The figures for the PA28 are right there but those for the C150 seem a little high to me. If you look around, you'll find that you can rent C152s from school for around $240/h wet and they still need...

This is it. The final nail in the coffin of many small operators I'm afraid. Surprisingly the Aspeq website will still take bookings for CASA examinations. I don't know if that'll be allowed to go...

Nothing seems to preclude a pilot from making a refuel stop at one of the 6 nominated aerodromes and then to proceed to a private airstrip. Burnie or King Island are not PPR so I wonder how effective...
