  1. Sounds like you had fun. Where was your journey? cheers
  2. 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
  3. Hi Thruster 88 a quick search of the ATSB safety investigations identified a few incidents with the grob at a couple of locations. cheers
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. RIP, condolences to all who knew & loved him. Deepest sympathy to family & close friends. Fly high
  8. 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
  9. 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. 👍
  10. Thanks to those who posted both videos they are both great for learning from. If you don't get the message that this was wrong in many ways by watching either of the videos it may be time that you rested in the viewing lounge. The clear message was the glider was in the Send Help In Trouble phase of the flight with little or no situational awareness. The guidance of the rear seat passenger leaves a lot to be desired. cheers
  11. Shajen, I hope all goes well for you with the purchase of this plane. There has been a lot of good advice given here for you to take on board which I am sure you will. I also brought an aircraft sight unseen and have had no issues in the 6 years that I have had it which is just a reminder that there is also some great people in aviation who do the right thing. I was very fortunate to have an experienced and trusted person to go over the aircraft with a fine tooth comb prior to my decision to purchase it. He also has a wealth of knowledge on VANS AIRCRAFT and i
  12. I am hoping the weather is ok to fly there 👍
