First aerobatics

Stan Tilley took me flying in his Airtourer from Sandfly in April 2013. After a lovely tour along the coast Stan treated me to my first aerobatic experience over Hobart harbour. It was a great treat to be shown how it is done by a real master.

PAr Avion

The GA field for Hobart, just next to the International airport - so close they use the same tower.

Left Cambridge for a tour with Par Avion, www.paravion.com.au - to Melaleuca, a remote strip near Bathurst Harbour. It was just fantastic, this is really what flying is all about.

The wind! The only thing between here and the South Pole is a barbed wire fence, and it is mostly broken down. Great seafood though.
