  1. As a back up to my OzRunways, I use a Garmin Aera 500. although it is a backup I run it all the time. It is a great tool & provides peace of mind for me. It has all of the functions of many of the larger GPS and has not let me down. I have had Garmin devices for many years in boating and as a navigator in the car before the fancy smart phones hit the market. It is a cheap investment in peace of mind if you have the spare cash, if not loading OzRunways on your wife’s phone and also yours is plenty of backup also. Cheers

    Looks like the shire is not missing anyone with the fees this year
  3. Welcome Anthony, you will find this forum very informative. cheers
  4. 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.

  6. 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
  7. All the best for the build 👍 hope the drought doesn’t arrive before you finish. cheers
  8. 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 ?
  9. 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
  10. Welcome back Marc, Sounds like your ready to get your wings again & do some exploring. Good luck with your training. Cheers
  11. A great milestone Nev, well done on your contribution to aviation. Cheers
  12. At the back of the hangar in William Creek as it was very windy.
  13. 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
