  1. also, I think he has a handheld radio on him, as you can see that his headset is attached still and flapping around when he bails out. 121.5 would have put him in contact with an overflying aircraft easy enough ( I saw at least one contrail high overhead when he was on the ground )
  2. The youtuber, as far as i can tell, has simply made it up, in an effort to garner views... there is no adsb data available for todays flight from what I can tell. The last adsb data available for WMM (that i can find) is from the 17/10. In saying that, its possible, although i'm not sure if it is the done thing, that the ATSB has contacted the many adsb sites and requested the data to be purged after the fact. Regardless, it's very poor form of the youtuber to put out a simulation on the day of this happening!
  3. Yep, RPL, class 2 medical (or greater) and Controlled Airspace, controlled aerodrome and navigation endorsements, you can fly day VFR with a full plane up to 1500kgs mtow. You can also obtain flight activity endorsements such as formation. Aero's I have not looked into for RPL, but design features such as MPPC and RG are also available. RATINGS (NVFR, IFR etc) are not available to RPL holders

  5. afaik, rotax don't have a magneto to generate the power to create a spark (like a traditional aircraft engine al la Lyc/conti etc), they have a coil. The coil needs power from battery/alternator/generator to send to plug to make said spark.
  6. I'm confused at the QNH call outs of 120.9 and 127.05?
  7. Time Left: 25 days and 23 hours

  8. Its not “ageism” is just the facts. Most any police/atsb/ntsb or any other acronym organisation reports in this standard way ”An (insert age) (insert place of residence) (insert gender/s) died/was injured as a result of a (insert vehicle type) crash, at (insert place and time)”
  9. I had heard that all new Tx have to be Mode-S, havent heard mandating ADSB for any VFR aircraft... source please?
  10. Why? because I called someone out for being a rude inconsiderate idiot?
