I received an email from Airservices Australia two days ago stating:

Unfortunately this started back in the 80's but was no where near as bad then. I know a cattle station manager who did almost all his business in the Cairns area until fees started going up. He moved...

Yes, knew him but wasn't recruited by him. A long time ago but remembered him (as you said) as a real gentleman with a very pleasant nature. I wouldn't have thought he ended up in Gunning, close to...

pokeydokey I don't think anyone is missing your emphatic point that there is a fairly small flying training organisation in Canberra. The point is: there is a lot less than what there was even way...

The words behind what you say are the real essence here though. In the past Canberra had a thriving and active G.A. scene including testing and training as well as socially etc etc. Alas, that is no...

The bugs aren't much to worry about up there. Probably not so bad as many other places I've lived. Buggered if I'd be smearing vicks vapour rub around or listerine. That sounds like bullsh1t to me. I...

The Corby Starlet had a VDub engine as well as Jodels. I flew a single seat Jodel a few times in the 70's with a VW engine and it was good fun. There were two blokes in Canberra who built more than...
