    Drifter For Sale!

    All things must come to an end and Ron Biondi has finally put his beloved Drifter, 'The Red Barron' up for sale! Ron will be 90 years old very shortly! the Drifter is registered and Ron is still legal to fly but he`s finding it just too hard to get in and out of and on top of that, I keep telling him " it`s better to retire from flying than to become a statistic". Ron was the first guy in the Cairns area to buy a Drifter from Austflight Aviation! it originally came out with twin seats and controls, but at the time it couldn`t be registered as such so to be legal it had to be registered under ANO 95-10, which meant the rear seat and controls had to come out. I got to fly that Drifter before Ron ( flown it several times over the years) as Ron hadn`t learned to fly yet, like me, he`d done a few hours in a Cessna and decided it wasn`t the way he wanted to fly! Franco, Ps, If interested, let me know and I`ll put you in touch with Ron or his daughter, Andrea Gregory.... For those on facebook, you`ll find details on Andrea Gregory`s post, dated, 8 November... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1419567688295037/
  2. How lucky is this ferry pilot. Departing YLTV for NZ on a ferry flight and had an engine failure just after departing LTV. Survived the forced landing which probably may not have if he was over water in the Tasman. https://news.cfa.vic.gov.au/-/plane-crash-lands-in-traralgon-paddock
  3. An incident with a Rotax 912 ULS Bing carburetor On turning on the fuel in my plane, even without the electric fuel pump on, fuel was pouring from the bottom of the motor enclosure, it was found that the co-pilots carburetor was literally pouring out of the bottom of the fuel bowl though a hole about 1mm in diameter. On the removal of the bowl, it was found that the outer float was laying over in the bowl along with its holding pin. On further testing, it was found that the fuel pump could keep the bowl full of fuel and the float working even though the fuel was pouring out of the hole in the bottom of the carburettor. The problem was fixed, but, is this a design fault? If the hole didn’t go right through the carburetor bowl and the same thing happened, then the fuel then would not have been able to escape and become a fire hazard. We were lucky it was found before flight. I have a feeling that this has been happening for a while as sometimes when I did the pre-takeoff checks, I would wipe my finger under the co-pilots side carburettor and there was an orangey fuel stain, consequently, I have taken the bowl off to have a look at the bowl seal but only to find nothing obvious. The pin must have been loose but not loose enough to fall out of it’s mounting hole.
  4. Sharing this information following Hunter Recreational Flying Club - Cessnock's general meeting today where revelations of a brazen theft of a propeller from a hangared Jabiru were discussed. The thief knew how to access the locked hangar. Details of the propeller are as follows: Propeller Serial #171 Blades are #638 & 640 Hubs are #460 front and rear Spinner Assy #265 The more we can spread this information the better the likelihood of an apprehension. Contact Cessnock police if you do have any information.

  7. Hi, the site is desperately looking for an aviation learned person to act as or Quiz Master. All you need to do is come up with quizzes of about 10 or so questions each and send them to me. They need to be multiple choice questions with at least one correct answer and an approx time it should take a person to complete. For example: Questions and Answers 1. Select from the following choices the answer that is NOT one of the four forces acting on an aircraft in flight. A. Thrust B. Speed C. Drag D.Lift 2. If you are flying into a direct headwind of 28 knots, at a true airspeed of 156 knots, what is your ground speed? A. 156 knots, as your groundspeed is not affected by wind B. 184 knots, as wind and true airspeed is additive C. 128 knots, because TAS minus headwind component = GS D. Cannot determine from the data given 3. You're taking off in a tailwheel aircraft with a non-Polish engine. As you begin your takeoff roll, you use no rudder displacement. On which side of the runway will you most likely depart the prepared surface prior to getting airborne? A. Left B. Right C. Neither, as the aircraft will track straight with use of ailerons only D. Unable to determine the answer without knowing the wind direction 4. As a general rule, as ambient temperature increases, aircraft performance increases. A. True B. False 5. Hydroplaning is when the aircraft tires lose traction with the runway surface due to rain or standing water during takeoff or landing. Which of the following formulae can be used to determine the speed at which hydroplaning will occur? A. .6 times the stall speed with takeoff flaps B. 9 times the square root of the tire pressure C. Aircraft weight divided by the square root of the tire footprint in sqare inches D. Cannot be determined, as hydroplaning speed varies with the tread pattern just like in your car 6. There are OLD pilots and there are BOLD pilots, but there are few OLD, BOLD pilots! A. True B. False 7. Name the two factors which affect Density Altitude. A. Pressure altitude and gross weight B. Gross weight and temperature C. Engine power and flap setting D. Temperature and pressure altitude 8. Your friend flies his single engine plane into Beloit Airport for the Spring Fling Pancake Breakfast and Auto Show. After he shuts down in the parking area, he tosses you a rag and asks your help in cleaning bugs off the plane. The leading edges of the wings are covered with bug splats, but there are no bugs at all on the front of the propeller. Why not? A. Bugs can "see" the propeller and will avoid it at any cost. B. The propeller "blows" them out of the way so they impact the wings instead C. Tractor propellers are pitched such that the first surface that contacts the air (and bugs) as the plane moves forward is the back side of the propeller blades D. The propeller power pulses project a vibration ahead of the plane that bugs don't like and naturally avoid E. None of the above 9. What is the minimum number of hours prior to flying that a pilot may consume alcohol? A. Half an hour B. 4 hours for beer or wine; 8 hours for hard liquor C. 8 hours from "bottle to throttle" D. 24 hours 10. Pilots who fly tricycle gear airplanes are sissies. A. True B. False PLEASE, if you feel you would like to contribute to the learning of pilots and just create some fun quizzes by being the Quiz Master then URGENTLY let me know...thanks for any help you can give
  8. Calling Dreyfus. I've sent you a couple of messages re your free ASI but have not received a reply yet. If the offer is still valid, please get in touch via private message.
  9. I have just tried to complete the RAA online survey most appropriately named as managed by "Survey Monkey". This is typical of a managed survey that is designed to provide a known out come, the following question must be answered or the survey can not be completed. Quote: 18. Sport Pilot is currently delivered to 1500 paying subscribers. The production and distribution of the magazine is subsidised by the membership at large. This is not sustainable. I believe: RAAus should increase the cost of the magazine so subscribers pay the true cost. RAAus should invest in other delivery channels to ensure all members benefit from the content End of Quote: I DO NOT believe either of these is in my interests yet the only way to complete the survey is to agree with either one of these items & as a final insult, prefix that with an "I Believe" I will let RAA know that I think they are conducting a very shonky survey. I hope other members will do the same
