Yes, certainly placed on the ground with precision. What do you think the second aircraft in was? barn door flaps and a near perfect three pointer, a Helios Courier comes to mind but many years since Ive sighted one of them.

Change subject slightly, saw your Astro Hog on another thread, just finished refurbishing my Astro Hog and re engined it with an ASP61, goes like a rocket now.

Second aircraft was indeed a Helio Courier...fun aeroplane to fly

Some of the aircraft being used in that vid gave me the shudders...the Cherokee for one...seemed like a 'big day out at the aeroclub' vid.

Those blokes are all nuts. But their skill levels would not usually be found at the average aero club.
Very skilful and nutty flying.
Cessnas can taxi through gates and Pipers can't. Otherewise Pipers can do what Cessna's can do.

Well I saw some skillful flying by the pilots of the Helio and C185...the rest I would've said was a mixed bag.

Most of the pilots in that vid had bigger balls than the average Australian Aeroclub pilot but few were professional 'bush pilots'. Flying like some of those guys flew, in PNG, would get you put on a plane south.

Bushy

If you're talking about the Cherokee 6 vs C206/7 ...then yes I agree, but looking at the beating the nose gears were getting, I think the 185 or better still, a Beaver would be my weapon of choice.

Agreed

Tailwheels are better in the bush. Although the tailwheels on ag pawnees used to shear the tailwheel bolts every 40 odd hours. They were changed at about every 30 hours.

This screen appearred while I was enroute Winton to Townsville yesterday with the GPS feeding data to the AP.

It said it was in dead reckoning mode - so I just let it go.



This is how far off track we were about 3 min later, when the GPS had found itself again!



Pretty crap dead reckoning, if you ask me!

Dr

PS: The Garmin 496 had it nailed the whole time.

That's very strange...Yesterday (Thursday) on a flight returning fro Albany to Northam, I had numerous RAIM alarms on the 210's Garmin also.

Worked fine on the flight down earlier that day and the GPS was not known to be marginal.

I wonder how many others had dropouts ?

So the Benalla theory is that that message was simply "acknowledged" by the pilot....... interesting.

I also had a GNS480 drop out twice for short periods Thursday evening (~7.30pm local, 0930 UTC) as I was approaching YARM in a 210.

Forecast and conditions were CAVOK so I hadn't checked RAIM, so I don't know if the outages were predicted or not.
