  1. Hi All, I was fortunate enough to fly the new Cessna Citation 680 Sovereign the other day. It is equipped with the impressive Garmin G5000. I thought I'd share a photo. Cheers Owen
  2. Aircraft operations in that climate are a whole new ball game.....interesting. :-) Cheers
  3. Thanks again everyone for the support of Solo Flight. It is nudging the top three in its aviation category on Amazon for 'Best Rated' due to some glowing reviews. Thanks one and all. Cheers Owen
  4. Hi Gary, I don't think it has been. Polly Vacher attempted to reach both Poles some years back though...http://www.worldwings.org/ Cheers Owen
  5. Hi Gary, Thanks for your kind words about 'Solo Flight'. I was just 'revisiting' where I might fly to next when I saw your post. The arctic sounds interesting. :-) Thanks again, Owen
  6. Thanks for the support guys. Cheers Owen
  7. Thanks 'coljones', That's the first time I've heard that, so it's appreciated. Cheers Owen
  8. Hi All, There's been a good deal of interest in the 'Jabiru Forum' so I thought let you know here that I've released the book about my charity flight around Australia in the Jabiru J230D. It's titled 'Solo Flight' and has around 200 pictures from the trip. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HETIJJ4 Cheers Owen
  9. Hi 'jorditzu9', Thanks for your interest. 'Solo Flight' can be read on any iPad or PC. Here are the links on how to do it http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000426311 and http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000490441 'MagnetoDrop' is also correct that 'Solo Flight' became available on iTunes this week. Thanks again one and all. Cheers Owen
  10. Thanks again 'cooperplace'. The feedback is greatly appreciated. It makes the effort of putting the flight down in words and images all worthwhile. Cheers, Owen
  11. Thanks 'cooperplace'. The support of this community was great at the time of the flight and has been the same since the book was released. The flight itself was fulfilling on a number of levels. As a fundraiser for the RFDS, to promote the role and history of aviation in Australia and to meet so many wonderful people along the way. Without doubt the flight is a highlight of my 17,000 hours of flying and 49 years of living. Cheers mate, Owen
  12. Hi All, Yes, I was very fortunate to have the chance to undertake this flight. As mentioned by 'facthunter', planning was critical to the flight being both safe and timely. In fact the first few chapters discuss the planning steps that took place long before I ever got off the ground. (You can view these planning chapters for free on Amazon as they allow a 'peak' inside. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HETIJJ4 ) Cheers Owen
  13. Absolutely David. Happy New Year and all the best for 2014. Cheers Owen
  14. Thanks Nev....I certainly am. ...and all the best for 2014 to you! Cheers Owen
  15. Hi All, I've just posted a story appropriate to New Years Eve for fellow aviation lovers. http://tiny.cc/gjpx8w The image below is relevant to the tale. Happy New Year and here's to a great 2014! Cheers Owen
