  1. Anyone been to the USA on holiday and done a checkout and rented a plane with a PPL, and had a travel insurance policy from Australia cover you? I am not able to find anything on offer that allows it. They all specifically exclude anything with a motor and some call out any aircraft that isn't RPT with you as a passenger.
  2. That was a very good breakfast. Heaps of people and airplanes and a few helicopters. Quite a few biplanes and warbirds. I liked how they served breakfast by number so everyone got a fair share. Service was fast too. Would definitely go back. At only $10 it was very good.
  3. Who’s going? I’m heading over from Redcliffe in a C172.
  4. I stopped at Chinchilla and the RSL sent a courtesy van to fetch us. Good steak.
  5. News.com.au says single pilot killed unfortunately.

  7. Jaba-who, I drove last time. Lots of parking and we walked past the museum and to the gate, a few minutes only. You need to pay for parking, I think it was $5 a day.
  8. It's from RFC at Gympie. Not part of the Redcliffe Aeroclub.
  9. I used the old books, was fine. Redcliffe Aeroclub can do it as well.
  10. What airport are you closed to? I used Aero Dynamic Flight Academy at Caboolture.
  11. It took me about 3 hours for RPL, then about 3 trips to controlled airspace and I think 3 navs. Was easily 20 hours but I benefited from it, I was slacker in my skills than I realised.
  12. Does anyone know of a G1000 sim, just for teaching yourself the G1000? Ideally a cheap one :)
  13. Just saw a post on Facebook that the airshow is cancelled as the major sponsor has pulled out.
