orchid beach ,jabiru 230 d


Recommended Posts

Excellent vid Kevin and a really good reference for people flying to and using Orchid Beach Airstrip. I did a precautionary search there in a 170 and it was really quite rough approaching the threshold. I think I was getting some ridge air.


Nice landing too!

This stunningly beautiful landing strip can be challenging to land and take off on. Pilots who recently landed there , advocate only using a 6 cylinder aircraft on a cool day .


.It is short ( 678m) and the grass can be " sticky" in the middle section.


I practiced 100 short field take offs and landings before landing there with a 6 cylinder Jabiru 230 D.


Hervey Bay , Australia is one of the worlds secret top getaways
