We had our SAAA admin girls from TAS, come down for a fly. Having a chat…. well, its actually a pre-flight briefing being conducted.

Also had Garmin Australia Rep along with all the new Garmin gear, including the G3X touch and G5. I think Pete likes it.

G3X Impressive gear.

Great to see it all working.

Ready to go for the first.

Watching the Legacy’s come and go.

Looking at my GAMI spread, down low and in no hurry…

Direct to SCAPA (Young) FL130 settled in the cruise, nice speed over the ground.

Smooth as silk

Turning the corner at SCAPA.

FL130 keeping me out of that cloud. OAT -4C.

Great ground speed passing 10,000′ on descent. Had to slow significantly due to the forecast severe turbulence below about 5000’….and it was.

The Manning River Aero Club held a comp day yesterday and Linda and I were able to get up and say hi to family and also to fly the comp. The River Run followed by a spot landing.

Instead of flying the comp in the clubs C172 VH-IHK I decided to do it in Zeeyah.

My Dad was a founding member of the MRAC so I try and stay in touch with club members.

Jack a bit of flap out and have fun. Really good coordination needed.

It is almost impossible to do above about 120kts.

You get the idea. Beautiful crisp clear winter day.

The beautiful Manning River Area. Drop in to the MRAC if you are ever in the area.

Lake Burragorang

Heading out across our Blue Mountains

Guess?

Ahh we have a compass.

Changing views

From the air.

In the clear.

A beautiful VFR day

Posted: May 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

Not often I get to fly long distance VFR. A most enjoyable sector, not even oxygen required.

Watching the South Australian countryside drift by.

Only 363 NM left to go to Wedderburn

The only cloud I saw over Lake Burragorang during descent.

HARS keep collecting a huge selection of aeroplanes. The latest addition. 

I flew down in VH-ZYA on both Friday and Sunday. Two days of fabulous flying displays.

The Sabre

Back to the early days.

Focke-Wulf FW190 the only one flying.
Good looking and very distinctive sound.

On my way home from South Australia after deciding where our next LOBO Oz fly-in would be. Even the Cappuccino machine is working beautifully.

I was a very hot day. At FL170 my density altitude was above 20,000 feet. It is still amazing to see what these little aeroplanes are capable off. Love it.

Direct to AVBEG, so almost home. Very little cloud today and as smooth as in the cruise.

I never get sick of the detail.
