  1. I flew over Saturday and back Sunday. Fantastic turn out - rolled the swag out under the plane and was excellent. My view from bed Sunday Morning
  2. Saturday was a fantastic day, lots of action and beaut weather! Would have been close to 15,000 people there I reckon. Not there today, but I'm sure it'll be great also, although the wind has picked up.
  3. You'll love it, my favourite country to fly over is the outback stuff. Being summer, and if you don't want to be tossed around I'd get going early... as it'll get rough and hot as the day heats up. Once you leave Emerald the Navving to Longreach is a piece of cake! Pretty much just follow the highway. Enjoy the different scenery and cattle stations you'll fly over. There's airstrips at a lot of stations if you run into dramas, or just want to drop in... buzz the strip or homestead first. Don't forget about DA with the hot climates. Check out Barky airstrip, it's huge!! (just east of
  4. Helps if you know someone there... I used to fly in there a bit, never had to much trouble with anyone but I did have some contacts which may have helped!
  5. Sorry I'm thinking of the S7 too, looks much the same!
  6. If you bounce a tail dragger a little on landing most by standers won't take a whole lot of notice... but if you bounce a tricycle on landing, eyebrows often get raised!
  7. Awesome to fly too, done a bit in one and loved it.
  8. We were so poor, I still don't make cents.
  9. It's a spectacular trip on a clear day - you'll enjoy it!
  10. G'day all! I've been a bit quiet on here lately due to a few reasons, one being that my wife and I have a new addition to our household... our daughter arrived 4 weeks ago which is pretty cool! Now I was just wondering what others thought about how soon a little bub should be air borne, or in other words, how old should they be, for it to be safe for their little bodies to handle the pressures. Also just strapping a car seat on the back seat, is that all legal? I could look up the reg's I guess, but I'm sure someone's been here before! Thanks a million!
  11. I'd be checking your muffler - muffler and carbs have to be calibrated (for want of a better word) on those two strokes.
  12. I was on a flight once from Brisy to Emerald with only 6 passengers I think it was.
  13. Where's a good place to fly in to / out of near Kangaroo Valley?
  14. That's awesome Aldo, Selwyn sure is a goer for getting stuff done! I'm hoping to fly up in my Piper Pacer (that's my new plane by the way) at the end of this month for my bro's 21st. Might see if I can come out then.
