    Frosty Flying

    g day cap, loved it
  3. Hi Nev, we all fly raa registered aircraft without a licence . The polite did have an raa certificate. My understanding is that as a raa certificate holder you breach any aviation rule or fly an aircraft that is not airworthy then you lose your privledge to fly under the exception that allows the raa certificate. So the fact that he drank even one mouthful and flys this renders his certificate invalid. I understand any fault in your aircraft can have the same result. maybe a fuel gauge doesn't read correctly or door latch is lose or maybe a bald tyre etc .This is how he was charged with flying without a licence. If the drinking charge is dropped because it can't be proven then the flying without a licence will be dropped as well because one is the result of the other.
  4. Hi SD, I agree totally with what you have said with the exemption of cta. Don't for a minute think that things will be made simpler with these changes because they won't. Don't you think we'd be better to accept and keep what we have now because all we need do is get the training at our cost and away we go. can't get any simpler than that The costs are far more that what you have stated. I would like to know how much raa have spent on this item alone.
  5. Hi SD, you have what everybody else can have if they want. So why don't they go and get it rather than try to change things at great cost and to achieve the very same thing they can have now. Plus the additional rules and regs that will be added will affect all raa.
  6. I can only guess the anwser, maybe they don't know that if they get cta through they will be required to meet all ga standards plus some more to fly raa rego'd planes in to cta. I think it would be easier to get your ga ticket and buy an raa rego'd plane that mets requirements and away you go. This of course you can do now and away you go. How could it be better or cheaper to change. Please explain to me the possible gain by changing. I'm prepared to be convinced.
  7. We do have two distinct groups 1. Raa 2. Ga. Why for the love of god do we want ti fiddle with it.
  8. The costs are made up in staff hrs spent, fees, legal issues, drafting etc. The cost I would suggest is tens of thousands if not more.
  9. A new try but we see through your trick to control the out come
  10. It's interesting how a bit of competition from a possible competitor makes them think they need to do something the members want. Now might be the time to wind in the thumb screws for other things the members want.
  11. Hi Tim, I have a engine mount for an E81 to go into an zenith 701 might be the same or similar enough to alter.
  12. Best idea I have heard all year and the best site to use to promote and develope it as well.
  13. I like it as it is. Perfect you won't get any better
