  1. At least the new board member flies a weight shift so that could be a good thing for the lower end of the membership. I mean in numbers not in Status. We now, at long last have someone to lobby on our behalf.
  2. ASRA Investigators on camera in this video confirming it was the model that was grounded. Very sad for all concerned. https://www.9news.com.au/2019/02/08/21/26/wa-gyrocopter-crash-robert-james-waughman-aircraft-should-not-have-been-flying
  3. They can't agree? i.e. fractured = split dynamic = may be No.4 i.e. they were very loud in their differences? dynamic [dʌɪˈnamɪk] ADJECTIVE (of a process or system) characterized by constant change, activity, or progress.

  4. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone Happy to hear you found your teeth now you can enjoy your Christmas dinner in style
  5. So what was the point of deleting/changing the online magazine? This is the third time RAAus has had to backtrack recently. What’s next?
  6. Heard the Airpark is not going ahead as the Council did not have permission to sell the land? The land outside has been given over to RVs and is time restricted. Not free as they have to pay the Football club. No camping allowed as far as I am aware. Not allowed under wing, not allowed outside either. Looks like Hervey Bay is the better option as ERSA (November 2018) states Hervey Bay is free for Recreational Flyers but not Maryborough . Parking fees and landing fees will restrict future events. The Roulettes was a great success by all accounts with plenty of parking but that was before the caravan park and once the Aviation museum goes up there will be less land outside for carparking.
  7. Have you tried the L2 list in the members area of RAAus website? There are quite a few listed for Qld. Could be worth a try. Assuming you can’t or don’t want to do your own maintenance. Might help to list what you are after, engine servicing 100hr or 200hr? Or airframe too?
  8. Part 200 of the CASRs gives exemptions to all RA-Aus aircraft from CASR’s but you are right in that all conditions of the exemptions have to be included in the RAAus manuals (Ops and Tech)
  9. I agree. It is a shame this photo appeared in the Sport Pilot magazine. Also, no photos at all of Matt Hall, and yet he was there, meeting and greeting people on the fence as well as doing a good job in the Air Show. There were many other photos that could have been used. Unfortunately the mag used the above to 'promote' the event. Strangely most of the photos and articles were form the editor this month. Hopefully that will change in the future editions.
  10. Not many members bothered to vote though. Far less than 10%
  11. Interesting comparison in this months Sport Pilot magazine with both AirVenures mentioned in separate articles. Compare the two photos used: Aus AirVenture on the left was taken on the Saturday and of course the famous USA AirVenture taken from much higher, otherwise you would not get it all in.
  12. Thanks Jaba-who. I was just wondering if it was another Trike 912-XT with an Arrow wing. I guess we will wait for a report to come in for further details .
  13. I thought it was still listed as a Not For Profit but I could be wrong
  14. This was also confirmed at the PDP by CEO when asked that particular question
