    What`s Happening???

    Happy Birthday for Tuesday Frank! North QLD is gods own country Being a Mexican from down South I only get to visit once or twice a year! Hope the floods don't give you too much grief. I've just got home from a fire on our farm ( small not much damage ) That's what you love about OZ , floods one day fires the next, Happy New Year!
  4. I'd like to thank everyone on Recreational Flying for a stimulating informative year! A big thanks to Ian and Administrators for all your hard work allowing new pilots or old to have the chance to learn from each other. May you all have a healthy and happy year ahead. To all those that have lost a loved one involved in aviation, stay strong as they were doing what they loved! Merry Xmax all the best, Butch.

    If your negligent just pay some wanker Lawyer thousands of dollars to represent you and your off! SSSSSSSimple ! Only joking ! I pay thousands of dollars for insurance every year. My public liability insurance company will only pay if I'm not proven negligent, if I'm negligent they don't have to pay up. What's the point of insurance ?

    Here we go again

    It's all fun Cookie ! I miss being under instruction.....I found it quite fulfilling learning a new skill every lesson. Good luck and enjoy!
  7. Hi all, Does anyone fly or own a Rans S6 Coyote? I'm looking around to buy my first aircraft and they seem to be reasonably priced, get good reviews on the internet and are easy to fly for a lower hours pilot. Most are kit built -19 rego, any concerns about someone else's build? I know nothing about fabric covered aircraft, are there any draw backs compared to metal? thanks in advance, cheers and Merry Xmas to all !

    Rans Coyote S6, info please.

    Hi Shane, just got in from work..1600hrs thanks for the offer. Hope you get in a few laps, I will have to fly up to Echuca on a weekend and catch up, cheers.

    Rans Coyote S6, info please.

    Sounds like a great trip KC. Most Rans aircraft seem like they are user friendly to build and short build time. Good luck ......enjoy! cheers Butch.

    Rans Coyote S6, info please.

    Hi Shane' I live in Heathcote and fly out of Bendigo. I was interested in the plane you purchased when I saw it online but didn't go on with it. Changed my mind about buying a fabric covered plane. You have got a good buy as it's like a new aircraft and have since found out being fabric is no problem. Might see you around in Bendigo or Echuca, I will keep an eye out...would love to come for a ride, thanks Butch

    New Federal Cabinet

    A new label is better than the alternative marmalade where the recipe is decided by unions, cooked by an ex recipe writer and advertised cheap. When you pay for it at the register it turns out to be, expensive, a waste of money and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
  12. Agree Kaz, I fly out of YBDG and have heard a few local pilots whingeing about your landing fees. You put on a great lunch and are a friendly bunch! Hope we don't end up like you guys at Bendigo! Part of the attraction of flying to country airports are most are free and friendly....tell that to our local councils.

    Getting licence HOURS?

    I agree, learning something new every lesson is great! When you finally achieve your licence you will miss the challenge of having to learn something new. You will also realize how much more you need to learn!
  14. Sorry mate. Took it the wrong way ! Just think it's pointless...you either take the risk or you don't. cheers
  15. I'm not trolling....If you want to fly across Bass Straight safely buy a bloody JET. I wouldn't fly across in a single engine Aircraft as long as my freckle points South. Why ask the question if you don't have the money to purchase an Aircraft fit for the job and if not aren't prepared to take the risk in a singe engine Aircraft ?
  16. I can't believe this crap thread is still going!
  17. Yerrrrr right ! How much of your 20 acres have you got agisted? Maybe you might have room for my 3,500 sheep that I'm hand feeding? You also forgot to tell us the names of the stud sheep you sold ! Barbarra, Ben, Billy ........... Wish I'd talked to you last September. I could have just sold the lot! Then I wouldn't have been like all the other dumb farmers in our area and spent thousands of dollars trying to keep our breeding stock alive. Why worry about the last 25 years of hard work, breeding and planning to achieve the prime flock we now run ? Jesssss I'm dumb!

    Back using Xenforo v1

    Interesting how quick you adapt to new situations......I'm having trouble getting around the old format after using the new V2. Thanks Ian....I don't care what format the sites in you do a great job.

    Wing Walking Experience Advice

    I wish my first Wife had wanted to Wing Walk..........I would have gladly paid someone to let her do it ! Would have been cheaper than my Lawyer!
  21. Where do you look to find out info on current registered Australian "19" aircraft ? Looked on RAA and CASA website's and could only find VH registrations, Thanks.
  22. Thanks crashley, looking at a 19 reg aircraft for sale and wanted to check rego matched the owners name.
