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

Editor's note: After reading that, I did a search and came
up with this, have a look:
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

And "New beginnings are sometimes disguised as

219. One Hour Winter Flight around
Kamloops, March 6, 2019
One-hour pleasant flight in the first above
the freezing temperature. Beautiful views of the hilly areas covered with
snow on North sides, while brown on the sunny sides.
218. Kamloops Loop Flight, March 1, 2019
It was almost nice day and especially after
unusually cold weather in Kamloops. This video shows Kamloops beauty from
the areas between Kamloops Lake and Mts Peter and Paul. One hour flight in 7
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!

It is serial#003. The aircraft is 75%
built. The fuselage is all finished with the canopy fitted. The ailerons,
rudder, elevators. horizontal/vertical stabilizers all built. All the ribs
for the wings are done, but the box spar needs to be built to finish the
wings. (All spar material included.) Some hardware and plans included.
All the work done is absolutely best quality.
$1,950. takes it away. I have invested over $5,000. in materials only.
I have no time to finish this and hence would like to pass it on to someone
who has. My loss your gain...
