People love to argue and yr right nothing to argue about!As I said, going for a lone flight in the middle of nowhere complies with current government restrictions as advertised on the government website. Nothing to argue about.
No not virtue signalling just accuracy. I cant stress enough it is not a flu virus. And in order to distinguish it from other epidemics we need to give it its actual nsme. I am assuming people are finding it difficult to remember SARS cov-2 which causes covid 19. Using innacurate terminology just makes the user look dim and uninformed.Like calling it the Spanish flue? Irony probably started in the USA but anyway.
China flu has nothing to do with race its a geographical location and it is where it started (wet markets). Virtual signaling your "moral" values is ridiculous. I preferr to use Kung Flu.
The name does not matter unless you work in a lab. Virtue signaling make someone look like a proper d%^$k.No not virtue signalling just accuracy. I cant stress enough it is not a flu virus. And in order to distinguish it from other epidemics we need to give it its actual nsme. I am assuming people are finding it difficult to remember SARS cov-2 which causes covid 19.

Spanish flu is a brilliant example of misleading naming.
Is there any particular reason you prefer to cali it "Chinese flu" rather than the actual name?
Read the government websites instead of forums, social media and MSM.It is unclear what we are allowed to do here in Victoria. Travel is limited to essential travel. But ABC local radio this morning suggests we drive into the country and walk a rail trail. I would like to go flying tomorrow. I'm sure it is OK with CASA etc but is it essential? It must fall into the same category as any pleasure driving or motorcycle riding (which I am unsure about). We are not yet in lock down, the streets in our town and the shops are quite busy. Confusion reigned, and we all got wet.
It was probably chasing the jetstream for a faster, cheaper sector or was just admiring the beauty of the “Apple Isle”I don't think the coronavirus should have much affect our little planes. Don't they help maintain social distancing?
But, have anybody been watching Flightradar? I'm in South Tasmania where we only hear jets when they are bombing fires. Just now a jet overflow - it is a Qatar 777 going from Auckland to Doha - not sure why it came so far south. Still plenty of jets in the air in spite of all the gloom about routes being closed.
And what does it say about private flying? I cannot figure it out.Read the government websites instead of forums, social media and MSM.
An apparent outlier...So what is "supposition" here?
I have not seen any epidemiological evidence of this but perhaps you can point me in the direction of some evidence...
Machtuk if you get covid19 and die will you be singing the same song. If more than 20% of the population have a similar mindset it could happen.People love to argue and yr right nothing to argue about!
Humans are herd animals we ain't gunna just lie down quietly and take this over the top restrictive nonsense!
Absolutely nothing as long as you abide by the the conditions mentioned.And what does it say about private flying? I cannot figure it out.
So what are the complication and fatality statistics? In order for you to declare this an outlier you must surely be al over the statistics. Whilst most yoing people will not be badly affected it us about protecting others, your older family members perhaps? Just as important is protecting the health system.An apparent outlier...

Heh, I tell pax the black knob is the volume control - push forward for more noise...If I got into conversation with a stranger about aviation and they referred the the aircrafts accelerator rather than the throttle I would probably dismiss what they had to say or at least realize that they were certainly not knowledgeable on the subject.
Well, I thought the thread title described what the subject matter is.........although, around here threads do wander a bit..The virus is Cov-2 it causes the Covid 19 illness.
The use of inaccurate terminology detracts from any point you are trying to make. I am wondering why you believe china flu or china virus is better or more accurate language to use? Apart from the fact that calling it flu is just incorrect even calling it china virus is hopelessly vague especially after this is over. How will people know whether you are referring to SARS of 2003 or any other illness that was first detected in that country.
Oh by the way where did the Spanish flu (N1H1) originate? (probably not where you think)
PMcC Have a look at what Jenny Macklin (Victorian Minister for Health) said this morning, and then have a look at the six or eight categories of essential.Absolutely nothing as long as you abide by the the conditions mentioned.
Flying by yourself is a perfect activity for this occasion, even better if it’s your own aircraft.
The aircraft I work on at the moment are now required to have the cockpit disinfected after every flight between crew changes.
If I get it I get it, we each are owed a death, get over it!
I agree you are owed death with that attitude. But what about those you infect due to your arrogance?If I get it I get it, we each are owed a death, get over it!
