  1. Some more Solo Depart & Rejoin Circuits training today, sure was a corker of a day for flying, virtually no wind, after today's effort I have now clocked up 2 hours of solo flight A snippet of today's flight, https://youtu.be/MfqXmVoZaIE
  2. Hi All, another lesson completed on Friday, it was about learning how to depart and rejoin the circuit, so Peter and I would depart from Redcliffe, head over to Beachmere then turned back towards Redcliffe Peter and I completed 2 Depart & Rejoin Circuits then we landed, Peter jumped out and then it was my turn to complete one, Solo! Brent 😀
  3. Hi All, another lesson completed on Friday at Redcliffe (YRED), weather conditions were just about perfect, so I completed my second Solo, ended up completing 3 touch n go's and 3 go-arounds, and 1 full stop! Brent 😀 Sorry, I forgot to turn on the external mic again, a snippet of my flight below,

  5. Hi All, After a hiatus of 2 months due to work and a overseas holiday, i was back at YRED for some more flying, had 2 lessons today, the first being a little jaunt up to the training area at Bribie Island for some refresher of the basics, the second flight was back at YRED for some more circuit training, had a small crosswind, but thankfully no rain, a great couple of hours flying, it was nice to back in the left seat again! Brent ? PS: almost forgot, I passed the Pre-Certificate Air Legislation Exam as well, A little snippet of the first flight,
  6. Hi All, Back at Redcliffe (YRED) for some more flying, the plan was to try and get in some more solo time, but the crosswind conditions today were a little bit tough for newbie like me so Pete had me working on how to handle the circuits with crosswind landings, had to admit, I was very knack-ed after today's effort. Brent Notam: Radio / Video Comms back up and running, here are some of my landings,
  7. Hi All, Back at Redcliffe (YRED) for some more flying, lesson today was Circuits & Emergencies, firstly we had an errand to do, we flew over to Caboolture (YCAB) to pick up a part for the school's mechanic then jump in to some circuits & emergency situations there, however the weather turned on us so we flew back to Redcliffe and finished the lesson there, as usual the lesson was a hoot, did my first short field takeoff, some simulated engine failure landings and tried my hand at some short field landings Brent Notam: I appoligize for the lack of Radio Comms, I had forget to turn the Camera's Mic setting to external, a little snippet of the flight,
  8. Second flight for the year so far, was to fly a couple of weeks ago, but the weather was not in my favor, today it was circuit work at YRED, weather was overcast and a bit windy but as usual the lesson was a hoot Brent A little snippet of the flight:
  9. Flight Hours to date: 28.6 01st Solo, Completed Oct 20, 2017 Last Flight: Jan 12, 2018 Hi All, After a year away from flight training, I was back with Fly Now @ Redcliffe last friday for my first flight 0f 2019, we headed up to the training area at Bribie to re familiarize myself with the basics and getting use to the aircraft again, Weather was a tad bit hot with some crosswinds, a great day for flying regardless, a snippet of the flight in the link below Brent
  10. Thanks for the tip, did not think of that, will try a different position for the vent next time Brent
  11. Yep, it was, Santa gave me a ANR Headset for xmas, it was magnified compared to my old set, at times Pete would tell me something and I had to ask him to repeat the question, someone needs their PTT button fixed Brent
  12. Well, what seemed like an eternity, but really just shy of 3 months since my last, I was back at YRED yesterday for my first flight for 2018, beautiful day weather wise, virtually no wind however it was extremely hot, what went wrong, take off was without flaps, transponder still on standby, thankfully as Peter stated, at least I did remember all the important bits, like flying the aircraft, lol, we headed out to the training area for some basics and get me back into the grove, despite the couple of foo ba's, it was a corker of a day and certainly reinvigorated my passion for flying again, back for another lesson in a month, cant wait! Brent
  13. "Feedback on the Clear Prop Shop" Having recently made my purchase, a ANR Headset (xmas prezzie from the missus to me), I received a call from Ian informing me that my choice was no longer available, he recommended another type which was in stock, slightly dearer, but Ian offered to cover the difference and I received the new headset a few days later, unfortunately I didn't get to have a play or looksee, bloody missus whisk it away and stashed if for Christmas Day, am liking the new Clear Prop Shop look, great customer service, thanks Ian Brent
  14. I reckon at least 5 members on the committee, especially when it comes to voting on changes etc, minimum of 3 might swing the power onto 1? Brent
