  1. Yes all those parties were so surprised that someone got in on a real popular vote of the people that they ganged together to get rid of her ,regardless of whether you agree or disagree on her policies, if those parties did the same to form policy on important problems in Australia and around the world how much would things be better. Now where is my optimistic button ?!!!!
  2. PS have read all the posts now lol and see that costs were mentioned ,old planes are going out from what i see, old cessnas etc sids checks costs etc 80000 is to much for me ,im not interested in aerobatics others obviously may be ,but then that would be another set of rules surely and i got interested in raaus for lesser costs but theres no reason why we should have less safety in this day and age. plus it must be great to fly to meet other like minded people and help promote recreational flying because of the cheaper costs and fun of doing it. one thing for sure though be careful of asking f
  3. Well I for one reckon government bodies wouldnt be much different if we were a republic or not, one good thing about 750 kg would be increase or full load for fuel and more safety ie: brs if people wanted one, I would, of course one thing I havent read here although I havent read all the posts is. Cost of aircraft and homebuilt, no good getting a heavier aircraft if it puts it out of reach of people who cant afford it or build it. 2 pob still fine and vfr.Good to read all the opinions though keeps the refinement of ideas coming.
  4. an oldie but goody ,come on bex u can do better than that:yawn:
  5. i took up and still do tai chi it certainly helped me with everything even weight loss but of course i had to cut down on what i ate and drank plus eat food that was semi respectable .am also thinking of dropping in and buying food from the local farmer stalls.cant get much fresher than that.and of course im still learning to fly so what other incentive do u need
  6. sorry i meant to type bex.apologies
  7. nah dex ..to a reporter every plane is a cessna
  8. a dispute with authorities ....cmon ?
  9. for the costs and weight penalty involved id be more than happy to have the chute in the aircraft especially if the mtow is 750 kg however they may never eventuate so i would have to plan on the 600mtow and eat more salads i suppose
  10. never know doug it may have been cant recall if they mentioned the persons name
  11. looked at it on their site what is the mtow in australia
  12. hey shags did u check up on coominya and how is your plane hunting going.fun isnt it
  13. i had a 6 month break unfortunately at 22 hours but now have started again,was once every fortnight but now has to be 1 every 4 weeks due to finances which sucks obviously ,still better than no flying at all but 1 day i will be able to increase it the thing is if you know you love it there is not much chance of stopping altogether and you just keep doing as much as you can,1 day i will meet a rich girl out there
  14. was thinking of looking at the jabiru j170 for a first probably only aircraft any comments appreciated
