  1. Highlights of our recent flight from Watts Bridge to Great Keppel Island (Queensland) in our RV9A
  2. After Bob takes ages to fly off the 25 hours of testing, Robyn finally gets to go up in the plane. It was a bit windy and rough but still a lot of fun. Flew from Watts Bridge to Kingaroy and back.
  3. Video of flying our Vans RV9a plane out of Watts Bridge, Queensland, including a short take-off and landing at Lynfield and cloud-flying. Music is by Gotye (a great Australian talent). I do not own the music and will not be making any money from this video.
  4. A video showing almost all planes on display at the 2012 Natfly weekend at Temora on 7th and 8th April. Also shows a bit of us flying there in our RV9a. If you were there, see if you can see your plane or motorhome! 🙂 Sorry about the quality - still getting used to a new camera.
  5. I use this map a lot. Not sure if it is still being updated though. Airstrips near Pub and Food
  6. Thanks Ian. I had a feeling it was due to a combining of pilot supplies and other items. As others have said, it might be better to change the "Female pilots" tab to "Female items" or similar, and add a "Male items" tab. But in this day and age I don't think we need to separate the sexes; just group by categories instead (sorry, it's the ex-librarian in me coming out). :-) BTW, I tried to edit my earlier post but couldn't, to add that the Clear Prop site is great and the prices are excellent, so keep up the great work in that regard.
  7. Hi all. I was browsing through the online store (http://Http://www.clearprop.com.au) and I noticed a separate tab for "Female pilots". I was intrigued hoping to find gifts or cool stuff specifically for women who fly, but what I found was mainly makeup and beauty products! I was more than a little offended - it made me feel like the only thing female pilots are good for is to look "pretty". (I hear you snickering and you should be ashamed!) I then looked at the other pages and saw under the "Pilot" tab is generic flying stuff (like flight bags and safety equipment) as well as men's products (like men's clothes and shavers). So does this mean "female pilots" are different to so-called "pilots" and they (we) don't need all that other serious flying stuff? If I had known that I would have worn a lot more makeup and skimpier clothes when I went for my flying tests! But seriously, are we still living in the 1960's??? What do others think? I'm hoping there's a perfectly reasonable explanation but I can't think of one at the moment. <sigh> PS. I sent an email to the site voicing my concerns but haven't heard anything back yet.

  12. This just in ... http://fox11online.com/news/local/fox-cities/plane-crash-at-eaa So far no fatalies but one critical. Mixed versions on Twitter of what caused it.
  13. So sad. And so long for his family to have to wait for the news. Thoughts are with family and friends. Robyn and Bob

  15. Just got back yesterday from a 2 week holiday where we flew down to Warrnambool via Narromine to visit relatives, then caught a train to Melbourne to do some sightseeing and to check out the Avalon Airshow. We were hoping to fly back via the coast but the weather wasn't suitable, so we returned via Narromine again. Had an awesome time. If you missed the Airshow, here's some highlights.
