Lep sončen dan je klical po odhodu v naravo. Pot me je vodila na enega izmed vrhov naših prelepih Karavank. To pot sem že večkrat prehodil, vendar sem tokrat lovil sapo, kot bi bil na 7000 metrih, ne pa na slabih 2000. Končno mi je korak zastal. Moral sem priznati poraz in se vrniti v dolino. Ker so se težave z zasoplostjo nadaljevale, sem obiskal zdravnika. Specialist kardiolog je ugotovil, da imam srčno popuščanje. Kmalu je postalo jasno, da potrebujem novo srce. In tudi to, da sem 55. v čakalni vrsti. To bi lahko bila že jutri moja ali pa vaša zgodba.

Pipistrel se je odločil, da bo v obdobju izolacije in omejitev letenja, ki so uveljavljene po vsem svetu, kot doprinos k letalski varnosti preko nenehnega usposabljanja in učenja omogočil prost dostop do vseh svojih spletnih programov šolanja. Also in English

Če si želimo ob tovrstnih krizah zagotoviti večjo samostojnost in operativnost nujno potrebujemo transportno letalo je po zasedanju obrambnih ministrov zveze Nato povedal obrambni minister mag. Matej Tonin.

Minister za infrastrukturo Jernej Vrtovec je danes obiskal letališče na Brniku in se sestal z vodstvom družbe Fraport Slovenija, ki upravlja z največjim slovenskim mednarodnim letališčem.
