  1. Higher,faster,bigger and heavier is the Air Force philisophy - if you have time read the book Boyd the jock who developed Energy Management Theoy and you will understand the cozy relationship between the generals in the Pertgon and the builders, it will all be clear.

    AOPA and CASA

    This is the most clear example of why aviation regulation / operation / manufacturing is the mess that it is in Australia - To many organiziations barking a the regulator with some showing a partizian desire to roll a certain hen coop. The USA is successful because there is one dominant organization for the recreational pilots that supports and receives the support and respect of those representing all the other forms of aviation. RAA petty decision has just created division for some perceived advantage leaving the regulator to place it in the too hard draw. As for maintaining the current L1, how is someone with limited training and aviation experience going to maintain his 6oo kg supercharged,intercooled,retractable, constant speed aircraft - omce these aircraft entered RAA's orbit it was going to change.

    Hangars rent or buy pros and cons?

    I agree on ownership - A registered title with the lands office is the only agreement that lasts but ownership its not cheap and looked at as a long term investment.

    Rylstone Flyin it on

    For accommodation These will be on site camping and porta loos and for those opposed to camping there are a number of good hotels in town. Also there are a number of other places to sleep and both Hotels have a bistro. No47 on the opposite side of the road opens early with good coffee and breakfast. Transport on the day for a gold coin donation and the local search and rescue will have the barbecue going on the day and the following morning By the way last year was nearly a loss with no aircraft by 10:30 due to weather but it was a single trike that burst through the gloom to a standing ovation from all on the ground. In the end we had 39 aircraft and a good day regardless Gary aka Tucano rylstone hotels - Google Search
