    Polluting Aircraft

    I,m by no means any sort of expert on this subject, but for my two(sense) worth it seems to me that most are almost completley missing the issue, (as in being in a forest but can,t find a stick) as already correctly stated jet engine efficency has vastly improved over the last 50 years espessially in power output and emissions control, but does anyone consider why this is the case overall, in both nature and engineering you still don,t get something for nothing, the amount of oxygen required to burn that fuel and produce that power is exponentially a much more serious problem that any form of polution generated by it. As a complete layperson In the eighties, as now, it was once simlpy explained to me by a very savvy pilot, that if we could view oxygen usage by high altitude jet engines in the same way we can view the contrails they make, the (skytubes) for each would be hundreds of times bigger for each engine than the contrails themselves. But then again I,m just a igorant storch pilot pickin on me tablet. Cheers hargraves

    I kid you not

    All i will add to this important topic is that I chose to travel, by road for 2hrs each way, passing probably half a dozen flight schools to the persons,school and aircraft that I choose to train me (J3 cub) because I wanted profesional training only. No cowboys for me thanks. Cheers hargraves

    Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder?

    Look no further than the panavia tornado if you want to see how multination built combat aircraft turn out, a good multi role aircraft for sure but exceptional and standout not, in some engagements royal marines in Afghanistan preferranced american close air support for its accuracy over the RAF tornados.

    Low-Life, Thief!

    I,d be very suspicious that this is a specificly targeted theft from someone with a commercial interest and intent due to the technical nature of the stolen goods, in any event I wish him or them bad health and many accidents for the future, mongrels all. Cheers Hargraves

    Another Historical tale of Valour.

    Another Historical tale of Valour.

    I,m sure your right about that Phil in all theaters as well, My brother has just returned from a Mediterranean holliday and sent a photo of a plaque monument from Crete dedicated to the troops that defended against the paratroopers that invaded it. In one particular battle a maroi trooper stood up from their prepaired defensive positions on sighting the enemy advancing and gave them a full hakka inspiring the aussie and kiwis defenders to leave their positions and charge on mass driving the enemy back. I recon their all bloody heros myself eh. I will try and post the emai photo of the plaque if i can, having never posted an email pic befor, cheers Phil Mick

    grab a bargain GT500 $10k

    I,d buy a 500 ahead of any other rag and tube equivalent aircraft, but i,d be a little wary of the 582 not being turned over or runup for so long a period, two srokes love being used most eh. Still be good buy i think. Cheers

    Dawn Patrol

    G,day Phil Cecil Lewis is without a dought a genuine hero of incredible valour, who could see and view the total futility of it all but did his best anyway. All those mentioned are excellent reading as well, cheers Hargraves

    Where to begin...

    Welcom fly adventure, re aircraft types the main point to remember for our aircraft category at present is one pax or 80-90 kg of luggage. Not both. For touring our country this is a Major disadvantage that either means you need lots of money or be prepared to (very) rough it. Soake up all the training and information you can eh. Cheers and good luck, Hargraves
