  1. Apart from the constant tapping on the altimeter, this is a pretty great video.
  2. Thanks for the link. I'm hoping to follow a career as a commercial pilot, but I have a very mild colour vision deficiency. My optometrist said that it was so minor that I shouldn't have a problem, but I'm not so sure. I have trouble with a few of the Ishihara plates. I'd hate for this to be what decides my future. The optometrist suggested that I go for a lantern test so I'll consider going for that before I make too many decisions. I'm not sure how my particular colour deficiency could affect my safety as a pilot...

  4. Not the best end to the flight, but a pretty impressive effort anyhow! What was the record: most consecutive rolls, or the most rolls in one flight? I've heard both. My parents were at Skyrace that year, Dad often mentions this incident I wish something would replace Skyrace, 'bout time we got an Airshow!
  5. That's great to know! I was worried that I'd have do a full time course up north during the holidays to get flying. This should make things a lot easier!
  6. Cool! As you can tell from my user name, I'm not yet a pilot, but I live in Kingston. Where are you planning to do your training?
  7. Fantastic, thanks for posting! When was this flying actually done? I've only just bussed back down from the north.
  8. I too loved the book so I'm very interested in this incident and report. I also need to watch the video on it.
  9. Yay, welcome fellow Tasmanian! Are you "Wandering Foxbat" on YouTube?
  10. I would have liked to have watched this, but I was outvoted by fans of 'The Voice' :-) Was it worth watching?
