I have always assumed that the reason you address the station is you are making them responsible for your MayDay call and giving them time to prepare. If you just issue a MayDay call and do not...

Even if it is possible, don't assume it is an easy process.

I wanted to import a Jabiru J400 from France and it became apparent very quickly that this was going to be a real pain.

First of all,...

I have a very differing opinion of not taking it in the cockpit with you. I agree that it should not be your only source of navigation but I also think you should use all viable means possible to...

The motion is no longer proceeding. CASA have apparently reached an understanding with Jabiru over the issues and for the moment, the proposal will not go ahead. It does go on to say that Jabiru do...

As an owner of a Jabiru Aircraft, I find it worrying on my part that I have to sort of agree with CASA. Although the design of the Jabiru engine should mean that it is bullet proof (not really much...

What aircraft were you flying? My aircraft (Jabiru) regularly has the stall warner go off upon rotation. The POH even states that the stall warner may sound. My POH states to lift the nose at 35kts...

I didn't realise it wasn't allowed. I have had my non certified MGL EFIS connected to my Trig TT21 and sending my position for ages. Never had anyone mention anything. The Trig has an option in it's...

Thank you for all your advice. As I said at the start, I was out of date with CofA stuff as I had exclusively dealt with permit over the past 2-3 years. I guess I was kind of hoping that things had...

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against any permit aircraft. I would not have owned one if I did. But permit aircraft tend to be light and low weight. When I flew the Cessna it was a heavier...

I have really enjoyed my permit aircraft over the time I have had it and would consider another one that is bigger with a larger useable load. As was said, these tend to be very expensive although...

I cannot understand why there is an argument between owning a permit or CofA aircraft. As far as I see it, they do indentical things. I fly a Cessna 152 CofA and own a Jabiru. I can do identical...

Jab engines have taken a hammering over the years. Some of the comments were deserved and some not. Generally, a Jab engine in a Jab airframe is ok.
