  1. Yeah I posted the wrong link! No idea how to edit/delete a post now they’ve changed the site! Haha anyway... here’s the actual link if anyone wants to watch
  2. All arguments aside, my main point was I have a habit of saying affirm in situations that really warrant a roger ?
  3. I’m a fairly new pilot, and seem to be struggling with the use of “affirm” and “roger”. I understand the meaning of both, and the context in which they SHOULD be used, but I seem to continually default to saying affirm when I really should say roger. Has anyone else had this problem? I guess it will eventually work itself out, but I thought someone might have a way they went about drumming it into their head haha. On my last flight I did it so many times it started to become comical! Here’s a short video of it
  4. Yeah the RPL conversion is pretty painless long as you have ALL the paperwork together. A couple of hours of hood time and a flight review in a VH aircraft. I haven’t done CTA yet but will be doing it soon
  5. Not sure if this is the right place for this post.. But does anyone know of any places in Australia that will install ANR kits to a currently PNR headset?
  6. I have both RAA and RPL. I am flying an RAA reg plane from the school I got my RAA cert, yes, at Jandakot.
  7. So I flew up to the Alkimos shipwreck with the intention of getting some footage of it from the air... although due to my poor camera placement I didn’t get any good shots of it hahahaha oh well an excuse to go again ;)
  8. Its been a while since I posted a video in here! Just a quick flight down to Mandurah and back along the beach. :)
  9. Yeah I fly Ra-Aus out of jandakot (class D with parallel rubway ops) and I’ve heard of guys getting told off for circuits that were even just a bit too tight (even tho ERSA says “circuit size should be as compact as practicable” for noise abatement... go figure) so I can imagine flying a circling style pattern definitely wouldn’t fly!! (Pun intended)
  10. I think you might be referring to where I learnt to fly, at Jandakot WA YPJT... the Ra-Aus school there has an exemption to operate out of the class D airspace but not the nearby class C of Perth airport YPPH
  11. Will do. I’ve watched a few videos on YouTube recorded with this system, ones where there is a specific thing about 4 feet or so away from the camera look good (like a guy hang gliding and camera is mounted on wing tip or something) but I think in a cockpit, the instrument panel will be 3D but that’s about it. You can view using the old coloured glasses or on a 3D smart tv
  12. I feel like it’s a bit of a gimmick, but has anyone used the GoPro 3D accessory at all when flying? I got given one for Christmas (oh yay) wondering if there’s even any point using it in the cockpit
  13. I used the Ra-Aus text and it was fine. Practice pilot exams site is also very good as previously mentioned
  14. I’ve been flying sportstars with the front hinged bubble canopy, yeah they get a bit toasty but they have a sliding sun shade which helps. As long as you have a few air vents it’s really not that bad. Just go higher!! Toughen up aussies ;)
  15. Rottnest Island before work: the advantage of the sun coming up so ridiculously early in summer!
  16. Thanks mate are you in our Perth Pilots group?
  17. I’d recommend recording all of your flying lessons (with audio from headsets) it’s anazing how much more information you can absorb by watching over your last lesson before you go up for the next. Helped me immensely
  18. Student solo Nav, out to Northam YNTM Last one before my RA-Aus cross country test, then converting over to RPL
  19. Was just a hypothetical question :) I experienced what Jaba-who is talking about not long ago when we flew a sportstar across from Moorabbin to Jandakot... called the number in ERSA to ask if av gas was available at an airfield we were considering as an alternate, girl on the phone was like "what on earth is av gas" haha here I was thinking I had called an airport but it was actually the council chambers.
  20. Yeah me and a mate are planning to fly in, its on the calendar
