  1. Info please , i am considing purchsing a sky fox gazelle CA25N . Question , what is the distance between the outer edge of the main wheel spats or the track if your a/c does not have wheel spats. I have a trailer but I need this info before I modify it . The specification does not mention the track or wheelbase.
  2. Sorry but I have been indisposed for the last few weeks...forced to do some house painting etc and some other things, but back now. In a few days Blogs and Classifieds will be back along with an entire site component for Clubs and Schools: And some great news... @Ahmed Zayed will be back making any tweaks, code changes, extra sections etc to make sure everyone is happy with the site and that it caters to all your needs. You will notice that it is IPS as I just lost far too much money trying to get things developed for Xenforo as I didn't want just a Facebook alternative but instead a full function support system for all pilots and @Ahmed Zayed has been working the last few weeks overcoming some of the previous issues

  4. Seems two have died in a plane crash, Qld I think, news so far is sketchy
  5. Make sure you check your notams - I nearly came unstuck!
  6. BENDIGO looks like it’s another Council looking at fees to support its expenditure to bring RPT to the local area. The cost of high fences , airport manager, major upgrade of the terminal , pathed car parking and the new extended runway and then the other demands of the RPT operator such as screening and security costs .These upgrades cost millions of dollars , so up goes rent on the hangar land, paid car parking , landing fees , air side parking fee and then there is the burden levied against flying clubs for operating to train future pilots , ( hear amounts of 5000$ per plane) so up goes the training costs , up go city council land rates and so on. It is the councils that wish for such services like RTP so why do they always burden others to obtain services. It is the council that agrees to spend the cities money on up grades for RPT operations . It is the council that spends money on pathed car parking and security fencing etc. None of the above will assist GA operators it’s all for RPT so let the RPT users and RPT operators pay for this facility. Why should GA operations need to be burdened because of upgrades not required by them. Of course RPT services will bring ASIC card requirements for air port users which will increase GA operating expenses . Scholarships for young that are now offered by the flying club May need to be decreased because council fee structure. I say if the council wants RPT let the RPT users pay .
  7. Today the site has been moved to a new server and it is in France. Even though our previous server was in Australia it wasn't optimised and needed a lot of work to firstly optimise it and then tweak the site. I believe that to obtain a greater audience and use of the site it had to be more appealing, performance wise, to the rest of the world but without sacrificing the performance to use all here in Australia. So I engaged a guru not only in server management but also a specialist in the site software we use and today he completed the setup of the new server, in France, and fully tweaked the site to get the best performance possible. The performance figures are: Load Times: Country Aust Server New Server Australia 1 sec 1.1 sec USA 2.8 sec 1.3 sec Europe/UK 3.2 sec 1 sec NOTE: WE ARE ALSO USING CLOUD STORAGE OF IMAGES SO THE CACHE NEEDS TO BUILD UP LOCAL COPIES OF THE IMAGES SO THEY MAY BE SLOW LOADING FOR A LITTLE WHILE I also have obtained a new Australian server which will contain Whats Up Australia (the off topic site), Clear Prop (the pilot supplies shop), Jackaroo (my personal domain and RecFly (my testing domain). As these are all specific to just Australia it is best to keep them here in Oz. Whats Up Australia is now also going to get a full makeover, including the move to a fully optimised version of IPS software, and promotion to make it a more social experience and a resource to discuss anything pertinent to Australia. Both Recreational Flying and Whats Up Australia will also have stronger ties to Facebook with 2 separate Facebook groups, 1 for each site, as well Before Whats Up Australia is moved I need to decide whether to keep the name WhatsUpAustralia.com.au or change it to a shorter iconic Australian name of jackaroo.com.au...Note that there is a new TLD coming out of just simply .au so no .com so I am thinking jackaroo.au sounds good...what do you think?
  8. For those with not so good eye sight (hmmm, and you fly a plane ) I have made the text on the site larger and pure black in colour

  10. Testing out the off airport operation of the Zenith Cruzer and STOL capability with 160hp
  11. I flew my Brumby over HMAS Otama today, an Oberon class submarine decommissioned in 2000 and parked off Crib Point since 2002. Surprisingly I hadn't noticed it before! It reminded me of my grandfather, who in July 1917 as a Flight Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Air Service, was involved in bombing an enemy U boat. He was flying a Curtiss Model H12 flying boat, a twin-engine aircraft with a crew of four (pictured). His log book (which I have) reveals he then had around 90 hours flight time. It also reveals he went solo on his 14th flight with only two hours 15 minutes experience, he first flew the Curtiss (twin) with less than five hours total time and he had his first forced landing (carby icing) at around nine hours! Things have changed!
  12. Any one here know a homebuilder who has a rotary engine installed i ha ve been looking at the specs and seems an ok conversion can someone point me in the right direction or has any local info so far seems to be mostly USA cheers Gareth
  13. If you make an airframe using chrome-moly tubing, you make the joints between lengths by welding, either oxy or TIG/MIG. Making the airframe using aluminium, such as with the Morgan Cheetah, involves the use of pop rivets to join the lengths using web plates. That's a lot of work, first in making the web plates, then drilling the holes for the rivets in both the plates and the tubing, and finally doing the riveting. What if you could make the joints by welding? Now aluminium welding is nothing new. Aluminium welding is something that requires some expensive equipment, AND you should use a welding glass in your helmet that is specifically designed to give a clear view of the work by filtering out the wavelengths of the aluminium light spectrum. There is a product available that allows you to weld join aluminium using a propane torch and special rods. The process is virtually the same as soldering, and needs no other personal protection equipment than safety glasses, gloves and the type of clothes you would wear when soldering. The product is called aluminium welding rod. Here is a video which shows what can be done with these rods. When you open the link, just watch the first video. https://www.toolking.com.au/aluminium-and-cast-alloy-repair-rods-ultra-bond-5pc-pack-brazing-soldering-welding/ We all know that videos by the seller can be a bit suspect, so here are two made by blokes who have used these rods. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWxYK3VFysw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FhKvU20rzE Here is a link to one Australian manufacturer of these rods. https://www.toolking.com.au/aluminium-and-cast-alloy-repair-rods-ultra-bond-5pc-pack-brazing-soldering-welding/ The business is in Bathurst, so talking to them should be easy. DISCLAIMER: I found these guys while searching the 'Net after a friend of mine told me about these rods. Tool King doesn't know me and I don't get a brass razoo for posting the link. Old Man Emu

  17. See the ATC exchange here A China Airlines Boeing 747-400 freighter (flight CI-5107) from San Francisco to Taipei with 7 crew, was in the initial climb out of San Francisco's runway 28R, when just upon contacting departure and receiving instructions from ATC for further climb the crew declared PAN PAN PAN reporting a bird strike, that had taken out some of their flight instruments. The aircraft stopped the climb at 6000 feet, the crew indicated they were still considering how to proceed, there were no procedures for the faults. The crew decided to dump fuel and return to San Francisco (KSFO). The aircraft landed safely back on San Francisco's runway 28R about 75 minutes after departure. Both angle of attack probes were found to be damaged.
  18. Another newsy newsletter from across the ditch. Included is an article about the clubs newest addition, a Tecnam Sierra P2002 ex 24-8356 from Temora. It is now a NZ LSA registered aircraft ZK-DOY. There is also an article about IBobs Savannah build which is on these forums as well. Enjoy. https://mailchi.mp/b083055886c3/aero-club-newsletter-to-january-2020
