About Me

  1. Hey all, So my bird has a Rotax 912ULS with only 320 odd hours on it. The problem is, it will be 15 years old (TBO) in 3 very short years. So I have a few questions I would love your opinion on. 1) - Would you try to offload it now, and put that coin towards a new one? OR 2) - Would you wait for the 3 years and try and offload at TBO and do as above? OR 3) - Would you keep it and run it "On Condition" as allowable under RAAus? (Private use only) I would love to hear your thoughts. The engine has meticulously maintained, with all SBs etc completed. Just scratching my
  2. Hi Is there a local distributor for the aeropup and supapup aircraft kit here in Australia? Thanks
  3. I am looking for something to replace my Brumby 610 Lycoming powered. I am looking for a big cabin , 130 kts , 4 seats, what’s for sale?
  4. I am interested in the short field capabilities and very low stall performance of these aircraft. Does anyone know if any of these aircraft have made it to Oz? http://www.katmai-kenai.com/
  5. Out of curiousity what other things are you guys interested in like Cars, Boats, Gardening, Technology, Jobs, Home Maintenance ?????????????????
  6. Looking at the site statistics today and I am alarmed at an obvious downward trend. The number of "registered" users coming to the site every day seems to be maintained at an average of around 250 to 275 per day however years ago we were averaging 600 registered users per day peaking at up to 1,000 (the graph peaks are a result of the weekly email that goes out). I believe this drop is caused purely by Facebook. But what is concerning is the huge downward trend in the number of posts per day. This could be caused by Covid-19 but I would have thought that the numbers would increase given that e
  7. Hi! I need to interview seasoned pilots for thesis purposes. Would you help me? Thanks!
  8. Good Morning, I am posting to invite pilots who are interested in furthering the current research and focus on Human Factors to take part in a survey. Pilots of any category (Military, GA, Civil, Recreational, Student, Commercial) and any flight hours are invited to take part in this short (10-15min) survey looking into Emotional Intelligence and Decision Making in high-consequence situations. If there is interest, I would be happy to post a results document after the research has concluded. Link to Survey: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eKCI7qGo6yJDuDP I am happy to chat a
  9. Anybody here own or fly a Pelican PL or know where I can get some main landing gear legs for one? They were a Canadian kit years back and since been taken over by Ballard Sport Aircraft in Quebec - have had no luck e-mailing or calling them Home
  10. Any ideas please on the most suitable lubricant to help fit bungee rings. I'm replacing mine again, and want to make them slide easier around the mounts as they are stretched - no easy task as each ring has a test load of 1160 lbs (527 Kg) and they are doubled up around the mounting pegs. Current thinking is tyre bead mounting paste, but am not sure about its long-term effects on the rubber strands and cotton covering of the rings.
  11. Considering purchase of the Aera 660, have read many reviews etc which are mainly overseas ones. The vendors here simply publish the Garmin blurb and nothing relative to Australia. I am interested in subscription costs etc which I believe is Jepessen? ADSB in is available as a Garmin accessory but I was wondering IF the new Skyecho unit would connect to the 660? I know people use iPads etc to do a similar job with Avplan etc etc, but I want a stand alone dedicated solution. Any help appreciated.
  12. I think it is time to revisit the site, its function, its capability, its service to all recreational aviators. Time to perhaps look at a Wish List of what the site could perhaps deliver/provide you all...so how about it, what would you like to put on the Wish List? I will start although derived from a specific user's request: Aviation Book List - details about the many different books written about aviation Aviation Movie List - details about the many different movies concerning aviation Plain English Weather Converter After all, I am stuck here in Melbourne in lock down so it will g
  13. Has anyone heard of “Australian Performance Props”? I can’t find anything online about them.
  14. I know all the States have different lockdown rules at the moment, but are there any Flying schools that have managed to stay open and are still operating at the moment? RAAus have not said any more than As such RAAus strongly encourages pilots and flight training operators considering undertaking private, recreational, or flying training activities, to carefully review and to follow, the advice or regulations which have been published in relation to social distancing, travel restrictions, or any prohibited or restricted activity. You should also consider your personal risk factors rel
  15. I have 2 Microair radios in my Jab and i both are not very good, i would not depend on them. Can anyone suggest the best value radio available. Also what transponder can i fit, must it be a mode "S" or can i fit a second hand one from a local helicopter guy. Thanks
  16. I was wondering ... If you were building a plane and intended to use an unusual engine for a plane, hypothetically, a 1000 cc 4-cylinder engine from a Morris Minor, how would you determine the pitch and diameter of the propeller you could attache to it?
  17. Always been curious about this, but in general, is buying a Hangar and renting it out, a good investment? What are the factors/gotchas to consider. I guess Location is a big one, and demand/waitlists for hangar space. Or is it like most things in Aviation - money Pit
  18. I would guess that this might represent a marriage made in hell for the die had Jab/Rotax crowd but I would be interested to have some informed hopefully factual comments on this aircraft merits/shortcomings. So - how does the aircraft perform, particularly in comparison with a Jabiru 120 Hp powered J230 ???
  19. Two of the famous aircraft of WWll were the Stuka and the Corsair. Both were designed with gull wings. I wonder what the advantage of that design was over the usual horizontal design.
  20. Hi Gurus, If a person could positively identify the manufacturer of the following tail wheel assembly that would be great. Please disregard the tail wheel itself, that will not ident the assembly. Reason, new grease cap is required, and I want to get a spare bushing too! Grease cap is 1.25 inch or 31.7mm All exact answers gratefully received. Please see attached photos.......
  21. Ok, the site software is going well, I added the Events system so what do you want me to do next?
  22. In a desperate attempt to get some conversation going, I ask the following questions: One of the eight caps on my 912 ULS has been found not to meet the security/fit standard (loose) at the 900 hr service (now underway): Original plug is made by NGK and has the writing VDO5FMH 5KΏ on the side. · Q1 - Replace all 8? · Q2 - Replace the faulty one? · Q3 - Replace with another brand or type? · Q4 - Cheapest supplier? · Q5 - Other related comments? I look forward to some interesting suggestion and comments.
  23. How are dedicated CTAFs allocated?? The reason I ask is that in our SE Qld area for example, a very busy airfield like Gympie is sharing 126.7 while a very quiet airfield like Watts Bridge has it's own dedicated frequency. With all the training action at Gympie, sometimes the transmissions are almost constant, taking up much of the 126.7 air time. Do the managers of Gympie need to apply for a dedicated frequency and be assessed, or how is it done???
