The piccy with the Jab, the Sportstar and the ?Jodel looks like Boonah - possibly at the Flying Tigers fly in......greenest I've seen it for a while, too.

No I wasn't there. Many many moons ago enjoyed ultralighting in proper open cockpit rag and tube stuff (none of this newfangled plastic fantastic ergonomic nightmare stuff),as well as GA and the Boonah strip was close to some pretty damn scenic flying as well as the Dugandan Pub!

Didn't the past CP of Slingair (Paul McK) teach there for quite a while, too?

Should give you a clue.

Yar, nice panel for VFR work.

Ergonomics? Let's see: Stick between legs, flap lever back over left shoulder, throttle *down* between legs (and no friction nut), hand operated brakes and (IIRC) separate lever for elevator trim....hmmm. Flown *lots* of types of planes (left stick, centre stick, side stick; throttle - left right or centre; finger brakes, heel brakes, toe brakes etc.) and I can truthfully say I have never seen an arrangement quite like it when setting up for circuit entry and landing in turbulence. ....... probably shouldn't hijack the thread!

notimtams

few corrections

centre stick, right hand, flap....electric, throttle left hand (between legs) and friction nut not needed, trim is seprate and no electric trim, but its ok where it is, ....now the brake is a bit awkward but hey!

Maybe you would find the NG version nicer to fly. All circuit/downwind is all together, Carb heat (left of pic), fuel pump, flaps and ASI all in one area and directly in the line of vision for landing.

Certainly never been a problem and I must say nicer than a C172 or Piper cockpit to use, especially with charts and plans etc. So much more usable space! Maybe you remember some older smaller types......

Back to the pics then!

Fair cop J... centre stick. Will stand by the flap lever statement for the Jab model I flew at the factory quite some time ago, though! Interesting flight, too - from the RHS in a plane where the L & R wings did not share exactly the same coincident angle! Me, I like to see the throttle position.....but each to his own, as they say in Tasmania.

NOTimTAMS,
For God's sake mate, thats not a Jodel, it's a Nanchang CJ-6A.
Bit of a difference methinks..

you are quite correct, a new C172 with the G1000 would be nice, and to be fair they do fly nice the old girls! But my motivation was probably not so clear, meaning the stick and ergoniomics. No yoke and throttle / mixture to get your charts and plans tangled up in.....dont try and tell me it does not happen, everyone I know comments about how much free space I have!

And yes at maybe $400K the new C172 will be nice, but even so, and i am not sure they realy get the performance figures (note website does not quote speed at 60% power) lets compare. Max speed 123kts V over 130kts, climb 720 V over 1000, Fuel...30+LPH v 20LPH, weights usable 360 V approx 335-345 (note if range is compared comparable kg for kg), TKOF dist 288 v 200.........

Sure the C172 would be nice if you give me one, but bang for buck at hourly cost of $40 V way more, and I have more load speed climb....I put up with the throttle in a funny place away from my charts

OK biased rants over lets see some more great pics, I promise to behave for a while

And HEL YEAH pics from the eastern states (NZ) are always nice to see

J430, man, you've gotta stop posting pictures of your dash! That's now like 3 times for this thread alone!

Notimtams,
No.2 looks like Cherrabah.
I am sure it doesn't get cold enough up north to wear a vest/jacket.

SkyWagon - you've go a good eye , too - #2 is Cherrabah looking west.

#1 Home Hill
#2 Cherribah
#3 Innisfail
#4 Walsh's Pyramid

Man I gotta start looking out the window more!

#1 - I took one look and thought, "that's one of those shingle bed rivers in the South Is of NZ". Forget the fact that it is one of the most characteristic bridges in Qld, and I have flown over it dozens of times!

#2 - landed there a couple of dozen times, admittedly not for 20+ years so I am not being too hard on myself for that one.

#3 - only go there once a year to do my IR renewals, although Cowboy Bob doesn't like me looking out the window for those. Otherwise I fly over the place enroute to YBCS a maybe 6 times a year, but that's IFR and Innisfail is invariably clagged in to the deck!

#4 - must learn to pay more attention. Driven past the thing a dozen times.
