I think its the lack of information and the fact that the only experience that most islanders have of these machines is the one a few years ago that got caught with a crosswind while taking off at the airstrip and the pilot and passenger was killed. The pilot was very experienced but there was nothing he could do to avoid it.
I think it would be great if your mate came on here and informed everyone of the safety aspects of it.
I am sure they are a very professional bunch and very experienced
