  1. Ross I read the article with great intrest. I used to fly a Texan but since then only have access to a Jabiru. Keeps you flying but not the same. I think its time to cash in the frequent flyers and go and see where these are built. Many thanks. cheers Mike
  2. Any info from pilots who own and fly the 600 low wing
  3. Thanks for that. I,m looking for one in south oz to have a look at if anyone knows of the location of one. cheers
  4. I always do my carby ice check (count to ten) after mag checking. You are already at revs required and it is easier to see the required gauge movement.!!
  5. Hows this for thought! The RAAF use checklists all the time. Doesnt matter how long you have been flying or how qualified you are on type. Take this as a point to remember. It is easier to start and set up military aircraft than most civilian so dont be discouraged using a checklist. Personally I like to use one as a backup before I fly. Checking while doing a walk around or while sitting in the cockpit and running through the checks doing a radio call. You are not time wasting and you might just pick up on a missing check that you have bypassed for a while. Hope this helps.
  6. I drive to Murray Bridge and fly ( about one hours drive) because I dont want to put up with Parafield Airport (SA) just down the hill.
  7. Wow. Bit of a storm eh! Maybe we were not supposed to read the magazine!! cheers for that
  8. I like your reasoning and you make sense but RA Aus didnt start the mud slinging. Dougs article has done nothing to assist in the division of RA Aus and GA. In fact it has split the two camps further. As a respected journalist he should know that airing your own opinion is for parties and the bar. Not for a respected national publication where the right of reply is not available. I wrote a reply and added it here if you are interested. Me, I,ll work with anyone to promote ALL the flying fraternity in Australia. Lets keep it that way. cheers australian flyer reply.pdf australian flyer repl
  9. here we go again Recently I was reading an issue of Australian Flying may-june 2010 and came across the attached article. I have included my reply (attached) as I feel we all should be nipping this type of elitist rubbish in the bud. There is enough animosity between GA and RA Aus without some one useing a national magazine to soapbox their opinions. I was always under the impression that journalists were supposed to be unbiased...... Please feel free to pass this on. australian flyer article.pdf australian flyer reply.pdf australian flyer article.pdf australian flyer reply.p

  11. Anybody have a scanned copy of the Skyfox Gazelle please?:thumb_up:
  12. Air Force pilots dont do Daily's. Thats a ground crew job. Pilots do a walk round and then jump in and fly. Makes you wonder why they have to have a degree! They carry a flight bag with checklists and pubs on all flights.. Bit of a different scenerio to us fun flyers. Still the same reasons for checklists apply.. Safety, safety, safety... happy flying:thumb_up: PS This was originally an answer to MAZDA who stated that single fighter pilots jumped in and took off without checklists. What wasnt said was that a pilot would have started and then shut down his engine or been on some sort of a
