  3. The AirVenture at Oshkosh, WI, USA is having it’s 50th Anniversary this year. We have booked a house which is a 13 minute walk away from the Hilton Garden Inn’s entrance to the venue, where you catch the free ‘internal’ buses. We only need one room, so have two queen bedrooms and a room with two single (bunk beds) available for between 20th – 30th July. AirVenture runs from between Sunday 21st to Sunday 28th July. The cost will be per room and in Australia dollars. Shared kitchen and bathroom but otherwise a private house, near restaurants and shopping. Do your own thing, just need to book your airfares and let us know when you are arriving at the accommodation. The owners can supply up to 3 keys for the property. AirBnB rules apply, i.e. no parties or loud noises to upset neighbours etc. The house has already been paid for, so no refunds. First come, first in. PM me for further details if interested. We have been several times to AirVenture so can help with directions etc. Kev

  5. Sorry Mark. The Gympie course is full (subject to confirmations). I have sent you a PM
  6. The courses cover maintenance on Rotax 2-stroke and 4-stroke (including the 912 ULS)
  7. Hi Guys I appreciate the interest in the courses I am running, but please be aware they are Weightshift Microlight/Rotax maintenance courses, although the majority of the material would be of interest to 3-axis owners. I would suggest you contact your RAA Technical Manager to see what is coming up next year with regards to courses run directly by and through the RAA. Darren has attended one of my courses, so he would be able to tell you directly whether he thinks it worthwhile for you to attend one or, as a 3-axis owner whether he has something more relevant coming up. After talking with him, if you are still interested in coming to one of my courses, that is not a problem at all. They are open to all, no matter what you fly. Send me an email and I will put you on our waiting list to be contacted when we run one in your area. We don’t have many venues available at the moment so it depends upon where you reside as to how quickly they come up. Hope this helps. Kev MacNally HGFA WM Technical Officer [email protected]

    Len, sorry for the delay, have only just spotted your question. I bought my Quik from the UK factory, who arranged the shipping through AFI UK ltd (Manchester Airport). We then used Bollinger Shipping Agency to collect from customs in Sydney. All went well apart from the Airline (Etihad) offloading my trike in the Middle East for three days without telling me. Hope this helps. Kev

    Hello Kev, A long time ago (March 2008 to be precise) You answered a thread that I started regarding importing weighshift microlights to Australia Would you mind giving me your experience with this and who you used to ship the aircraft over from the UK best regards Len Strydom
  10. FYI, all Rotax engines are cleared for use with fuel containing up to 10% ethanol. However this does not necessarilly apply to the aircraft fuel system. The ethanol will combine with any water in the tank and come out of solution, thereby lowering the octane value of the fuel. If you are using the minimum octane fuel for your aircraft, then this process will reduce the octane value to below min requirements and you would be well advised to drain the fuel tank. Safe flying Kev
  11. No, just the above venue in Victoria. He's over here visiting his Sister and has agreed to give a talk. We're travelling down from QLD and looking forward to meeting him. Kev
  12. Sorry to butt in here, but where do you get the 600hrs/750hrs from. AFAIK, TBO on a 582 is still 300hrs. Plus 50 per cent equals 450hrs. Or am I missing something?
  13. Johnm 912 carb sockets should be replaced at 5 yr/500hr iaw Rotax Time Limits.
  14. From the Southern Microlight Club inc To any and all keen aviators - Microlights, gyrocopters, ultra lights. A special event will be held by the southern microlight club on Tuesday the 26 February at the Manhattan hotel in Ringwood. It is on the corner of Canterbury rd and Heatherdale rd. There is a bistro for tea at 6:00 pm followed by our speaker at 7:30 pm. It may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Brian Milton, the first guy to fly around the world in a microlight. This guy is a world renown speaker ! As well as being an eccentric Englishman ! The cost of the evening is $20.00 and $22.00 for the meal which is an all you can eat affair, we need bookings to say how many are coming for catering and seating in the bistro area. Please email our club secretary. [email protected]
