  1. There's going to a lot of changes over the next few years. All I can say is make sure you submit your feedback as per the appropriate web pages (Lowering Class E on the East Coast | Engage Airservices (airservicesaustralia.com)). Make sure your voice is heard. I promise all of these are taken seriously.
  2. Above or below A045? Ie. in towers or en-routes airspace? Also how do you mean made it difficult?
  3. So at what point did flight Safety become a subscription service? The purpose of that magazine is to educate pilots and avoid incidents. Pilots who take unnecessary risks would not be the sort of pilot to pay for a subscription to this completely negating the point. I think the increased risk in safety is worse than C over D or any other bits of rubbish we are hearing about. Thoughts?
  4. I can't comment unfortunately. Sorry. I really want to though...
  5. Cheers Derek. It's really strange there are zero pictures of them online.
  6. Hi All, I'm just updating my logbook online and adding all my flying history. While doing this I looked to see if I can find photo's of all the aircraft I have flown. I have found for all of them except two and was wondering if anyone here might have them for me. Both were Arena Aviation tomahawks being flown out of Archerfield in the late 90s. BVJ, and FLA. Many thanks, J
  7. For cfs, clearance is with bn centre at that level. Lodging a fight plan will hero immensely with getting your clearance but as always it depends on traffic. Enjoy the flight
  8. Pretty good though there are gaps in coverage, especially down low and at some aerodromes
  9. We can still see if you are on adsb, even if you are showing as a radar paint. There is a little b that appears on your label indicating we are getting an adsb signal as well
  10. RJW: lots of ifs here. i) we have radar for center from a040 and up. The tower has radar for situational awareness only, not for seperation. ii) depends on ifr, vfr, tower open ornot. Best to discuss this with your instructor. Good luck
  11. So my broker phoned all the insurers who cover this and none of them had a definition of an ultralight even though they load for them (or exclude). So after much tooing and froing we got a response from my one (and remember this doesn't go for everyones so check with your own policy) but they said that MTOW of 480kg or less is an ultralight. SDQDI: A simple email didn't do it. My broker has been showing me their emails and they are just back and forth without giving a definition. We had to escalate it right up to get the definition.
  12. Well that sucks. I believe it's about $300 for the bluetooth adaptor which makes all of this offer seem really shit.
  13. As far as us gettting it to link to a flight plan tjen yeah if your ident matches your flightid it links easily. I'll find out what the exact thing should be though
