Why Low-Flying is Simply Not Worth the Risks!

This video should make you think twice about low-flying. The pilot is VERY lucky to have survived.

The accident is at 3:40

Keep it safe guys!

What's happening with the weather?

Am I the only one who cannot understand what is happening with the weather? I have never experienced such consistently K@K weather in November and December in the northern reaches of country (Gauteng and North West). Yesterday morning was flyable, but these are very small windows of opportunity. Any...

Re: Garmin Updates - Software and Jeppesen Charts

Also your links don't work? I don't know why Micolighters hijacks the links to have a 'www.microlighters.co.za' before the actual link, but I have changed how they are displaying, so just copy them out into a new tab. This is what I get when I click the link, which makes absolutely no sense: www. m...

Re: Aquilla 582 price

KP, it would be easier to put a price to it with some photos.

Do you have any you could post?

Also, is the 582 a silver top or blue top? (photos should show this)

Garmin Updates - Software and Jeppesen Charts

If like me, you haven't updated your Garmin software or Jeppesen charts in a while, I thought I would share these links and guidance to make your life a little easier. I took me a little while to find all the links again, so hopefully, this helps: Garmin Software Update >> Go to Garmin website >> ww...

Exhaust Maintenance for Rotax 582

I certainly had never seen what the inside of the Rotax 582 exhaust looks like, so thought I would share this, along with quite a good article on exhaust maintenance.

Re: 582 / 503 Exhaust Muffler x 2 for sale

Does this fit below/beyond the normal exhaust system?

What effect does it have on noise reduction, and is there any impact on power output?

Re: New Runway at Kokoriba

Yes, I flew over it again last week and you certainly have to be very alert for the two opposing circuits, both of which could potentially be active. Depending on the wind direction, any combination of the two runways could be in use. Personally, I feel that to have two runways for different lodges ...

Flying Wingboard undergoes wind tunnel testing!

What do you think of this invention? Looks fun, but I somehow don't think it will be that simple to learn, or master . . . if it ever becomes legal! ## Read about it HERE: Successful wind tunnel testing brings flying wakeboard closer to takeoff If you've ever peered out across the wing from a plane ...

Hi Gavin, I cannot read the repack date from the photo.

Is it 'March 2014', so in the past?

Thanks, John
