He went to Switzerland last Dec-Jan to do work experience at Pilatus Aircraft Corp and to learn skiing, which he did in only 3 days. What took me years to practice he mastered in a very short time. The new skiing equipment makes the whole affair much easier too. 

He plays the Harp and Piano. The picture shows Michael playing a $130'000 Steinway in a music shop in Basel. He loves the Lord of the Rings music.

He flies gliders out of Narrogin and can't wait to go solo once he turns 15.

He wants to become a pilot, either with the Airforce or with a Airline.

He has a big collection of model planes and each Dec he organises his own RC model day here at our farm.
