I have just been buying some aircraft air tools as a present for my brother. He has been helping me out with a lot of jobs in my house and therefore I have decided that I would like to buy him a really nice present. A set of tools may not sound very exciting to some people, but to him, I am sure it will be welcome.
He is always tinkering about with his plane and buying new parts for it. I think that it is costing him much more money than he would like to admit and I think that the recession is hitting him hard. I could tell that he was shocked at the price of the aircraft wheel that he bought a while ago. I know that he is finding money a problem because his wife has been made redundant and with prices rising it is tough for everyone.

He hates not being able to manage his money and he does do a great job of looking after his family but I think he goes without a lot of things to help them out. Yes, a plane sounds like a big luxury but he bought that with inheritance and so it was not really something that his family was entitled to share anyway and his wife insisted that he spoil himself for once. I don't think either of them had any idea about what the running costs would be.
He keeps complaining about how the tools he has for his plane repairs are not that good. He has recently bought some new aircraft jacks but he cannot afford to buy any new tools now. I think he is also finding it hard justifying the purchase because his tools work, but they are just not as good as new ones would be.
I am hoping that the gift will be a really welcome present for him and will make his aircraft repairs a lot easier. I am also hoping that he might take me for a ride once he has it all fixed up, so I guess I do have an ulterior motive for giving him this gift! I am sure he will want to take everyone up in it once it is fixed up again as I know he has been generous in promising lots of people rides. I hope that he adds my name to the list!
