Hello to all my fellow pilots


Recommended Posts

I am just completing my RPL and should be flying my Jabiru J160 in no time. Have started planning a circumnavigation of Australia and would like to talk to people that have done it, want to do it or want me to stop off in their home town for a visit en route. Happy flying... Jeremy

G'day Jeremy, can't recall meeting you, but I'm usually only at YMBD Fridays instructing at Hangar 2. Had a nice day today despite the hot weather. Flew to Aldinga for coffee, Victor Harbor, coastal to Murray Mouth return to YMBD with a friend for his 50th b'day gift TIF from his wife. First time in a light a/c of any sort and loved it. Air was smooth as ever despite the 38C temps.


Don't know anyone in particular who has done what you're planning, except perhaps Ross Vining who has done it in his Searey amphibian. You could contact him via the Seaplane Pilots Assoc Aust website. He's done lots of circumnavigation of the coast plus inland diversions right through the centre.




Good luck with your RPL and the J160.

The coordinates to my strip are...17.13.110, 145.56.087 and I`m situated at Deeral, 45 k south of Cairns and almost the same distance to Innisfail, to the south....Just let me know you are coming and I`ll be waiting to greet you.


No trouble getting in and out of my main strip, with a Jab.

Sorry I must have pushed the wrong key


A stuff up


To cut it short the experience I gained would have taken me years if ever to duplicate


The very Proffesional pilots running the tour taught me heaps


I was a very new RPL pilot and would reccomend something similar if you can manage it


one trip included a Tecnam Warrior and a 172 so the 230 was very competative


All fuel, accommadation, transport was arranged. Just flight plan and enjoy


the way to go in my opinon
