Hi guys,

 

Just landed and very new to this forum. I live in the Redlands area in South East Queensland. I had done my GFPT years ago however it just got too expensive. A friend recently told me of the Recreational Pilots Cert and now I am back and am very interested in learning more.

 

Regards

Thanks for the welcomes guys.. Any advice on a training school with some good planes around SE QLD? I live in the Redlands and am happy to travel 1 hour - 1.5 hours or so. Looking to do the cert and Nav endorsements.

Sounds great cause - me too! I am training with John also. I have my GFPT and doing my recreation certificate with John. It takes a bit of getting used to with the stick on the right and the throttle on the left. I used to fly Tomahawks. I am doing circuits at the moment and am having a bit of trouble with nailing some decent landings. I have a bit do go also I tell you. Lots of fun though and I am enjoying it. I may see you out there one day.

Hello, you will find that flying right hand on stick and left hand on throttle or left hand on stick and right hand on throttle will come naturally . It shouldn't take anymore than a 5 second conversion.

Yes I did recognise it. I went up Saturday thought he conditions were a little challenging.. 20 knot crosswinds at some point so I didn't get far. I am glad John is patient :) I usually fly on the weekends usually before lunch. I'll be there next weekend though I don't know which day yet. It would be great to chat if I see you there. How are you going and how many hours have you done? Are you up to just cirucuits or flying around the training area?

Welcome magishme although the weather may not be kind to you at least you are learning that flying can't always be done when we want it and the key is to only fly when the conditions and experience is on your side keep up the good work
