  1. And another one today with another 2 deceased. Very sad day. RIP... Two men have died after another light aircraft crash in NSW on Wednesday. Emergency services were called to a property on the Silver City Highway, about 50 kilometres north of Wentworth, near the Murray River, after reports of a light aircraft crash about 3.30pm.

  2. GAF’s have been appearing in CPL Exams for about 2 weeks now No one has reported any in RAA RPL or PPL yet, I have a few members sitting this week and next. I have added them throughout my pilot practice exams website There is a great guide on the bom site mentioned above, however it is now version 1.2 You still need to know all the how to decode info as previously on an arfor The biggest difference is there may be questions which have a flight track across a gpwt chart for you to estimate winds between layers by reading of the gpwt or the table similar to shown in Appendix F on the user guide. Head to www.bom.gov.au/GAF/index.shtml Watch the video then download the GAF Used Guide pdf
  3. Cessna 310, Very sad and a very well known local and his partner. RIP guys.
  4. I suspect crosswind or late upwind AFATO as they almost made it back...
  5. Bruce Im a bit the same flexibility wise... they did ask me to bend over and touch my toes, but i strongly suspect that was to see if I had a functioning back or vertigo issues
  6. Just fly once or twice a year with an instructor, dont, do a lesson, just get them to observe and rescue
  7. Deb a few others will chip in, but props are done up very tight, they don't settle in..... if they are out, they stay out...
  8. Actually Yenn I was saying exactly what you are... I was implying that we shouldn't be making stuff up. We need to follow the same protocol even if it is flawed. "All of us following the same flawed protocols" is far safer than "everyone thinking they know better" I have seen this same debate raging in several groups even up until today... its ridiculous how unclear it is...
  9. Very sad... This article shows a wierd takeoff, may have been trying to get back to runway. Also shows wreckage soz, the links playing up... Go to google news and the Australian article
  10. Yeh sorry didnt get any pics, i was too engaged listening.., next time i will get some thats for sure...maybe even some videos
  11. Wow, had such an awesome meeting today. Went down to show Ole from aircraftkits dot com dot au the ins and outs of his new website and got the grand tour of his aircraft in his Taree hanger. The guy is amazing what he is doing there in such a small space. The finish quality has to be seen to be believed and when he was explaining all the little design details of his suspension, tyre sizes, wings, ailerons it was inspiring. He has literally put in thousands of hours testing various wings, wings with and without slats, all the thicknesses, various Ailerons and Flaperons... The guy is a walking encyclopedia of aerodynamics and aircraft design. . Everything has a story of intricate detail about why its the perfect part ...my jaw is still on the ground. I got to see 3 Hornets and the Flamingo up close...each Hornet I saw is custom designed to the specs of the owner..with very different aerodynamics and landing gear, the rear cargo area is insane and holds around 40kg... I will stop now...
  12. PPL is basically RPL +Navigation ...If you look at the MOS there is little diff except Nav Part 61 Manual of Standards Instrument 2014
  13. Since posting my comment the earpieces have suddenly degraded, but everything else is A1
  14. Victor 1 under the approach to Sydney might be up fr review too?
