  1. Terrible news. Condolences to family and friends of the two who so tragically lost their lives.
  2. Well it does seem that RAAus is not impressed with the AirServices proposal and are asking for members to email them Airservices Australia ‘Lowering of Class E on the East Coast’ proposal
  3. Some instructors will hire trikes out and there are some syndicates around to share the cost of buying. The closest to you would be Bundaberg I think so you could check with the instructor there depending on whether you are HGFA or Raa
  4. The owner is responsible for the airworthiness There was was another thread about hiring a Trike a few years ago but I can’t find it now. Used to be one for hire through the royal Newcastle aero club. Registered through HGFA at the time
  5. Some XT-582 are primary category not LSA. The Airborne manual reference I mentioned covers both XT 582 Light Sport and Primary Category Aircraft MAINTENANCE MANUAL
  6. Airbrorne manual refers owners to the Rotax documents so it would be 300 hours and 5 years for the 582: 72.00.10 Maintenance and Overhaul Other than any specific procedures specified elsewhere in this manual, detailed procedures for the maintenance and overhaul of the Rotax 582 UL engine fitted to the XT 582 aircraft can be found in the following documents: - Rotax Operator Manual for Rotax Engine Type 582 Series - Rotax Documentation CD Documentation for Rotax engines available at www.rotax-aircraft-engines.com The supplied manuals and documentation are supplement
  7. Just replying to another thread I read with interest the advert for a Trike on Australian classifieds. It says The Australian Government is set to Legislate in 2021, that Rotax 582 Aircraft Engines have their TBO hours extended out to 500 hours! At 20 hours flying a year, this means you could fly this Trike for 19 More Years before even Thinking about an overhaul. No idea what that means but I can’t see our government overriding Rotax 5 years TBO to over 19 years.
  8. I noticed the Trike is also listed on Gumtree eBay and facebook so it is possible that owners of aircraft for sale may be using other methods of advertising rather than aviation classifieds.
  9. RIP and condolences to his family and friends. Very sad to hear of another death.
  10. "he has accepted a new position in a national organisation". I wonder where he is going to.
  11. email received Friday Sport Pilot Magazine is landing in letterboxes! Keep your eye on your letterbox, because the all new Sport Pilot magazine will be in your hands shortly, if you haven't received it already! Nothing in my letterbox yet
  12. Last paragraph ...... “He and his wife, Peta, added two car seats in the back to accommodate their two favourite passengers "They really love it. They sit in the back in their car seats and have their little headsets on and hang out the window," Mr Wulff said. "We use it to bribe them quite regularly.”
