  1. Is my understanding of Cairns charges correct? I read this as I can land and park anytime for $17/t but if the landing is between 1000 and 1400 local, then they will charge $350. Is the solution just to avoid arriving between these times? What about departing during these times? Seems a bit steep!
  2. Hi Crew Having trouble finding the answer to the following - I have current GA PPL but wondering about flying a privately owned (ie not flying school) RAA 19 registered aircraft (J160 with Rotax 912s) into Class D (YPJT) - looks like might be Ok without transponder? and I should be personally fit for the job but any ideas on the aircraft suitability? Thanks in advance
  3. A couple of years ago I was given a large supply of aircraft colour slides, unlabelled, which included the four below. I have disregarded these until now, but feel they could be included in the aircraft showcase. What I need to know, if you can help, is the make and model of these gliders - I know nothing about gliders. I am guessing the first two photos are the same machine.
  4. Im looking for a microlight pilot to train me up i was just wondering if anybody knows of any in melbourne can contact me on 0411 095 735 or have any numbers i can call! Thanks guys
  5. Anyone had a go at putting those orange balls on power lines , what’s involved, cost, I’m with powercor and a bit terrified what they will charge , the balls cost $600 for three,
  6. Looking to buy a set of Rotax 912 Intake Manifolds to install a larger crossover tubes, a la https://www.flygas.info/2017/06/18/311/ Anyone got any spares? Cheers Murray
  7. I am researching to create a profile of the Texan for the Showcase. There are a lot of photos listed Texan Top Class on the web, and airport data lists a lot of Texan Top Class, but the FS website doesn't mention it and it is not listed in the variants on Wikipedia. However the Texan EVO is on the FS website and wiki but not elsewhere. Is Top Class an alternative name for the EVO? There are fixed gear and retractable versions of the EVO. Also, is the glass panel available on the Club, or just the analogue panel? I hope you can answer these questions for me so I can prepare the profile.
  8. I would like to fit a fuel pressure guage to my Rotax 582. Does anyone know where I can obtain a guage and how to go about fitting it?
  9. Hi, I want to know that for Rotax engine service bullition SB-914-039 that required clarification that who can give authorization for increased of TBO from 12 years to 15 years?
  10. Had a yellow stain appearing from around the left side of the cowl , looks like it was coming out of the exhaust where it fits into the head , could it be that the pipe wasn’t seated properly and maybe allowing unburnt fuel to leak out hence the yellow colour, I’ve had a go at reseating the compression ring but haven’t flown yet , has anyone come across this. Greg
  11. Hi, I'm after a starter pulley for a Flightstar Pioneer '84 ultralight aircraft, it has the Kawasaki 440 2a engine. Does anyone know where I would be able to source a new pulley or at least point me in the right direction? The starter works as far as I understand, just the pulley mechanism is broken. Asking for a friend. Thanks
  12. Hi, I am very busy with populating the Flying Tutorials and many other development components of the site and was hoping someone would like to volunteer to help out by populating the On This Day section of the site. All you would need to do is pick a couple of interesting entries from a list I provide and paste the content into the On This Day section for each day...it isn't hard to do but just takes a little bit of your spare time to help out. I need to get started on the Clubs and Schools section, more Resources entries for everyone and the new Groups section...there is so much still to do Please let me know if you can help...thanks
  13. Just after some advice on insurance on our private strip , 800 m long 50 m wide with trees lining both sides , got some mates who hangar their planes here , l don’t charge them , but was just informed by a pilot, that they might not be covered by their comprehensive insurance if they spear off and end up in the shrubbery because the strip doesn’t meet certain standards, or is it a matter of notifying the insurance company of the added risk to see where we stand
  14. 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
  15. I'm looking for help to clarify the position for LSA build and registration in Australia. Currently looking at beginning a build of a SPA Panther LSA. It's a single seat aluminium kit build from Florida USA, that meets the US LSA rules (according to the website). As I see it my options are to build under the SAAA or the RAA. If I go with SAAA I can register the Panther as a VH amateur built experimental? Is that correct? If I go with RAA, it would be registered 55-xxxx. Correct? So what are the advantages and disadvantages of each direction. I got my GFPT years ago and haven't flown since the nineties. I would prefer to go the route of a recreational licence, but would see no great problems either way. But I would like to keep the cost of flying down. Thanks in advance. Rob
  16. I'm finding it almost impossible to find through a google search suppliers of Stits Poly Fiber in Australia, let alone Brisbane. I also cant find any pricing on Aircraft and Spruce catalogues. Does anyone know where I can purchase it and how much it is. I'm also unable to find suppliers of Scotchweld 2216 b/a epoxy resin glue in quart kits. Any help would be much appreciated.
  17. Hello everyone. I am sure this subject has been flogged to death in the past however, does anyone have any practical experience with owning an older piper cherokee or Arrow or similar and any usefull input on costs and possible pros & cons, I am leaning toward purchasing an old plane to do my PPL in and it seems a toss up between an old Cesna 172 and a piper, i see there is quite a lot of other second hand planes at cheap price points however i think the brand seem obscure and probably for a reason and i cant be sure but the recent input i have is to steer clear of jabiru. any helpfull information is appreciated.
