Flying in Africa using a JPI 830

Pilot Dietrich Ian Lafferty is pictured here, flying a C-182 over the costal areas of Central Africa using his trusty JPI 830. The mission is for the Wilderness Conservation Society of New York (WCS),  one of the worlds oldest organizations globally protecting the environment.  On a typical day he will photograph elephant poachers, illegal fishing trawlers off the coast, or fly government officials on fact finding missions covering over seven million acres of  virgin rainforest, with airstrips few and far between.  With little or no  no emergency or rescue services he has learned to study his JPI 830 carefully on every flight.
