LHRT,

"the operator saw fit to move them to a more user friendly spot ( pusher, fire and light tests )."

That's one thing about the WESTOPS CP he was always thinking how to best set out an aircraft for single pilot ops. He was also very big on standardising aircraft, which made a lot of sense when you were doing an aircraft swap in the middle of the night!!

LHRT, quick question. How are they going to do the same with the new PC12s as I understand they will be FMS/full glass?

By the way those SANDELS are a good bit of kit aren't they? From memory the only maintenance they required was the replacement of a light bulb every 200hrs.

cheers Sarcs.

SARC's, I'd imagine training training training, and some more training, all good stuff.

Way a mate in WESTOPS explained it to me was that the normal position for a few switches is up on the roof, and it's not somewhere you want to be looking for a switch coming into a black hole approach in the middle of the night, so they moved it!

LHRT,

Thanks for the reply. Makes sense to move the test switches from down the side of the seat, (or where they on the overhead on KWO?). One i was flying was a 98 model so down the side of the seat, can be a bit of a stretch at times.

Having flown both the Legacy models and the NG, i can tell you from experience, it is not going to be easy for you guys trying to jump from Legacy to Next Gen on a regular basis.

And in keeping with the thread - a photo is now included.

It's a bit of a mystery why they didn't just upgrade the older PC12's to become the same as the newer one's (it is possible), instead of downgrading the newer one's to become the same as the old one's.

The guys who fly the newer (not the NG's) one's don't seem to have any problems with selecting the light switches on when going into black holes....

Merimbula. How old is the pic? Is that the C337 that ended up in the drink near Wilson's Prom?

Jetstar1 - Merimbula - Dec 30th 2004. The 337 was the one that went in off Inverloch recently. The aircraft was only recently purchased from Merimbula.

Tinpis. Patair Pilatus Porter PC6BH2, PT6A-20 engine. Can't pick the location but it doesn't look like Port Morbid.

But I would not have thought you few that particular aircraft?

Where is? Clues - Roy Goon was once the CFI and one of his students was to have his Mosquito shot down by flak following the famous raid to breach the walls of a prison at Amiens, France, (Operation Jericho) allowing prisoners awaiting execution to escape. His ex student was to survive as a POW but his navigator died in the crash.

Nice try! Here is different view! The only development I know of at this property is a runway extension and a serious trainset!

Sorry jack, not Groote. A long way from there, a very, very long way (but still in Oz).
