Just about any aircraft will be eligible to enter, some conditions on pilot qualifications will be required. Full details on the website Entries and tickets are available now online, don't miss out and register now. https://www.australianstolchampionships.com.au Cheers Jack
  3. Thanks Dave ... very useful. Cheers Vev
  4. Nev, Yes it's the Curtiss .. it's steering fine on touch down and roll out too. Yes the tyres are slick.
  5. G'day Nev/David, Thanks for the input as always. I'm dealing with 2 ac, one a Jab I flew for a mate and was concerned with the poor ground handling... compared to the 600 + hours I have in Jabs this is the worst I have experienced and wanted to help him sort it out. I'm thinking a starting point for this one might be to set it up with a small amount of camber and no toe-in and suck it and see? Let me know if this doesn't sound like a good starting point? The other ac is an antique tail dragger with oleos which has an independent system, that is, no connection links via scissors to each side. There seems to be a significant amount of toe-in (3 deg) and is showing signs of scrubbing from taxiing, I use the grass for landings which I guess is masking any problems. This one is causing more concern, yet the guys in the US have suggested anywhere between 2-4 deg toe-in which seems like a lot ... they are saying I am within spec, albeit it doesn't feel right to me. Any thoughts? Cheers Vev
  6. All, I'm interested in learning about main wheel alignment on both tail draggers and nose wheel aircraft. I am working on two aircraft and I'm really not happy with how they are tracking and want to improve things. Is there a technical convention re set up for toe-in or toe-out and how many degrees or anything else one should consider? Keen to hear what others know or if I can be directed to any technical papers on the subject suitable for this novice? Cheers Vev

    East Sale military airspace

    G'day dsam, I'm flying through it tomorrow and was looking at it on the chart, which shows D353 1500/SFC and R358A as SFC/FL45 ... It makes sense to me from what I can see. If you split the zone how would you manage the air space over the top of D353 >1500' would that be R358F or G? Why not just leave it as R358A? Unless I'm missing something, but I feel ok with the way this is presented? Cheers Vev

  13. Just a reminder that the Tyabb Airshow "War & Peace" is on Sunday 11th March. We have a huge line up of vintage, classic, warbird and current day ADF aircraft. We even have a few, out of this world, flying surprises organised that you won't see anywhere else. Just some of the aircraft: Mustangs Boomerang Hudson Spitfire Seahawks Tojan T28's Pitts Yak and Changs Harvard Southern Knights Kittyhawk P40 Roulette display Hurricane Tiger Moths Sopwith Pup & Snipe This is just some of the line up with many more rare and exciting flying displays. Michael Smith will be there with Southern Sun, his world record breaking solo global circumnavigating flying boat. He will be able to personally tell you about his adventure. Several RAA and GA aircraft manufactures will also be displaying their latest and greatest toys. We will fly a pair of Australian built P51 Mustangs, one of which is last surviving one built and may be the first and last time you get to see it as it is now on the market and likely to be sold overseas. Take a look at the attached video. We have hundreds of unique cars, bikes and military vehicles including WW1 & 2 and Vietnam war period camps. Have a fly of our latest simulator and see how you go in IFR conditions or an emergency landing after an engine failure or land it into your favourite airport. This is a charity event where the bulk of the proceeds go back to the community. All of the pilots, owners and support staff are volunteers and have donated their time and aircraft to support the charities. This years our main beneficiaries are Riding for the Disable and the CFA which are both worthy organisations. Buy a ticket on line a fast track your entry and avoid the lines. 2018 Tyabb Air Show-Home We hope to see you all there. Jack Vevers President - Peninsula Aero Club Home - Peninsula Aero Club
