Would like to pass our thanks and appreciation to all your staff and everyone at Absolute involved in returning one of our aircraft back to service in Botswana on Thursday night.

Once the parts arrived in Johannesburg I know Absolute had a massive challenge to get these through customs, then through Fedex, and then on to the aircraft.

We really appreciate the teamwork from all of your staff that went into this and managing to get the M2 serviceable and back on line for charter.

– Stuart Mackay
