Is anyone here interested in an under-wing camp over in north-west NSW, very near Aerokits, perhaps in March this year after the weather cools off a bit but before it gets too cold. Might be a good chance for some to have a shake down before a trip to Nat-fly at easter.

I'll be pretty busy at work, but if this wasn't the case, I would have loved to come along. Sounds like a great get together 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

Aerokits latest build should be christened by the end of the week, my strip is usually first landing on his maiden flights because it is nice and open for an easy landing so I will grab you some co-ordinates off his GPS and post them. Give some thought to a suitable weekend, my schedule is pretty flexible.

Don't think I will have my Xcountry endorsement by then 051_crying.gif.fe5d15edcc60afab3cc76b2638e7acf3.gif well certainly not if this bloody rain doesn't stop

That being the case we can do it in February then?

Do we have to make a Jabiru exception for you Tomo?

Not necessarily, I fly a few more types these days as well... ;)

It would be a long way down here in a drifter and I am not sure that 750m of grass would be enough for a 206.

That's plenty!! Could land twice in that distance!

Can you give us a location? North West NSW is a big area! I could do it from Gawler using Broken Hill as a fuel/dunny stop.

30km south of Yetman, nearly directly by road, But co-ordinates will follow shortly, I don't have any GPS except an ag lightbar.

I guess we get brainwashed into thinking we are north-west because we are in the north-west slopes weather district, granted your point, It's not as west as Tibooburra.

North West NSW to me covers the area from say Lightning ridge to Broken Hill. North east, well, Moree to the top corner tweed area. either area is ok, its about 5 hrs in the Savvy from Wollongong to Lightning ridge, 6 to Bourke. all non stop if you have a big enough bladder.

206? I'd get the Kingair in there, just wouldn't be getting it out without a decent headwind!022_wink.gif.2137519eeebfc3acb3315da062b6b1c1.gif

We could get everyone on the far end with their aircraft and hold them on full throttle, might give you a bit of a headwind... 010_chuffed.gif.c2575b31dcd1e7cce10574d86ccb2d9d.gif

Linda is due with our 2nd bub around the 20th of Febuary. I'm thinking I would probably be allowed to come down around the 10/3/12 if that suits anyone. No one has put up a date yet. What's everyone reckon.

That date is as good as any for me.

 

I got the co-ordinates for the strip off Google Earth tonight

 

29'08.700 150'43.500 @ 1200 ft.
