Re: Ethanol in Unleaded Petrol

Hi Spamcan "There appears to be 2 schools of thought as to whether it would be legal to sell alcohol free after July." This is one question that we did get an answer to. I don't have the letter from Minister Ryan to hand,but the gist of his response was that the overall percentage of ethanol in petr...

Re: Ethanol in Unleaded Petrol

Hi Hum Higgie here. Thanks again for the spin in the flying cow( or should I say beast) The NMAI chased this issue quite a bit, as did Brian Dillon. The last we heard the IAA were looking at Aeronautical Notice A.N. A16 as a matter of urgency. This aim of this review was to allow a pilot to use moga...

Re: Ethanol in Unleaded Petrol

Peter Not good news I.m afraid. Minister Ryan signed legislation at the start of the year saying that by July all unleaded petrol must be at least E4(ie 4% ethanol). The NMAI lobbied the minister and got a response of sorts that more or less said that the average amount of alcohol had to be 4%. For ...

Re: Statement clarifying NMAI position on picket of Aviation Hou

Pilot Just a quick clarification. The NMAI has never asked for a reduced theoretical requirement for examinations. What we have been asking for is a syllabus that is suited to our requirements. If we wanted a one size course fits all pilots, maybe we should be trying to get the ppl(A) to focus on tw...
