  1. Just saw the storch for sale, is it a slepkev?
  2. Hi all, My 12yo son is showing a very keen interest in aviation and he is keen to start some flight training. I know he is young so I have been advised to get him the Bob Tait Recreational Aircraft BAK Basic Aeronautical Knowledge hand book to give him some idea of what to expect if he starts his training. Is there out there that has one of these books they no longer need? happy to pay a fair price if you have one setting around not been used like the one in the attached photo. Thank Rmce
  3. Can any one please advise the approx basic empty weight, MTOW, VNO and VNE figures from the POH of a GR912s tail wheel or nose wheel Lightwing aircraft? Cheers
  4. I am converting my GFPT to RA-Aus. What would be the fastest way to bone up on the theory? I think it will be bak, air law and radio .
  5. How many Drifters are planning on going to Narromine this year for AusFly. Looks like I might be able to make it this year depending on weather, work and the wife. I don’t want to be the only rag n tube there. Thanks.
  6. So there are lots of videos on YouTube et cetera, of aircraft landing on beaches, gravel bars in rivers and such... What is the legality in Australia? Looks fun would love to do the same.
  7. Flying early afternoon, heard mayday call on area frequency SW slopes NSW, before 1pm EST. Jabiru pilot said engine had stopped 4,500 feet or thereabouts. Landed in paddock out of Bordertown South Australia. I think I have the callsign right. I think I heard 2 pob. I think a medical chopper was involved in relaying messages from nearby, relayed that they'd landed safely in a paddock (unverified). Interesting to hear the amount of questions being asked by Melbourne centre re POBs, EPIRB, etc over what felt like minutes - was waiting for the pilot to politely sign off so he could concentrate on flying the plane.
  8. I recently noticed this damage to a polycarbonate windscreen. Definitely not stones - the screen remains smooth to the touch inside and out. Questions: (a) anyone any ideas as to what's causing this? (b) Is it dangerous - ie might the windscreen break in flight? © How to prevent in future? All helpful comments gratefully received!
  9. Hi, I'm hoping to go on a solo flight tomorrow but my membership expired last week. I renewed it and have received a receipt. Even though I have not received the card in the mail yet, can I still go flying? Is it a requirement to carry your membership on board similar to how its required to carry your GA license on board? Sorry, I have searched and cannot find an answer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks heaps!
  10. An old idea that could speed up supply delivery, probably reduce long distance freight costs and make our roads safer. http://www.wimp.com/fairchildpackplane/
  11. If this was a real helo, what 'G's" what the pilot be experiencing. No idea but I wouldn't want to be on board. http://www.wimp.com/impressivehelicopter/
  12. Hello there! A very recent incidence motivated me to join Recreational Flying: I am a Danish UL-pilot flying ICP Savannah with big "all-terrain" tyres. Good for me and my copilot, the other day during climb in hot weather with max. load I burned a piston (for the 2. time in 4 years) despite a cruiseclimb airspeed of 60-65 kts, and landed safely on a semi-rough unprepared farm grassfield nearby. No damage to the aircraft or to us. So now I am finished with direct air"cooled" engines. D-motor is compact and seems rather interesting for it's relative low RPM and direct drive, it does not have those 2 carburettors that don't agree and cause headaches to my fellow UL colleages each time they need adjustments. My questions are: Are there any Savannahs somewhere currently flying with the Belgian D-motor, and if so, could anyone tell me if it works well and how it performs? Is the engine mount similar or in the best case identical to those of, say Rotax or Jabiru? If not, it should be designed to fit both the Savannah and the engine, perhaps the Belgian factory could help in this respect? Or what would you suggest? Kind regards
  13. Due to their complexity, current official forecasts do not promote safety. Will this ever change? PEMET is a great innovation.
  14. I'm looking to do a flight to Adavale to the west of Charaville in February. Does anyone have any info on this Airstrip? I have a phone number for the Adavale Pub/Shop but no answer a yet. Maybe someone here can has info. Thank you,
  15. I'm looking for a couple of seats from Canberra and back anyone is interested. Either day is fine. I already have an offer to go by car https://www.wingsoverillawarra.com.au 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday Air Display Times 11:30 am - 4:30 pm Saturday 10:30 am - 3:30 pm Sunday
  16. Can someone point me in the direction of the CASA legislation on licencing Mainly look for hours and requirements etc. for various licences
  17. Guys at YLOX heard a mayday call from Tecnam Sunday 12 .30 ish . One POB engine out, landing in paddock, Pinnaroo area. Aircraft from Renmark tried to contact but not successful. Heard from Tecnam about half hour later, cancel Mayday Any news?
  18. Just a few questions about the Joey II 1. Will it take the new Rotax 912 with fuel injection? Rotax 914? Other engine options (Jabs + others - UL Power 130HP)? 2. Are there any specifications/more performance values available on it than what is listed in the website (needs updating?) ie fuel capacity? 3. Anyone have one of these flying yet, and how long did it take to build? This will probably be my choice of aircraft in the next 6 months or so if everything goes according to plan - looking for speed (130K +) as will be used to get to and from work (the ultimate tax deduction?) Gold Coast to Central/North Queensland monthly. Building I am guessing would be in the 400-600 hr range? I still have to get my RAA Lic yet, but that is starting in the next few weeks.
  19. Hi All, I am sorry if this has been asked before but i was wanting some information on converting. I am training at Moorabbin in a J160 under RAA, The school i am currently at does not have GA as yet. When i get my pilot certificate what are the minimums and best route to go getting my GA PPL? Cheers, OziPilot
  20. G'day - another Aussie joins the ranks. Want to purchase a LSA amphibious aircraft next year and have specific requirements that seem unattainable to date. Composite engineered body and high wing - demountable/trailerable. (not a Searey) 2 wheels that will handle sand up front. (not a Colyaer, et al) Corrosion resistance optimal. (Can handle that part myself). Pusher 100HP minimum. Side opening window - ala Searey. Don't want monocoque/tilt opening. Price under $150,000 new. Second hand ok if meeting above specs and under 200 hours and under $100k. Ideas?
  21. There are clouds, and then there are clouds!
  22. Hello all, Keen to get some information on whether it would be valuable to get some C206 time before heading 'up north' to look for my first CPL job? Do employers generally ask for 206 time prior to even being considered? If so, how many hours on type do they generally ask for? Thanks in advance, Matt.
  23. Can anyone tell me the variance in running costs of a Jab 230 V's Jab160? Is the 230 worth the extra purchase cost? What are the benefits over the 160?
  24. Anyone on here going to this event tomorrow at Caboolture Airport? We arrived today and looking forward to it! Scotty
  25. I am missing my current track history on my ipad and miss it .
