Speaking of younger generations, full credit should go to Tim Howes and the Bush Flying Down Under mob (check Facebook if you’re not across them) as they really are gathering momentum in the tail-dragger scene and getting more younger guys / gals interested in flying and pinning HP their aircraft. There’s a lot of younger lads and ladies getting into this kind of flying. They really are showing that you don’t have to fly a 50 year old Cessna bug smasher, but rather the huge array of STOL capable aircraft with big tyres and unlimited potential. Even an entry level Skyfox or Kitfox is capable of landing almost anywhere.

Watching the likes of Trent Palmer, Cory Robin and Mike Patey on YouTube will also show how vibrant the younger generation are in the US too. You’d be mistaken for thinking it was some kind of religious cult. Some might argue that it is.

They are not only promoting flying, but cleaning up the outback and offering support to drought stricken farmers.

If you’re not across this scene, join up to Facebook and subscribe or subscribe to their YouTube channels. Mike Patey’s channel is no less than inspirational.
