For those of you who read our recent newsletter, and heard about the avionics upgrades taking place in the aircraft, we had an exciting day today.
Scotty went for a successful Test flight following completion of its upgrade and a recent engine change.
It will now return to service as part of the MAF Uganda fleet and work will begin on the avionics upgrade of FRM.

Earlier this year we told you about the new little Diesel 182 that had arrived in Uganda.
It is the first Diesel 182 here in Uganda so Mark & Ronny (another engineer) headed off to France & Germany in March to receive training on maintaining this aircraft.
Since then they have been registering and preparing the plane for service in S Sudan.
This is a big week....On Friday Mark & Ronny will sit their oral exam in order to try and obtain their 182 type rating licence, allowing them to carry out maintenance on this aircraft.
Please pray for both of them as they study in these last couple of days (especially since Mark has not been too well this week) and that their exams would go smoothly.
