New venture

nzompilot is facing a change.

Aviation has and always will be a big part of who I am, but I haven't been able to get into the left or right hand seat for quite a number of years due to medical reasons.

The past four years I have been working in admin for an IT and telecommunications dealer but was recently made redundant from that.

So I have decided the time is right to open my own business.  So Stord Trading from nzompilot was born.

Stord Trading is an ebay store based on the platform and I am using it to offer consumers the same IT, electronics and technology that I have previously only sold to business and corporate customers through my previous role.

I am taking this opportunity to use the same suppliers and all my industry contacts to offer the same products and deals to you via ebay that my previous employer offers to its corporate clients, in fact in some instances I am offering you better deals than they are.

But aviation is not forgotten as there are a few aviation models available for sale via the store as well.  I am downsizing my own collection selling off all my international models to focus just on Australasian carriers.

Please help me out by visiting the store HERE - please bookmark the link and visit often as I am always uploading more stuff for sale.  You can also like the store's Facebook page HERE.

If you have any aviation models you would like to sell off I do sell on commission and am happy to  help you sell off any models you no longer want.  The same goes for quite a lot of things.  If you are interested please contact me via email ebay at nzompilot dot info

Undisputed Champions

Yesterday afternoon along with 51.1 thousand others I was at Suncorp Stadium to see my beloved Brisbane Roar become the Most Successful Club in Hyundai A-League history.

Brisbane Roar are the first club to claim 3 Championships.  Along with that we hold 2 premierships, doing the double in 10/11 and now in 13/14.

There were a lot of highlights in the game yesterday form both sides, as well as standout performances.

I want to congratulate the Wanderers, making back to back grand finals is a feat in itself, let alone in the first 2 years of existence!  I also want to pay tribute to the travelling Red and Black Bloc fans who showed up in numbers yesterday to try and bring some of the 'Wanderland' atmosphere to Suncorp.

Thomas Broich once again proved he is the best import the A-League has seen with his well timed fee kick finding fellow import Besart Berisha for the Roar's first goal.
Bes has been a standout for the club in his 3 seasons here, and we will miss him greatly now he has headed off to Melbourne Victory, I just hope in the time he has been here he has taught Michael Theo how to stop him when he is in on goal.

Most Successful Club in the Hyundai A-League
I will admit that after the poor start we had to season 12/13 under Rado after the departure of Ange, I was less than impressed when the club appointed Mike Mulvey as Head Coach, but I am more than happy to stick my hand up and say I was wrong.  Mulvey has been the leader the club needed and in his 1.5 seasons took us from the depths to the semi final in 12/13 and then to runaway Premiers and then Champions in 13/14.

Brisbane fans rejoice for once again we are the Champions, Wanders fans take heart, you were a formidable opponent and I believe using this loss as motivation you can continue the strong showing in the ACL and go far in that competition.
