In the game again :-)

Hello everyone,

 

I'm Ian - another aviator who wishes he had a money tree in the backyard!

 

TAA - sounds awfully familiar, maybe cos I'm a 'mature' guy - with momentary lapses of silliness. But then again it may have something to do with having a handful of TAA whizzle sticks (drink stirrers for those that don't know) graciously pilferred from the ol' Trans Australia Airlines *sigh*.

 

So, about me - well just a little ... Started flying in my late teens and got to first solo ... then the money tree snuffed it ... something to do with other lifestyle activities I suspect. Got back to flyin' again in my mid 30's and completed PPL, altho all a bit on and off - but it was fun for 6 yrs. Should mention it was due to a friend I had lost contact with who was flying at the time and who convinced me to go on a trip to King Island. There's only so much one can handle when in the front right hand seat ... I think 'gimme gimme gimme' were the words at the time! Then onto another hiatus ..

 

Back again for another bash in '04, onto CPL theory - now all done, and currently finishing off the navex's - yay! Then onto an Instructor Rating :)

 

Types I hear you ask ? Currently in Cessna 182T's - very nice indeed with the Garmin G1000 glass thingamajig .. and a rate to match! But have also done C172, C150 :? (a little bit, too much like a ping pong ball for moi), Piper Warrior, Arrow and Saratoga.

 

Now training out of GFS at MB - gosh knows I've been everywhere else - tho I do miss the burgers and Sunday roast meals at Berwick. I can even say I started at Tooradin - eons ago, and have a trophy to prove it!

 

Well that's about it for now - back to some study :roll:

Hello Ian and thanks for being a part of this site. There are some great people here (well all of them are great 022_wink.gif.2137519eeebfc3acb3315da062b6b1c1.gif )

 

I must confess that I have a few of those sticks so yes I do know what they are, but unfortunately were not obtained from any flights.

 

Take a look around and check out our photo gallery. You may even wish to upload some of your own. There are a number of other interesting pages too so please check them out from the menu on the left under "Resources"

 

Any questions please ask.

Yes! they are all great people! :lol:

 

You'll find good info, and news here, and there's always someone to have a natter with too!

 

Don't have any TAA swizzle sticks, but I'm sure I have some ANSETT ones. Got crap loads of ANSETT stuff. Wife used to work for them, Father in Law was National Sales and Marketing Mgr for them etc. I got glasses, serving trays, cutlery sets, cushions, seat protectors, cards, pins, you name it, we just about got it! LOL!

Welcome Ian to TAA. I am the other moderator situated in the Nations Capital (Anyone notice that the Admin and mod team are all, basically, in NSW?), and all I can say is enjoy. Post as much info, stories, photos ad reports as you can, and I think the others have said the rest!

 

Todd Milton.
