Mex­i­can fan

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Kia-ora, (hi) my name is Mike Gomez. I am an air­plane model-maker; I’ve been fly­ing re­mote con­trol air­planes and he­li­copters from an early age and do­ing Poly­ne­sian mu­sic and dance too. I would like to in­form you that I am one of the most en­thu­si­as­tic and fan of all of you, Maori cul­ture and SWMAC, and I want you to know that from this chan­nel, it is the way that I feel very close to New Zealand and to those peo­ple that makes, have or even think like me, just be­cause of the same hobby.

This is an in­ter­na­tional mat­ter and all the peo­ple who do this kind of job or hobby, should be in contact with oth­ers to ex­change ideas and im­prove our aero­dy­namic and elec­tron­ics ex­pe­ri­ence.

I know that to many peo­ple this hobby is some­thing like a sim­ple game or that the air­craft are toys but this is not true, This hobby be­comes to be ed­u­ca­tional, cul­tural and for an ex­tra­or­di­nary phys­i­cal and men­tal de­vel­op­ment, not only for us as adults but also for all of our sons.

Haere mai (wel­come) Mr Bruce, and haere mai to your friends of SWMAC and to all the pi­lots and air­plane model mak­ers that makes this won­der­ful hobby. M Gomez Lopez
