kevinfrost Posted December 14, 2008 Share Posted December 14, 2008 In the current edition of Australian Pilot, page 8 there is an article headed (RA-Aus explores the need to get heavier) which quotes Lee Ungermann as to the reasons why. Included in the article are two photos of a Drifter. To the uneducated toward our movement this weight goal must be akin to the Wright Bros stepping from the Wright Flyer and attempting to take of in a Rockwell Commander. A photo of a Technam, Jabiru or the likes would have made it look like a smaller stepping stone. Perhaps they got the desired result. Having flown most of the light stuff I have nothing against the Drifter or the likes, they"re good fun. A different photo would have done the cause better. There is also a good article ASIC Card and The self administration of the SAAA. I find it hard to see CASA letting two large organisations so closely aligned operating as separate entities.
