  1. It will be interesting to see the final report with the view that we can all learn from the event. I attended Rays “Irish Wake” via video streaming and the family although distressed focussed on the joy that he has brought them over the course of his life. Whilst we don’t have the final report the clear takeaway points for me are; Stay clear of cloud unless you and your aircraft is equipped to fly in it. Always have at least one out preferably more If your not sure don’t go If for some reason you end up in cloud do a 180 & get out of there &
  2. MattP, thread-slides, big and small occur regularly but rest assured the forum does provide solutions & not just problems so have a little patience. Most people place a disclosure clause with their advice but I am sure they all mean well. Happy reading cheers
  3. Oz Runways on my IPad and back up IPhone. I run a paper fuel log with used, remaining, L or R tank time tanks are switched. Before the traditionalists jump on me I am not after advice just replying to what I use. For what it’s worth some of the longer journeys I have completed include. Albany to Kununurra (Kimberley) Kununurra to Albany Bindoon to Birdsville Bindoon to Airlie Beach and return via Archerfield. To date around 260 hours of flight with no issues using these methods above. I have had my IPad overheat a couple of time
  4. Is this “thread drift” or “thread broadside” 😂 Anyone got an update on what happened to those arrested & giving aviation a bad name?
  5. Link is only any good if you subscribe
  6. Sounds like you had fun. Where was your journey? cheers
  7. A man is believed to have been killed in a horror light plane crash in the remote Great Southern region. Emergency services were called to the crash site in a paddock just off Nyabing-Pingrup Road following a distress call that was received about 2.30pm on Staurday aftternoon. It is understood the man was found trapped in the plane’s wreckage east of Katanning near Pingrup and could not be saved. He was the only person on board. Investigators will return to the crash site — about four hours south-east of Perth — this morning to try and determine the cause of the crash. The
  8. Hi Thruster 88 a quick search of the ATSB safety investigations identified a few incidents with the grob at a couple of locations. cheers
  9. F10, from what I have read on this thread there seems to be a clear acknowledgment that the system is wrong. what should be explored is, can it be fixed? Poteroo summed it up pretty well in terms of conversion and what he correctly identifies as a bad case of injustice. My advice is for you to gather the best of these posts and do something about it as although this forum is a good place to discuss/air our view points there is little that this forum can actually do about it. The next option may be to start a Go Fund Me page to raise the money to pay for t
  10. Journey complete, West Coast to East, attended the Runway (hangar) dinner and met some great people. one sole who is no longer with us (Ray) R.I.P I met in Charleville & did not get to have that catch up,drink,and chat at Airlie 🍺 looking forward to attending another dinner there as the country is spectacular.
  11. We were lucky enough to get out of perth in early April & miss the latest round of lockdowns. Our first leg was Bindoon Hill YBHY to Forrest YFRT. An overnight stay then on to Leigh Creek YLEC for the night. Our first stop there and it was great, easy refuelling, airport pick up & drop off and good clean accommodation supported by a nice meal at the tavern. The next leg took us up to Charleville YBCV to do some exploration of the town & soak up some local history. Friendly service at the airport with refuelling and plenty of tie down areas. We met a group of Rot
  12. RIP, condolences to all who knew & loved him. Deepest sympathy to family & close friends. Fly high
  13. If you are comfortable with doing it this way then why change. The fact that you asked indicates you may like a change. There is various programs that make it very easy to navigate, plan and review your flight along the path whilst giving you plenty of time to monitor your aircrafts performance & progress against what was planned. What would be a good thread drift would be to ask how many people have got into trouble using the trusted electronic flight bag V those who have got into trouble with paper navigation. Happy days
  14. I have a suggestion, don’t go into cloud unless you have an aircraft equipped to do so and you are qualified and current with flight in IMC. The only time you should be tilting your head in any direction is to read your documents that validate you and your aircraft’s documents prior to flight. Don’t listen to experts other than your instructor. 👍
