Video - Motorkite Dreaming

A good five part series on flying flexwings across Australia. I think the danger is exaggerated a bit by the narrator, the ground crew ran into just as much trouble and they were experienced drivers! Worth a watch.

Re: tail-wheel rating

Hi martin, I'm working in the UK at the moment and while I'm over and back quite a bit I'm not sure if I could provide you with the continuity you're looking for. If you're stuck and you can find a suitable aircraft I'll see if I can help you out. What do you plan on flying when you have you're trai...

Re: tail-wheel rating

As xpro says it's just a signoff. It is generally referred to as a 'rating' which implies something is added to your licence, but it's just a logbook endorsement by the instructor. Also there is no minimum specified. I have signed students off from 3 to 11 hours depending on their experience but I w...

Re: Paper or Digital VFR Charts

Hi martins, Yes i agree, I would only do it with a backup. I have SkyDemon on my phone and tablet so no issues there but having to carry around an outdated chart seems a bit pointless to me. I thought the charts from around 2005 were much clearer and easier to read, especially for terrain. There hav...

Paper or Digital VFR Charts

Hi all, I was out flying last weekend and had SkyDemon running on my iPad. I was operating a little lower than usual due to weather and was very impressed with the obstacle warnings that SkyDemon gave me as I flew along. After landing I took a look at the paper chart in the back of the aircraft only...

Re: 8.33kHz Radios

Hi David, As I understand it, it will only be for a percentage cost of the radio itself regardless or whether it's self installed or not. There will be no refund for the cost of installation so it's actually better for self builders. I believe the only restriction will be that it needs to be an upgr...

Re: 8.33kHz Radios

Hi OnTheNumbers, We went for the f.u.n.k.e. ATR833 OLED in the end. I have used one before and I like them. There's a refund application similar to the UK being completed at the moment that should release some EU funding for EI- aircraft to help offset some of the cost of upgrade. I'll post further ...

Re: Brexit

Hi Pilot,

I'll stick on my long list of NMAI Things to Do! In fact, I think the best sector of GA to look at this problem is Business Aviation. I think they will be impacted the most, especially if the notification periods went to 24 hours.