  18. Hi all, Looking at getting some rod ends to make some pushrods - control stick to elevator bellcrank, torque tube to flaperon bellcranks, rudder pedals to noseleg, etc. Looks like rod ends come in male and female with male seeming more prevalent. From what I can make out from the 701 plans, the flaperon rods are shown to be solid steel rod with the ends threaded and female rod ends. What's the common practice? It occurs to me that male rod ends going into a nut that's welded to chrome moly tube would be a lighter solution. Is that an acceptable compromise? How about safety? Are the rod ends usually held with Loctite or is it better to drill through nut and shaft and wire or split pin? All advice gratefully received. Cheers, Marty
  19. Thinking of a trip up north, probably as far as Cairns, with my brother who’s visiting from the US. What is it like during the November period for flying in the top end?
  20. We are seeking pilots to volunteer for a study examining how meteorological information displays affect pilot weather decision-making. Licensed pilots and currently enrolled student pilots who are at least 18 years of age and live in the US are eligible to participate. As you know, adverse weather conditions in aviation can lead to delays, deviations, and even accidents. As a result, the Georgia Institute of Technology is conducting a study on how different weather display technology influences pilot decision-making. As a participant in this study, you will be asked to complete an online demographics questionnaire regarding your flight experience, ratings, and other items. Following the demographic questionnaire, the participant pilots will be asked to evaluate various weather scenarios. The study will take no more than 2-hours to complete. We hope that you will consider participating and assisting us in learning more about weather display technology. Participation will assist us in learning more about weather display technologies with the goal of improving aviation safety. The supported internet browsers are Chrome 4.0 or higher, and Firefox 4.0 or higher. In addition, JavaScript must be enabled. We recommend using a laptop or a desktop. If you work at a secure government facility, you may need to use a personal device due to security constraints. If you would like to participate in this study, please go to the web address (URL) shown below: https://psychgatech.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5aTN0u7O2uJf7r7 For more information about this study, or to volunteer for this study, please contact: Sweta Parmar, Ph.D. Student, School of Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology, (404) 385-3761, [email protected] Dr. Rick Thomas, Associate Professor, School of Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology, (404) 385-3761, [email protected]

  22. Hi just chasing some info about a 12 volt voltage regulator issue for a mate. Its not an aircraft engine application but any answers may be helpful for aviation engines in the future. I was asked to have a look at a 12 regulator charge issue on a sail boat's inboard 'BUKH' engine. What is happening is when he places the positive terminal spade to the regular it sparks. He has no isolation switch in the circuit so the positive is live. Would the regulator have a fault / short internally or should the positive feed be made open (disconnect positive from the battery or fit an isolation switch) when the positive feed is connected to the regulator. Thanks in advance. Mike
  23. Hello all. Perhaps someone can figure this out for me. Yesterday as I was warming up my engine prior to departing for Austfly at Narromine, I noticed a big oil smear being blown over my floor windows by the prop blast. After shutting down and removing the cowls, it was obvious that lots of oil had suddenly leaked out in the vicinity of the oil filter. It had been blown all over the lower half of the engine, over-filled my belly cowl and was pouring onto the tarmac. It took about 200ml to bring the dipstick reading back to where it was before startup. After a thorough cleanup, I restarted the engine for a few seconds, then stopped to inspect for oil leaks. None. Running the engine for progressively longer periods still resulted in not a drop of oil appearing. Mystifying. The only change I had made to the engine was to cut a 90degree T junction into the oil cooler hose, so I could fit a large workshop oil pressure guage. The engine ran happily with this for nearly half an hour of taxiing around (that instrument agreed with my panel gauge, so I'm happy about that). After that test I replaced the big gauge with a small low oil pressure switch, rated at 180kPa. I wired it to earth out a bright LED on my panel, to give me instant warning of a pressure drop, such as due to a ruptured hose. I cannot find any evidence of oil leaking around any of the new connections. Aside from the mystery oil leak, the new sender seems to be back to front: the plurry warning light only comes on when the engine is running! Any thought gratefully received.
  24. Hello all. I have a question about Isa deviation and I can not work it out. the details are 12000 feet and 0c. 15-24 gives an Isa temp of -9 but the deviation is 9. the problem I have is I would have thought this is -9 and don’t understand why it is a positive not a negative. if anybody can show me what I am doing wrong would be great.
  25. Hi all, I'm about to install rudder & elevator cables. Firstly, turnbuckles. Is it acceptable to use marine-style stainless steel turnbuckles? Looking at various pictures of 701 builds, they look like brass fittings (obviously supplied in the hardware kits). Secondly - cable shackles (see pic below) These handy little things seem ideal for the control surfaces and elevator bellcrank (so 6 required). Trouble is they seem to cost an arm and a leg. Aircraft Spruce in US sell them for $10.85 each, I logged on to an Australian supplier (AAE) who have them as something like $38 each. So it looks like an Aircraft Spruce order (when the dollar gets higher perhaps...) unless anyone knows of a supplier here or has some spares they'd like to sell?? Thirdly - safety wire. Is this a special grade or will any 0.032" S/S wire do the trick? Thanks! Cheers, Marty
