  4. Hi, can you tell me more? Classifieds section isn’t available.
  5. Hi Brendon. How did the test flights go? Can we get some photos?
  6. I Don't suppose anyone has a spare seat to Ozkosh from Brisbane area? Happy to contribute.
  7. I agree with onetrack choose an Aussie aircraft to sypport our local manufacturers.
  8. Aviation incident, Whitsunday Island QPS Media on Jan 28, 2016 @ 7:13pm A 25-year-old woman has been airlifted to Mackay Hospital with neck injuries following the heavy landing of a sea plane off Whitsunday Island. Preliminary investigations suggest around 3.30pm, a sea plane was conducting a routine landing into Chance Bay when it struck rough water. The plane bounced before landing heavily, coming to a stop on the beach and colliding with some vegetation. There were seven women and four men on board the plane as passengers – all aged in their twenties and thirties. Apart from the woman airlifted to Mackay, no one else on board was injured and they have now returned to Hamilton Island. The Whitsunday Water Police attended the scene to render assistance. The plane poses no navigational or environmental hazard and it is expected to be retrieved tomorrow. At this stage, it appears likely that no further investigation by the Queensland Police Service will be necessary
  9. BREAKING NEWS: RACQ CQ Rescue is now en route to the Whitsundays after a light aircraft incident in the water near Hook Island. 11 people are believed to be aboard. More details to come.
  10. Good morning all, Am i the only one that would love to see pictures of the restoration progress?
  11. Hi Riley, Did you ever get your Sapphire back together?
  12. Does the idea of a ballistic parachute ease everyone's mind?
  13. interesting to see my idea is not an original. In the latest "Sport Pilot" magazine Ligetti is looking to re-engineer the Stratos. Also a single seat. They have more resources and are further along their path. I wish them all the best. Have a look at their website. http://www.lgtaerospace.com/index.php/home
  14. I had a tandem design envisioned for the future, however the re-power needs to come first. I am loving the discussion this has generated for this lovely little plane. Hopefully the numbers stack up, and we can get her airborne again.
  15. My understanding of the new manufacturing techniques in both pre-preg glass and carbon filament winding makes me think it is possible to make it structurally sound, and priced competitively, however it cannot be pursued further without market interest making it worthwhile. At this point, approx 400 people have responded. It needs a lot more feedback. So please share with all your friends here and overseas, so we can get an accurate result. Thank you everyone for the discussion, it has been extremely helpful and hopefully we can get another Australian manufactured aircraft back in the air.
