  1. We already have lots of pads of A3 graph paper. What he wants to do is convert the data (x,y co-ordinates) into a life-size drawing on graph paper. He wants to take data like this Data file, and plot it like the Graph file. He is not trying to make a tracing of an existing aircraft. I have explained how much work (plotting x,y & joining the dots) this will be, but he is adamant that this is what he wants to do, he only needs a long roll of pre-printed graph paper .... then a huge table to work on .... Fortunately he has a lovely wife who puts up with him I tried
  2. Mr FV wants to graph an aerofoil, life-size, so he is after some graph paper that will stretch that far, so he can plot the x,y co-ordinates and lay it out for wing construction, design etc. I tried a quick search for Graph Paper Rolls and came up with little in Australia. Thinking like a Plotter roll (or smaller), but with pre-printed grid. Any ideas on where we can get some? I see that Birch makes a dressmaker's graph paper in rolls. Anyone used that or any other suggestions? Mr FV is not computer savvy and has resisted my suggestions of an Excel chart (I did one for him pre

  11. At least this guy has an aviation background and won't need to spend a year learning about ultralights, CASA regs, etc. Hopefully he is a good manager. Remember our last CEO came from the RSPCA. A previous CEO was ex-military. We have come a long way from when it was run by volunteers in their spare time.
  12. And check Spam. My ISP has started sending bulk mail out emails to the Spam folder on their servers. Means I have to log into my email through the web to access that Spam folder, which is different to the spam folder on my Email client which tosses things to Spam too. Really annoying at the ISP level, because they are Spamming things I regularly read and sending junk like Fishpond and Phishing scams through. I am slowly re-educating it.
  13. Last 2 months, our little club has fielded 4 requests for hangars and more requests for people wanting to fly (we don't have a school, just 18 hangars and 35 members). That's more than we got all last year.
  14. Insurance is going up all over the place due to high exposure to risk and covering past disasters (fire, flood, cyclone) and rising costs. RAA includes insurance for all Pilot members as part of the fee (Non-flying and Associate members don't have it). It will go up as all other insurance did, and because the members have been asking for an increase in coverage. But the membership isn't going up, just yet, which is a good thing.
