The ebb and flow of competition aerobatics in Australia.
Saturday, September 3, 2011
Another fine day in Foligno. Serious discussion has taken place regarding moving the Oz Nats here....?
Flying recommenced on the Q programme, and that was done by lunch. Standout flights were Nicolas Ivanoff, Mikhail Mamistov and Tom Cassells. Final scores for the Q are out, and unfortunately we are in the last group of three. This means both Rich and Paul will fly their Free this arvo, and the warm-up pilot is out right now. The judges are south, direction of flight to the west.
Married with three kids and a very understanding wife. Mad keen on flying as long as I can remember. Learnt to fly with a retired 707 Check Captain in a 182 out of his paddock. BE(AerO) UNSW '87. Earnt my 'wings' in the RAAF in 1988, ~4500hrs now. Gr3 Instructor, CAR-155 Delegate to issue LLP to Surface. Fly aerobatics for the skills, fun and currency as there is no money in it and I'll never be World Champion, so why fuss? Won some, lost more!
