x distinctions (Maths, Physics and Experimental Physics) and 1x lower Chemistry (Said he could have worked harder, but chemistry not his main interest)

He says these results puts him in line for 'specialist courses' in 2nd year. I know they have some exchange programs with top Uni's in the USA and EU, maybe it is this... must find out more details. Be cool if it is  :shock:

Mannnn!!! Mom and I are ..like, freaked out, like  :icon_mrgreen:

Update nogal..
The student is bored with the pace  :shock:, so is taking up a double major (maths and theoretical physics).
I visit every weekend to try give direction and perspective... it's working so far.

The pilot has had delays in his path... food poisoning the day before he flies, and then wisdom teeth problems.
The scramble to get the operation done before the next final EU course booking, but all has worked out.
In the meantime Holland and Germany have expressed interest in taking him on  :t :t :t
Contracts to be negotiated after Xmas.

Our ship is on course

First real job confirmed - Has had minor training jobs, but this is the first venture into the big league.  :t :t :t
Contract negotiated and still to be signed, but has the go-ahead for March.

It's been a long 7 year journey, and it's finally all coming together.

Unbelievable

Eldest went for his medical in Athens, and they say he had a problem and suggest one of their specialists.

I launched off like a rocket
BS I said.. they're trying to screw you over for more money.. Find other specialists and equipment.
Simple questions like...
- When was their equipment last calibrated and serviced.
- Are they actually qualified to make that diagnosis.
- If there was a problem it would have been picked up in the past 6 equivalent medicals in ZA.
- If it was a problem it would have prevented him from playing in the top tennis league in ZA for all those years, in which he did very well.

So he said he'd go to two other specialists suggested by the school.... and guess what... No F-ing problem.

The older I get, the more dishonesty I see in these top professions and every other slimy tard that's trying to rip you off.
I worked in the medical industry for a few years... and seen a lot.

Unbelievable.... License finally arrives

It took the Greek Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) ... 11 weeks.. to do 2 weeks worth of 'rubber stamping'.

It's administration puts it in the same league, if not worse, than most african states.
It's a shameful state of affairs there, as far as I'm concerned.

Anyway the Kid has his EU pilot's license and he can start flying again.

We'll see where he ends up.

I had a mate of mine long ago that worked for QANTAS and he used to go to the US once a year and spend some weeks driving "yank tanks" all over California. He had a great time driving Thunderbirds and similar big engine cars and I think this was before the 55 mph limit in the US.
