Birdseye:

 

OK, it took me a while (who you callin' slow?) but I got it. I thought about doing radio calls Leg End xxxx.

 

On that note, I wonder at some of the aircraft names that some manufacturers give their planes. At the risk of offending some Pipistrel owners.. Seriously? Virus? I just imagine the radio call "Brisbane center Disease xxxx request status of Amberley airspace" ??? And the other one Sinus? What were they thinking?

One of my friends has a Citabria with her partner.

 

He has a full PPL with navs and CTA endorsements. She has one with navs but without CTA and has been told by CASA it will disappear when she does her next AFR under Part 62 to become an RPL

 

This means my friend will lose the ability to pilot an aircraft with more than 4 seats (clearly not the Citabria) so she has decided to do the CTA endorsement for her AFR and thereby retain her PPL

 

If she does a trip into Essendon that will cover her for both C and D airspace.

 

But what it means is that her existing licence is actually downgraded in the transition to Part 62 absent further testing of her. Raises an interesting question regarding eligibility for compensation on just terms for acquisition of her "property" under the Constitution...perhaps the Commonwealth ought waive the fee for the endorsement?

Might be an administrative estoppel in the AAT :-)

What a shame you can't fly it home.

LOL, It's got long legs but not THAT long! Maybe island hopping...

Well if somebody can do Melbourne to London in a little amphibian. It'll be quicker than doing it in the Solar Impulse (still 1600km to go to Hawaii as I write this).

Yee hah, I bet you are busting for a ride. I'd be seriously fretting and pacing up and down just now.

Yep 182 with the strut in the wrong place and a funny nose wheel ....wonder if it'll have the 182 whistle that they all have. Looks like we are going GA after all... Now a 180 or a 185 or even a 195 and we'd be talking !.......

You don't know the half of it....how many more sleeps? It is supposed to ship next Friday if all goes well. Then it will be on the water for HOW long? Then there's the CofA and registration process to go through. At this end it seems like forever, but I know that once I have it and start flying it, all this waiting will be soon forgotten.

Rumor is they have a radio controlled one as well, but who cares if it goes OK and gives enjoyment. Plenty of replicas around.

I'll put in a request to Aeropilot for a tail dragger, just for you.

It is actually radio controlled. My wife will be driving from the ground. Just as well that airplanes don't need to be parallel parked.

 

Edit: I should have said radio controlled from the right seat.

Did you mean 'remote' controlled?

Well, after a fashion I guess. Once she puts her headset on, I'm "radio controlled" from then on.
