Hello my name is Martyn - just joined today. Live in the deep north of QLD in a little village called Kuranda just west of Cairns. Used to be a motor mechanic but now work in Cairns in a shop selling bearings, tools, car parts and hydraulic hoses among other things. I own a RA-Aus registered Pelican PL which was built a while back by a guy in Ayr and I'm hoping for one thing to hook up with other Pelican owners on here.

Have been browsing the forums for a while so decided now's the time to log on.

just happen to have a ''new comer'' on my field.. one of the first ''Le Pelican'' ,,, ( 1984 ) few years later, they started with the composite fuselage and aluminum/foam wing ( pelican club) and in 1991, with the PL ( aluminum wings ) and 10 years later with the Sport 600 ( different wing airfoil )

Martyn, I`ve just remembered that way back I test flew this AC for a guy who`d purchased it but hadn`t flown it! I recall it as a Pelican (?)! could your AC possibly be this one?...That`s me in it.

Hi there Franco

Just had a quick browse on your facebook page and your place there looks great what with all your lovely plants and flowers everywhere. Those drifters look like a lot of fun.

I trained with Ron Watson in Innisfail and he pointed out your place once when we were on a nav to Gordonvale and the tablelands.

Sorry bout the short message but getting late after a big day at work - I'll get back to you soon.
