Hi,

Not a pilot but possibly in the future. Got to post here to get that message off my screen so I can actually see the forum and click on the buttons!

Hi Storm, don't need to be a pilot to enjoy flying! We enjoy the discussion on engines and new technologies.

 

Sounds like you are already enjoying what's on offer.

Hi and welcome Storm!

 

Hope you enjoy, and wish you all the best should you decide to get into flying. Let us know if you book in for a TIF in the future.

Hi everyone, my name is Trevor Maskell, located on the Gold Coast. I completed a CPL at age 20, but didn't persue an aviation carrear. Now as a new RAAUS member, l would like to get into flying again and maybe airplane construction.

Cheers, Trevor

Hi Trevor and welcome to the forum.

 

I'm sure you'll find heaps of good advice on here for your up and coming project, there are many on here who have built their own aircraft.

Hi Trevor, and Welcome to the Forum.   There are some really knowledgeable folk on here ( I don't include myself in that accolade Btw ) 

 

I wonder how long ago you did your Commercial ?. . .I ask, as a long lapsed CPL got the bug and came to our airfield for a TIF and appraisal of how much he remembered ( ! ) He had not flown for 15 years.

 

When informed that it would not take him long, he signed up and completed all sixteen exercises in 11 hours thirty minutes, flying an Evektor Eurostar low wing aircraft ( similar to the Aussie Sport Star ) . .  The CAA allowed him to take a retest, as he'd Obviously got the skills. . .which he passed and is now building a Zenair CH 601 ( Low wing ) He is 63 yrs young and says that now he's paid off his mortgage, and for two kids to go through Uni,. . it's HIS turn to have a bit of fun !

 

:welcome:

Great to hear you are considering constructing your own aircraft.

You will find this a really rewarding experience as you will be learning about flight and the engineering of such - at the same time.

Go to Oshkosh constructor haven. Pinch some tips and ideas from the Americans, do not have to uses all ideas only take what you feel comfortable with.

What I do say consider Levil for your instruments. (engine monitoring and flight)

Before you start get a grasp of the engineering principals as you will have a truck load of "experts" offering advice. Yes, they are every where, the best question you can ask them, "Lets go and have a look at your plane so I can see how you did that". Hmmmmm gone in the dust.

A very good place to start Bill Whitney has a set of CD's, get the CD's and the notes to go with them, then you will be on the road to happiness. Bill is an engineer who has a passion and an understanding these small aircraft.
