Hi there, I am Alex!

I spent my first 20 professional years as a pilot instructor in the South African Air Force (SAAF). I have flown over 3500 hours in a range of helicopters and training aircraft, amassing over 1000 hours of flying instruction. It was a privilege to fly numerous rescue missions, humanitarian work, aerial fire-fighting and security work inside and outside South Africa. My most noteworthy flight was with ex-president Nelson Mandela and having the honour of shaking hands with him! Additionally, a career highlight was the 4 years flying in the SAAF formation aerobatic team as both the number 3 and lead pilot.

It is always wonderful to see when a local TA person achieves the next level within the Transactional Analysts’ community – we are so happy for our SATAA chairperson Karen Pratt who passed her TSTA (E)! Well done Karen – from doing your TA 101 in 2001 to our CTA in 2008, then doing a Training Endorsement workshop and another 7 year contract for TSTA. What a journey!

Karen, it is wonderful to have you here in South Africa as a TSTA, and we know there are many people benefiting from the range of workshops you are offering, from your coaching, and your supervision.
