Rub it in.. Nev
Once the hail and snow passed it was time to do some aerobatics.
What a cracker of a day for flying, clear and no bumps. Jumped in the Courier as a passenger with Simon flying and headed for Monduran. The Monduran aero club was holding its monthly meeting so there were plenty of people to meet and morning tea to be eaten.
For anyone that is interested the Isis flying club will be flying into Monduran next Sat morning around 0830. If your after an excuse to go for a flight come and join us.
Sat saw 4 Aircraft from the Isis Flying Club take to the skies for the short flight to Monduran (2 Jabs, 1 Lightwing, 1 Rans Courier). A club dinner around the campfire was also enjoyed by the members.
Scooted out to Biggenden today. Nice morning, thick fog to the south of Biggenden.
very nice one day I will own one of these myself.
Just because you blokes are making me jealous looking at pics of your 'draggers here's a snap of ours with the father in law giving it a proprietorial inspection. As a life long model aircraft builder and engineer I was pleased at his positive assessment.
Anyone interested in picking up an outstanding Rans Courier S-7S we have decided to put ours on the market. Details in the classified section, there are plenty of pics throughout this thread.
Hey, I'm not in a position to buy -but just loved the pics of your aircraft since the start of this thread. Why are you selling such a smart little plane after just four years ? Upgrading to something better? If i'd seen this a year ago i might have snapped it up...
Hope you get a quick sale and it goes to a good home
Thanks for the comments Alan. We purchased the aircraft from the original builder at the start of the year. He did a great job with the aircraft. I'm going to get back into doing some instructing so I'll be on the hunt for a suitable factory built aircraft. The Courier was ideal to get some Tailwheel experience, I still enjoy every minute flying it.
Nice morning for a short flight from Childers to Burrum Heads, short run along the beach and then a visit to Pacific Haven airfield on the way home.
A sunny Sunday morning, so out with the Courier for a flight past Elliott Heads, Bagarra & Burnett Heads. Then off to Monduran for a cuppa with Bruce from Pacific Haven who fly's a great looking Texan.
It was a nice morning yesterday so it was off to a mates property to have some fun in the courier. Might have to get myself some bigger tyres! This type of flying certainly puts a smile on your face.
Mr Fly, you have no idea how envious I am!
Hmmmm...........another case of wheel envy! We should have a new thread for "ridiculous" sized wheels.
Pilots Who Fly Tail Draggers are Gods of the Air, have Real Skills with Large Gonads!
Everyone who flew in the 50's flew a taildragger and thought nothing of it. What's changed? The planes are the same. Anyhow you do have to put extra effort into it or you will make a fool of yourself the minute you relax too much. It's not compulsory and tri gear made big planes civilised. We've discussed this matter at length in the past. They ARE easier to taxi through farm gates. Nev
Why? I would have thought they were more likely to be Gods of the Runway/Taxiway, surely once they (taildraggers) are in the air they are no different, it is on the ground where they will bite you.
I was going to say the same thing Geoff :)
