    What`s Happening???

    Hi Frank, that was a fair hike from your place, follow the Palmerston Hwy. Used to swim in Lake Eacham in the 70's. Used to be a Cassowary there that liked apples.

    Bex I have software DOS that I run on XP which I run in Virtual Box in Windows 7. Best of both worlds. Downloads – Oracle VM VirtualBox

    Glide approach as standard practice

    Just saying. Flew Brisbane to Newcastle Jetstar A320. Joined Downwind, Height felt under 2000, Turned Base and Final in a reasonablly tight circuit. Unreal turning that close to the ground.

    Accident at Gympie

    One thing always in the back of my mind. We are taught to use the whole runway and I do in case of mechanical issues. When doing touch and go's you lose that luxury. Especially in a students case maybe touching down further down the runway (Gympie is tarmac and in hot weather). Then operating electric trim etc can take time. By the time you rotate all runway options may be gone. When I purchased an aircraft recently I initially would land, taxi back and utilize the whole runway.

    Nice Beaver video

    Yeah I saw the other thread. Last drifter that tried the crossing went for a swim.

    Nice Beaver video

    A lot of water and a lot of Tiger Country and a lot of Trust in a single engine. If the noise should stop in many locations on that video the result would not have been good.

    In flight Adjustable Prop

    Most important to reduce revs prior to changing pitch to fine so as to not over rev the engine.
