    Buying a sportstar

    I have owned my Sportstar Plus now for 4 years, it truly is a very nice aircraft to fly and train in, it has it's little issues like the toe brakes are not so good and the crosswind abilities are lower than most but you learn to overcome these and work with them, you just need to know the aircraft capabilities like any other LSA type aircraft. I like the 118lt of useable fuel for cruising, it will stay up in the air longer than me, if you get my drift, and it has good shoulder room and the seats are ok, sometimes I bring a cushion for the long flights, and now that I have had the prop adjusted for cruise she will cruise at 105-110 on a quiet day, there are a few of the composite LSA aircraft that cruise faster of course. All in all I love my Sportstar and I really enjoy flying her, so if you can find one for the right price I would recommend Sportstar that is for sure.. David

    Watts Bridge breakfast on Sunday

    Hi All, Sorry I am bit late to report, we ended up going to the Wondai breakfast where there were approx 20 aircraft, the airfield looked a treat, the boys out there have done a great job maintaining the place. The breakfast itself was very good, maybe not quite as good as Watts Bridge but very nice just the same and the people there are very friendly and easy to talk to, which is very nice. All in all I would highly recommend the breakfast and the facilities and I will definitely go to the next one.. 😀

    L2 Mechanic

    Hi All, I am posting this out of frustration as I am getting sick and tired of getting ripped off on the servicing of my Sportstar aircraft by GA type businesses around the Brisbane region, I would like to ask if anyone knows of a current or semi retired L2 or better that can help me do the servicing of my LSA aircraft for a reasonable price, I don't mind if it is on a weekend. I am happy to fly the aircraft to any of the nearby airfields around the Caboolture region so that the L2 doesn't have to travel far and I am happy to help doing the grunt type jobs as well as learn a little more. I am also happy to pay a negotiated hourly rate and I can supply the parts if required so all he or she needs to do is the labour and fill out the paperwork in my log books and give me maintenance release. Please if anyone can help if you could just PM me with your contact details and I will call you and we can have a chat, In anticipation I thankyou. David L
