  6. But the RAA ops manual specificallystates , quote , for the purposes of educational, RECREATIONAL and research purposes,so raa has a different set of rules then GA as it always has had.
  7. Instructors and schools have an exemption from the charter always have,i,m talking about the high end RAA flyers flying out to meet clients and the jetset boys flying the high speed sleek machines to work and back , ie ,,using the aircraft to achieve a financial gain
  8. Totally agree 88, and that is what GA is for,,,,,,,,NOT RECREATIONAL aviation, it is for RECREATION/FUN ETC not as a means of transport for work purposes.....
  9. Hello all, I have posted this thread after having a discussion with Don Ramsay about pilots using their RAA aircraft as a form of daily transport and to visit clients for work purposes etc,,,,Now after looking through all the cao,s and the RAA operations manual it would seem that anyone doing these activities with an aircraft registered and flown by RAA certificate holders are in breach of the RAA operation manual this is the first paragraph of our current ops manual outlaying the rules with which RAA pilots fly! now what is the definition of recreation ,,,To me , using your aircraft as a form of transport for work purposes is NOT RECREATION and is outside our ops manual, therefore illegal and this argument could also be used by insurance people to deny a claim etc,,,,,What is every bodys thoughts on this subject????This is the wording from our current ops manual,,,,flying for educational, RECREATIONAL,and research purposes only,,,,,flying to work and back can not BY A LONG SHOT BE DEEMED RECREATION CAN IT?? https://www.raa.asn.au/storage/5-om-71-august-2016-single-pages.pdf
