    Small Flying Schools

    No one is hiring aircraft. They are just training. It is in many respects easier to travel to a training centre from many rural areas. As for no-annuals. Do em whole on holiday?
  2. Take this And this... And this... Add a little Carbon Fibre...some bobs and ends...a little bit of yakka...and an ASP .32 cu Motor with 9x4 prop... And you get this... And it flies!!! Not very well. But she is tough as nails and with a little tweaking it will be worth it. I would post a video but it has one f bomb in it.
  3. Yeah. It was a great trip. I was real fortunate to score that seat and spend time with Ross in his Lightwing.
  4. This is a really good and thorough report and I believe accurate. When I flew to Natfly with Ross in his GR Lightwing he stated during discussion of engine failure procedures that the GR would turn on a dime in the event of engine failure and turning back would be high on the option list. In fact he pretty much described the manoeuvre the same way the witnesses did. I recall thinking not at this weight I hope as we were fairly loaded up with gear. It struck me suddenly upon reading this...every pilot who has died in a light aircraft crash that I have known was flying someone else’s aeroplane. RIP Ross.

    RAA against freedom in medicals

    Just shut them down over be next 12 months and share it out amongst the other organisations that already exist. Maybe then someone could re kickstart the AUF to represent the interests of Ultralight aircraft and their pilots.

    I don't think training pilots is about access to City's via the highway. Mackay has the best access via the airways in the region.

    It is fascinating to watch.
  9. That's not Socialism...that is you being paranoid. Not saying it doesn't exist.. Just that both sides that mindset at different times.
  10. Or...you are one of the elephants!!!
  11. And NO ONE....wants to acknowledge the elephant in the room.
