It depends on how the aircraft is customised. A few are steam with no attitude, but most of those that I've seen are EFIS equipped. Some have really good stuff too. But, the problem with the RAAus...

Yes - with the full fuel load of 130L, it would likely be over, but what if they only loaded fuel to bring it up to MTOW? MTOW = 600 kg, probable BEW = 370, and lets assume the pilot was 90 kg and...

Things at Busso are not good for any form of GA - being kicked out of 'old' terminal, the hangars 'resumed' and new leases decreed, and the activities of local flying schools discouraged. Add to this...

Sunny,

Not every Grade 1 instructor has a wish to move on into RPT: many I know are happy with ab initio training, with others likewise for more advanced pilot training. Not that you'd expect them to work...

I can't agree that instructor availability need be a problem. Plenty of G1s about who are under-employed or semi-retired. Pay us what we're really worth, (well above award!), as experienced Grade...
