  1. Welcome Anthony, you will find this forum very informative. cheers
  2. I stopped there last year on my way to the Birdsville Races. Friendly staff who couldn’t do enough for you. The only hassle as no Telstra service, had to buy an Optus SIM card.

  4. Hi Geoff RV7, when you say you are just stretching your wings do you mean your instructor is about to put you through some cross country training or have you already completed all of your training? i have an RV7A and it is a great cross country aircraft. Plenty of speed, plenty of range & a pleasure to fly. cheers
  5. All the best for the build 👍 hope the drought doesn’t arrive before you finish. cheers
  6. Welcome Rob, I found that it was either a time or money thing. You either had the time & not the money, or you had the money & not the time. I hope it works for you as it is a great adventure & feeling of freedom ?
  7. Hi L & D & welcome to the forum which I am sure you will enjoy. Looks like you have been around aviation for a while and I bet have seem some changes and not just the cost of flying. You mentioned you would like “Australia to really step up to the table and embrace aviation“ we always hear about problems in every day life but not enough solutions. Have you got a topic to kick off some discussion on how we go about doing just that. Look forward to hearing more of your thoughts. Cheers
  8. Welcome back Marc, Sounds like your ready to get your wings again & do some exploring. Good luck with your training. Cheers
  9. A great milestone Nev, well done on your contribution to aviation. Cheers
  10. At the back of the hangar in William Creek as it was very windy.
  11. Hi Bruce, I did Lake Eyre last year on my way to the Birdsville Races. It was dry then so no comparison to what it would look like know. We stayed a William Creek which is a great one stop shop, fuel food and accommodation. The staff were all great and were very helpful. It is a good bitumen strip with a dirt cross strip that does not show in ERSA as it does meet standards. But I telephoned ahead to check strip condition/fuel availability and winds and were given a very accurate report. The only downside to that part of the world is communication, unless you have Optus as that is the only coverage there apart from sat. Phones. Wrightsair will happily assist you but I preferred to download NAIPS myself so I had to buy a SIM card with Optus. Not expensive I think it was only $10 and I was up and communicating again. Hope this is of some help let me know if I can provide anything else to assist. Cheers
  12. I think that all of the posts have been valuable with providing explanations for each comment. The only point that I would like to add is that most of these conversations have been based on each aircraft having and correctly using a radio. Whilst the radio is a great tool it is not compulsory at all airports in Australia, don’t rely on radio calls alone, see and avoid is the best tool that you can have. If you are not comfortable with what is happening at the time make adjustments to your flight so that you are comfortable. Better to arrive late than “dead on time” Use time on the ground when you can’t be in the air to think about these scenarios so if you ever need it you have already thought about it. Cheers
  13. This topic raises a few questions was it referring to airframe icing? was it referring to carby icing? here is the definition I found which provided the answer “ moisture “ Icing conditions exist when the air contains droplets of supercooled liquid water; icing conditions are characterized quantitatively by the average droplet size, the liquid water content and the air temperature Cheers
