I don't se any correlation with what Soar have done and this initiative between TAFE and BASAIR?

This is actually a good news story for the aviation training sector. Both are reputable establishments, and there is no need to rubbish them unnecessarily.

Ive heard from TAFEís previous flying partner that TAFE were absolutely hopeless.

Fark! The Tecnam Twins were $400000 each when they were new. These arenít. I have flown both of them in their previous life at anther flight school and I can confirm that they were a maintenance nightmare. Gee, buy two good recent year model Seminoles for $500k if you want a good IFR Twin trainer.

Aeroprakt Foxbat.

Close to 4K hours. Probably pretty tired if still in one piece.

My contacts that viewed the aircraft and logs all said that they was a lot of bent, broken, replaced and upgraded nose legs, even on the newer Tecnams.

The rear fuse had an inspection hole cut in it but this compromised the structural integrity of the rear fuselage, So I have been told. Look at the foxbat SB on their website apropos the rudder cable replacement. I was told by a soar engineer, well he wore a soar jacket and said he was an engineer, they had developed a tool to replace those components but IMHO it was BS. Hence the new rear fuse as part of the YBSK auction. I was told by the horse it was over 35k to get it back in the air. Did anyone notice with numerous aircraft the similarity between leak down tests, i.e., 78/80 for every cylinder?
