In the outback areas I used to fly, I figured it would take up to 3 days for someone to get to me if I crashed. I reckon that in most of the outback you can force land and walk away, buy you need to...

A tennant near Blue Demon tells me that the change is to give better access / carparking for DFO. I understand that Blue Demon & Simpson have been offered alternatives that are inferior to their...

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that pretty much all the ADS-B in traffic solutions are UNCERTIFIED. That is, they are not legal for use in IFR - or situations such as this...

This is pretty misleading. The ATSB report only says " At 1119, the air traffic controller passed traffic information to AEM about JQF departing from Mangalore. At 1122, JQF made a departure call...

Another weak report from the ATSB. It is dramatically late and despite the fact that they have (Area) had radio transcripts for weeks, there is scant reference to them in the preliminary report.

I want the service we PAY for. Both in AsA fees and in the cost of implementing ADS-B

Which bit?
AEM was not on its flightplanned route - correct. Look at Flight Aware. It looks like ATC did its normal trick of routing IFR traffic around Melbourne above the Visual Route. Typically...

My guess is that AEM was being vectored until it was handed over from 135.7 to 122.4 maybe 5-10 min prior at which point I would presume they were give the "resume own navigation" call.

AEM was not on its flightplan route. It had clearly been vectored around the ML CTA. My guess is that they had descended to 4,000 ft for the 3900 ft VOR entry. I would assume they asked for descent...

5nm and 4,000 ft is beyond the CTAF really. Both would have / should have been on the same area frequency. The flight trace of VH-AEM clearly shows that is was being vectored. The Seminole was...

I'm with Thornbird.

CASA's approach to IFR ratings costs lives.

Since GPS and the ability to "follow the magenta line" IFR ratings should be materially easier. There's no need for NDB, VOR or...

This is easy to read as a negative sign, especially since GA feels besieged by companies (mainly CASA & AsA) making life harder / slower. But the truth is that this sort of parts supply consolidation...

Ditto IFR really. Especially with the woeful cover outside the J curve and below 5,000 ft.

ADSB was to benefit the airlines, reduce AsA's capital costs of radar installations and allow AsA...

i don't think Dick is asserting that they were forced over high terrain. The crash site is pretty much on track.

It is known from the ATSB outline that ATC refused a request to enter the control...

Its really going to come down to your judgement. But I think you are right in looking for a level of comfort before you try. Why not look for another airport with a 7% slope and give it a...

Based on press quotes, its not all that friendly to airlines either. And I know the hire car companies don't consider it friendly and I'm pretty sure that the fuel company doesn't find it all that...

Mildura is a great place. I used to fly into Mildura monthly and loved it. But the current airport management are anti GA and I suspect are price gouging to benefit their own salary bonuses.
