Flight of the Scout


Recommended Posts

A mark 3 with the big 18hp Fuji robin engine, same as my first aircraft, learned to fly in it. Good performance and lots of fun on a calm evening. I think it cost about $3200 new and came in a box about the size of two coffins joined end to end.

If you could do it with a smooth wing surface and without heavy complex mechanisms, it'd be well worth it.  Birds do it and they fly pretty well.

Every time I mention these types of flying machine to modern aviators, the ‘CASA lovers’ want to shoot me down 😞  Well, it’s coming……my day in the sky with NO registration and NO bullsh1t  will happen……it’s on my bucket list.  So, the little goody two shoes RA-aus and others will have to lump it.  It will probably have to be a night VFR flight at midnight on a full Moon….what fun that would be 🙂

Yes, 4 manufacturers under the FAA FAR Part 103 in the U.S.

No category as such in Australia, however I have been referred to our CAO 95.10?

that MAY allow unregistered aircraft to fly within the confines of the aircraft owners property, with restrictions?

This needs clarification?
