Women Building & Flying in Africa on BBC World

On the Health Show broadcast on BBC World news today, Patricia and Jonathan talk about building and flying light aircraft in Ghana, Africa: "Women blazing the trail; flying, maintaining and even building planes to deliver health education in remote rural areas of Ghana."

Watch the video clip, starting at 11:40.

Many of you you met Patricia (pictured here) and Jonathan Porter at Oshkosh AirVenture 2011 this summer.

Thank you to the wonderful Zenith family for all the support you give - especially to those who have sent Clecos, unused drill bits, files and a variety of other 'post build donate-able items'. The team coming out from Atlanta (where such items can be sent) will leave at the end of Jan - so if you get some nice things over Christmas and decide your old items could be sent out to a new life in the tropics (includes instruments, tools, etc), please contact me. BIG REQUEST FOR A SET OF 'STILL IN KIT FORM' AMPHIBIAN FLOATS FOR THE 801 (or 701) the need for that one is REALLY getting BIG now - Many thanks.
