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.

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 🙂

Will a powered parachute meet that New ' part 103 ' regs !.


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?

Interesting that NZ ultralights are all properly country (ZK) registered.

I went through Whanganui twice on the 20th June - by road, slurping my $3.15 a litre petrol.
