  1. I struggled a bit to identify why this story gave me such a is visceral reaction. Then I realised the policy didn't already exist and that is what got to me. Ahh, the smell of vested interests!
  2. A Boeing engineer named Mark Forkner was alleged to have intimate knowledge of the decisions made regarding MCAS. In early September 2019 he refused to hand over relevant documents or testify, citing his fifth amendment rights. Someone knows the answers
  3. ... which CASA will also ignore http://www.australianflying.com.au/latest/federal-government-to-develop-regional-aviation-policy
  4. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11-07/tensions-between-rex-airlines-dubbo-council-hit-new-highs/11682130
  5. Only one or two at the top. But that is all it takes
  6. Crystal ball says "care to play again?"
  7. So far nobody has mentioned the four rotor abomination produced by Rolls?
  8. Number of wings on prius/prii/pruises = zero. Interestingly someone is fluffing about with a hybrid cessna skymaster. The results of that will be informative

  10. VFRG was updated this year so I bought that. I also have the 2015 version
  11. Anyone who sells NGK spark can order off the catalogue. I just got a set of iridium plugs for an FZ-1 from Motor Spares for about half the quoted price of the motorcycle Stealership. You might need to wait three or five days for them to turn up, is all. Also the B8ES and BR8ES are a very common motorcycle plug
  12. They have existed for years. Mostly the same jack in the box design as used for ultralights like the Moyes Dragonfly. Yes there are zero-zero drone chutes too but they are quite expensive
  13. I agree to the first point. As to the second point, I submit that anyone with a CPL and a current instrument rating is probably already flying on someone else's coin. That is to say they already have a job flying IFR (or teaching students to do same) and are not available for Community Service Flights, as a qualification to "not having enough instrument rated pilots". I think I will throw my money in the same direction as Bruce Tuncks. Further I feel this may be a very good opportunity for Air Services Australia to waive fees for anyone doing instrument initial or currency training in support of Angel Flight (or any CSF) ... to help dilute the current stink over Air Services way. (Lemons into lemonade!)
  14. Given the roll rate I think the A380 would need to start so high up nobody on the ground would be able to see it
