    Affirm? Or Roger...

    For Oz, the AIP is the definitive document. And AIP GEN 3.4-25 gives it as AFFIRM.

    Changes to Port Phillip Bay VFR lane

    Fixed! (Ian, I know this is as copied from the RAAus email - but they should know better!)
  5. My thoughts entirely - chuck it out the window and follow it down to get on the ground as quickly as possible!

    Plane Spotters

    We used to have a viewing deck at Melbourne (apart from watching planes it was a good place to have a fag!) - and then they closed it down, I think in a panic after 9/11.
  8. One of the best books on aerodynamics I have come across is See How it Flies. The analyses of airflow over a wing are very detailed and sometimes get into some complex formulae - but the basics are fairly easy to grasp with the aid of clear "wind tunnel" diagrams.

    Pax certification?

    Part 61 lists the requirements for a person to taxi an aircraft - and pax are not included.

    Vacuum Gauge

    Isn't that what your MAP gauge reads? But instead of vacuum, it reads out in absolute pressure?

    Silly aviation pictures.

    One of my all times favourites was a sign on a light pole in New Jersey which said "Bill Posters Will Be Violated". Conjured up some pretty unpleasant images of what might happen back at the station!
