    Bushcat LSA by SkyReach

    I’ll say it just one more time , the BushCat kit can be ordered ex factory including propeller, engine and a choice of around 8 instrument panels. Depending on avionics the price can be up to $90k Suggest those interested contact Errol direct at GAP rather than wasting time on this forum like I have just done

    ra aus 10- prefix. still used?

    25 prefix, early ultralight. Probably old rego or has an exemption, either way long before I started flying.

    ra aus 10- prefix. still used?

    I think this guy might be having a lend of you. Section 5.1, 10.2 in the RA tech manual states that the 2 digit prefix, hyphen then the 4 digit rego must be displayed

    RAAus to disclose member details

    And while you lot are at it, you’d better get on to your respective motoring registration authorities who disclose your information to local councils when you overstay a parking meter. Which by the way is a hell of a lot more than you’ll ever have to pay by way of landing fees

    Well said Camel. Unfortunately this thread was started with unsubstantiated rubbish and it’s escalated from there. Thank you for your first hand level headed input

    RA Aus and landing fees

    Of late many councils and shires view their airstrips as both a financial and legal liability and there are consultants out there who perpetuate that myth. Unlike a "grey nomad" a touring pilot and their passenger(s) bring little else with them apart from their wallets. As a result they tend to spend a bit more in the district than your typical terrestrial tourist. A few (not many) councils have woken up to this fact and actively encourage us to stay and spend.

    Bill you're right "we don't need to know" just so long as that department continues to exist along with the solid technical support and representation we have come to expect the RAA needs to make no announcement

    Hello people, here is where it started. I trust you don't get this far off track when flying

    Do we want off topic back?

    I'm amazed, I resurected this thread with a tongue in cheek suggestion that we cater for the wingers and hard done by members and it's now gained another life
