  1. A short flight in our new Aeropilot Legend after some minor maintenance and to test out camera positions and settings.
  2. There was a bit of wake turbulence from the nearby hills just before we crossed the runway threshold
  3. The next instalment. The escape continues.
  4. Every year, our flying club hosts a social flying event called the Poker Run. We went last year and again this year. We videoed our participation last year and decided to do it again this year. As luck would have it, this year WE WON!
  5. Was the pilot conducting a short circuit?
  6. This move to the higher weight limit also puzzled me. That is until I looked at it through the administration's eyes. Consider the decision between the two objectives, which to pursue first. Higher weight limit: A higher weight limit will capture some of the smaller GA planes thus increasing the membership count and consequently an increase in revenue for RAAUS. The benefit to members is limited to the new ex-GA owners and those with deeper pockets who want to buy heavier, more expensive aircraft. CTA access: Benefits all existing and potential members, but after all the effort to be expended, only increases RAAUS regulatory obligations without any increase in revenue or membership numbers. It's pretty obvious to me why the RAAUS administration pursued the heavier weight limit first and has put the CTA access in the "too hard" basket, the administration is looking after the interests of the administration first, members second.
  7. The Old Station Fly In 23-25 May 2014 Featuring Matt Hall, Red Bull race pilot as guest speaker and aerobatics demonstration. There was music and food and flying and trucks and tractor pulling and chainsaw competitions and more food and lots of FUN for all. The event was superbly organised, well attended and done for charity.
  8. A flight from Watts Bridge to Gympie in Southern Queensland on a beautiful Autumn day.
  9. We flew out to Murgon and enjoyed the hospitality of Ralph and Deb Percy. It's a great setup there. Very relaxed and friendly. The club members have done a brilliant job developing the facilities there.
  10. A morning flight around Lake Wivenhoe and the dam. Low scattered cloud added to the beauty of the landscape.
  11. Don't know about the collapsed valve clearance on Rotax engines, but Rotax have a procedure for bleeding possible air out of the lifters. From what I've read, it only has to be done when (if) possible air has been introduced to the oil system as in, if the engine is turned backwards or air is allowed into the system during oil changes.
  12. Whoa! Really? You did that? Waaaay cool!!!
  13. Congrats to Matty, he has worked long and hard for this success. He will be champion for life since there will be no more RBAR. I have met him several times and he is a true gentleman, very friendly and approachable.
