  1. Early morning is good. Temps hitting mid 30s in Broome this week so hotter inland. Fitzroy Crossing 39 tomorrow.
  2. An example of a CPL who entered foul weather conditions that he knew about beforehand and took his passenger with him.

  5. Sorry Turbs but strongly disagree with your generalised statement. Many CPLs have indeed undergone significant extra training and accumulated considerable experience, including in decision-making. But a number haven’t and we read about the consequences. There are also many PPLs, including a few former RPT captains, who have accumulated a lot of the necessary. I likewise accept there is a probably larger number which hasn’t. I think the correct marker for Angel Flight is a sufficient level of training and experience, utilised in a suitably equipped aircraft. The licence doesn’t make the pilot.

    Grob G 109

    The 109 was used extensively for a number of years by the BOM to take weather related measurements http://www.airborneresearch.com.au/pdf/2000 Report Final.pdf lovely to fly...did a few hours in one at Kingaroy many years ago.

  10. Yes but everything is bigger in WA! 🤭
  11. An incredible ending. He had previously been in a 172 but apparently had never conducted a landing. He was uncertain about most of the basics and his radio usage gives a good idea of his novice status. hope it’s a happy ending for all including the instructor who fell ill.
  12. Two lovely birds arrived together...
  13. My mate on Minnie Creek had quite a large hangar for his Aircraft and the Centre trusses were bowed upwards. He commented on this to the former owner who told him a cock-eyed Bob had come through and his previous C172 made a number of attempts to take off inside it. the thermals are big north of the 23rd!
  14. Never mind mate...some people can’t see the wood for the trees, eh?
