  1. Sorry for the delay in getting back here I've been away in a Searey flying to Cairns and looking after a newborn so life is busy! Flights will be $100 for a 15 minute scenic flight. The aircraft will be arriving Friday afternoon for a couple of training session and then we will be set up from 9am or maybe a bit earlier on Saturday morning for scenic flights. I'll either be manning the umbrella and dock or if they are nice to flying the thing! Adam
  2. 182 is a better aircraft full fuel and full seats not a problem but more $$ so depends on what you want to carry and how much $$ you have!
  3. Hy guys, Ill be there for all three days on the Saturday ill be fairly busy (I hope) with scenic flights in the beaver so come say hello. Adam
  4. They are still there. Two Beavers and the Van, I was down there only a month ago doing some flying. A little quiter but still doing a fair amount. The beaver in Hobart is an ex Sydney Seaplanes aicraft I was lucky enough to deliver and train the owners. Adam
  5. Hello, just wondering if the Vison 600 sold? Adam
  6. Hello, I used to own a glass house just wondering what parts he has?
  7. They run 6 days a week from Cairns give the office a call. Saturdays I think give the best views but Wednesday and Friday cover the most distance although 6 hours flight time in the back of a Caravan does get a little overbearing in the wet season heat!
  8. Check out West Wing Aviation they do the mail runs around the tip and will take passengers along for the day. Not sure how much but it goes 6 days a week and to different places each day.
  9. The only problem and dangar for using the short runway is an EFATO. If he used the long runway he could have landed straight ahead on the remaining runway until he was high enough for a turn back where as off the short runway he would be swimming until he is at about 700'. 849m is heaps for the PC12.
  10. Flying floats is the most fun I have had flying - I've flown variouse ultralights, G.A., Aerobatics, Formation and a bit of low level and nothing compares to landing on a calm water surface, pulling up to a beach and getting out for a swim. Its a must try as far as I'm concerened for everyone!

    Hey Tex where is this? I used to fly KBJ years ago just after it was restored.
  12. My old 582 on a Thruster had the high stack radiators and in the warm qld temps would still reach up toward the high side on thr ground or low level but once in the cruise it would settle down. Remeber airspeed cools things down a lot quicker than reducing power so its better to level off low and cool it off and then keep climbing to you higher cruise height. Thats my 25 cents worth so now you have 50 cents!
