Flying in Australia

Hey Cam.

Just a big thumbs up on the TVSAC still going strong after all these years.

I’ve been following for a very long time and though I haven’t flown in 20 + years, I still enjoy browsing the listings and reading the stories.

I will one day reclaim those heady days that I used to enjoy in my youth when I flew regularly across Bass strait to King island and around Byron Bay Down Under.

Life just gets in the way and before ya know it, ya got kids and a mortgage and blah blah blah.

I bought a little sign business a few years back and I’m trying to, ( excuse the pun ), not just get it off the ground but get to a comfortable cruising altitude where I can flip the auto pilot let it fly itself while I get my own set of wings back.

Later! 

Cheers, Andrew.

About Dennis
 
I guess everyone knows by now that Dennis Seib had a motorcycle accident in Phoenix. Those following him on Facebook probably saw picture of his injuries.   But he is already hopping  around, proof that you can't keep a good man down!
 
I just came across some quotes that I forwarded to Dennis; they are by adventure photographer Krystle Whight.  "I'd rather live with scars than regrets."    And  "New beginnings are sometimes disguised as painful endings."

217. Kamloops Local Flight, Feb. 15, 2019

Finally! It was almost warm at -5C. We had unusually cold and windy 2 weeks of weather. This day the sun was peeking through after about 6cm of fresh snow. After clearing the snow from my long access road to runway, I decided to take my bird for some fresh air. It was a beautiful flight with no wind or turbulence. I flew just around Kamloops until my feet were cold in about 40 min. About one hour after I landed, removed all the GPS's, cameras and other stuff, the weather became absolutely perfect with blue sky and no wind. I should stay longer, but did not. Well, hope for the next time!

All the ribs for the wings are done, but the box spar needs to be built to finish the wings. (All spar material included.)
