    Write yourself a few phrases that you will use regularly from taxi, take off, departure and arrival, practice them regularly and it will become second nature. If you have an apple iPad or phone get the app live ATC and listen to aircraft at different airports, after a while you will g3t confident don’t give up just practice when you get an opportunity

    Birdsville Again

    West to East went quickly coming back it was a bit bumpy for a while so we climbed up to avoid the bumps and the headwind hit us, all in all it was a great trip very enjoyable

    Hi JG, I was also in YBDV, I flew in Thursday & left Monday. It was a very windy day for arrival on Thursday with a strong X-Wind blowing on our arrival. We tracked from Bindoon (Perth) to Kalgoorlie-Forrest -William Creek -Birdsville, coming back we went direct to Coober Peedy - Forrest-Kalgoorlie-Albany, West to East great tailwinds at 9,500 around 35-40kts. Cheers

    OzRunways as Nav Student?

    I use both paper & Oz Runways on my IPad. My back ups are GPS Garmin 196 & OzRunways on my phone. I have flown from Albany WA to Kununurra in the Kimberley & return with no issues or the need to seek a redundancy as a back up. Now there is a lot of “tiger country” in between those destinations, on any trip I do not use one source as the be all or end all. They are all just tools that I have in my kit. I have also experienced turbulence, bad weather and the need to divert, my own experience has been that “I” find it easier to use my IPad and goto on my GPS then read a paper map while bouncing around. This has been “my” experience I am not saying that it is a one size fits all it has just been what has worked for ME. So in summary we are all different and all fly different aircraft with different forms of navigation and have varying levels of flight experience both local and extended journeys. Cheers
