Hannu (above) has been having a great time at SportAviation. Yesterday he flew yet another flight over 500kms in JJ. Average speed 121kms per hour!

We have our suspicions for one reason or another that Hannu really is one of Santa's little helpers! (Just like Kari)

Hannu is a busy boy. As well as soaring long distances he keeps JJ immaculate, is often seen working away on his computer (above) and he is definitely King of the BBQ (below). Hannu often invites guests to join him for a feast.
