  1. Very well said Dieselten. I could feel the confidence building just by reading your post
  2. Welcome to the nervous pilots club, you are not alone I have the same problem, I started flying around ten years ago. I purchased my own plane but prefer to fly with another pilot or passenger. I have been on about fore or five flights of one or two hours,tho most of the time just short half hour flights to the training area and back Some times changing my mind after climb out and only doing the one circuit. I have just had a three month break from flying so I am about to try again with instructor and to There are a lot of folk that say you would never get me up in one of those things, or if they ever did never ever want to do it again Us nervous pilots are some who are in-between
  3. shafs64 Hmm I wonder if we can find a nervous pilots club. or maybe I should say join the club. You are not alone I have had the same problem since I started flying 10 years ago Almost to the point that I will not go up without company preferably of another pilot. And even then I somehow get out of my comfort zone. some times only doing one circuit and wanting to come back down I have just had three months from flying for different reasons and am about to get back into it with a bit of a refresher course
  4. Methinks being this time of the year, we will be having some pretty hot days for the trip, early starts should give us a 4 hour trip, with a long lunch and afternoon tea, then maybe a couple of hours flying late afternoon before sunset
  5. Thanks Phil I have just contacted Jake, he has got me on the right track Cheers Dave
  6. I am in the course of purchasing a new Tecnam Eaglet, and I am considering in having a I pad mounted in or on the dash with Ozrunways program. Also thinking of having autopilot can any one tell me if they would be compatible. A few have mentioned that a Trutrak Autopilot would be most suitable in a LSA

  8. I would like one how do I order it
  9. Whyalla isnt in Darwin its in SA
  10. As stated my friend is flying my Tecnam to Whyalla She has no ASIC and wants to stay leagle without having to pay a fine no one is flying with her with an ASIC so an alternitive airstrip is required in reasonable proximity to Whyalla
  11. I have a friend who intends to fly my Tecnam toWhyalla in SAthis coming weekend Problem she has no ASIC and cannot land at Whyalla Airport can anyone suggest a suitable landing strip in the vicinity

  13. In trying to get my head around in what went wrong. I believe that the pilot and passenger had just departed an airfield at Rowland flat. So I imagine they would have been on climb out and if facing the hi ground they would have had to do a climbing turn at around 500 ft being a very cloudy and fogy morning and have found themselves in cloud and unable to put the nose down. I am terrified just thinking of this
