  1. Cheers Derek. It's really strange there are zero pictures of them online.
  2. 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

  4. 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
  5. Pretty good though there are gaps in coverage, especially down low and at some aerodromes
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Well that sucks. I believe it's about $300 for the bluetooth adaptor which makes all of this offer seem really shit.
  10. 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
  11. I have actually asked around about this and cant get a reply from anyone. Possibly the briefing office may know but we don't deal with them directly
  12. Hi All, If anyone is sitting on a tonne of Qantas frequent flyer points and have nothing to do with them, you can convert them for Bose products including the A20. I have 200,000 points which I think gets me a headset for free, or near enough. Just an FYI if anyone is interested. Cheers, Shags
  13. Hi All, Recently picked up some Trauma insurance and they wanted to charge me a heap more to fly "Ultralights" so I excluded it from my policy. Given I'm giving up my RAAus membership I didn't really care. For 3 months I have been trying to get a response from them on what their definition of an ultralight is (could be anything smaller than a 737, who knows with Insurers) but no response so far. Just wondering if anyone knows any official definitions in the meantime, cao's, regs, anything? Cheers, Shags
