Departed Caboolture Thanks to Chris & Doug from the Rotary Club of Caboolture for picking us up & getting access to the airfield gates. It made our morning very easy.
Rest Day = Catchup & Fixup Anything Day Like all other rest days for us so far, the rest day has been very busy & it gives us a chance to catch up on emails & all the non-flying stuff that we don’t get a chance to do & fix anything that needs fixing.
I woke up today feeling quite lousy & my hunch was right – I had the dreaded urinary tract infection (UTI). This is something people with quadriplegia & paraplegia often get. And when you do, it knocks the crap out of you. I’m glad I’m sick or else I was going soft. Fortunately my doctor […]
Leaving Bairnsdale It was great to spend time with members of the East Gippsland Aero Club who really helped us out. We got down to the Bairnsdale Airfield early & we were ready to leave around 9.30 am. It was great to also meet a talented flyer, Chloe Higgins. At 9 years of age, she […]

With all the preparations last week & everything being so hectic, it was great to have a day in which I could sleep in & catch up on much needed sleep. Linda & I have been so exhausted with getting everything ready for the trip.
I’ve had a leaking o-ring on one of the cylinders in the engine for quite awhile so as the On a Wing & a Chair Round Australia flight is approaching, it needed to get fixed. My trusty mechanic Geoff, who built & installed all my aircraft adaptations, fixed it during the week.
The 3rd Australian Disabled Pilots Association fly-in was held at the Temora Airfield in NSW from the 2-4 November. The association was formed by a group of like minded disabled pilots, and each year they get together to chat about developments in adaptations, aircraft and just do some flying. This year the fly-in was held […]
