Some of us are not allowed to travel more than 5km from home, let alone to another city or another country.

And this is in a liberal western democracy!

Prop swinger, it's not a question of choice. The law requires me and everyone else to fly on QNH below the transition altitude (which is 10,000 feet across the whole country). The safety benefits...

I don't find QFE complicated. Actually I've never used it because (a) it's not necessary and (b) it's not available in any of the jurisdictions where I have flown, but I'm sure I could deal with it...

As I sit here in lockdown and under curfew, and wonder whether life will ever be the same again, this thread surfaces again to reassure me that some things never change.

A Chinese takeover is the last thing Australia needs. The Chinese already have their fingers in too many pies.

You did the right thing by not flying VFR into IMC and the owner should be grateful to you for that. As an aircraft owner myself I would have thanked you for your prudence, and left it at that. I...

Of course it's not Australia. Regrettably, the powers that be in Australia are not sufficiently enlightened.

The Howard government still has a lot to answer for. Privatisation NEVER made anything better.

Bring back the Federal Airports Corporation and nationalise them all!

Based on my own experience, I would say that you are keeping your head down for too long. You need to look up every few seconds to check the horizon.

It's certainly been done before in Australia. I know of a service that used to be available at YSCN. I don't know if there were many customers but I'm told they were happy customers.

Why didn't your instructor teach you this stuff when you did your cross-country training? I don't understand why questions of this nature arise.

The over water distance is insignificant if you've prepared properly. Flying over mountains or desert can be at least as risky if you haven't taken appropriate precautions.

I did my ab initio training at YSCB. I never found the layout of the airport in the least bit confusing.
