QuikR Solo’s two new Student Pilots in a week…

Scott and Song both go SOLO in QuikR’s…

Two new student pilots at Yarrawonga Flight Training go Solo in the same week. Song from China was first to go solo. Song arrived from China only three weeks earlier and after arriving in Melbourne he hired a car and drove to Yarrawonga to start his training. Three weeks later after passing all his exams with the lowest score of 98% he went solo. Three days later and after flying another seven hours Song passed his flight test and became a pilot. Well done Song…

Jarrod from Deniliquin arrived at Yarrawonga Flight Training a few months ago and decided to go on a TIF (Trial Introductory Flight). I put Jarrod in the front seat and away we went. At the end of the flight Jarrod was hooked. He signed up for lessons and started a month later. Jarrod has all passed all his exams with a 100% pass make on all five exams. Today he went solo in his own QuikR. Well done Jarrod…

PulsR has a great flight

Great flight in the PulsR…

Today was one of those days that the PulsR just loves. I nice clear morning with a light 10kt breeze from the south. It had been a month since the PulsR was last flown. Not because I didn’t want to fly it. I just have had to many students to get the time to take the PulsR up. But today was the day. No student for an hour. It to go. Pre-flight complete and start-up checks done, the engine fires into life. It didn’t take long for the PulsR to warm up and I taxied the PulsR to RWY 19. Calls made and we entered the RWY and applied power. Off we went down the RWY. At 50kts we rotated and climbed away at 1000 feet per minute. In no time at all the PulsR was cruising at 2500 feet. What a flight. in no time at all the hour was up and I could see the student arriving, so down we came and joined the circuit for RWY 19. Down and clear all runways, and back to the hangar. One really good flight to start the day.

HypeR & QuikR’s are almost finished.

P&M Aviation Australia’s new HypeR & QuikR’s are just about ready…

P&M Aviation in the UK have been working at an amazing pace to get P&M Aviation Australia’s new aircraft ready for shipment. The new HypeR has had many modifications done by Dr Bill Brooks the designer to make it even better. These new developments will now be added to any new HypeR that will be built and come off the production line in the future. The engine is about to be added and then flight tests begin.

P&M Aviation Australia’s new QuikR’s are at the same stage. The silver QuikR is now ready to ship and the Orange QuikR as seen in the photo is ready for it engine. This should happen very soon and then flight test will be done. Delays have occurred due to the Service Bulletin 147. This has had a huge impact of the factories resources. The SB147 was all about older Q2 wing and some of the GT450 wing that are over 10 years old. You can read up on the SB147, under SB147 on the website. The factory contacted all owner of affected wings and the cables were replace ASAP. The factory is now back to normal and aircraft production is getting back to normal. There is a new PulsR being built and P&M Aviation Australia has now ordered another three new QuikR’s.

P&M Aviation HypeR panel

The HypeR instrument panel is ready…

Our flagship aircraft is almost ready to be shipped to Australia. The instrument panel is now complete and looks outstanding. This aircraft will have the new Trig radio and Transponder fitted whan it arrives in Australia. The new panel has also been designed for the new GARMIN AERA 660 GPS and GDL39-3D to be installed on it. The second picture shows the rear of the instrument panel. You can see the result of having aviation professionals building an aircraft compared to others who use automotive products where they can, to reduce their building costs. This makes this aircraft one of the most modern and safest Trikes in the world, ever! The HypeR has been named by most people that have seen it, and we will call this aircraft the “HypeR Tiger”. This aircraft is the first off the production line and the designer Dr Bill Brooks has been making a number of small improvements along the way, which is why our HypeR has taken longer than expected to get here. The latest improvement is to the foot pedals, to make it more comfortable. Test flights are only days away. So keep watching for more photos….

Richard goes SOLO

Richard goes SOLO…

Richard did his first solo flight in his Tanarg yesterday. Well done Richard. Its not easy when you work on a Ship. The time off needs to be managed between being at home and looking after home life…. But then there is flying! So Richard drives down from the Central Coast of NSW and spends a week doing his flight training and then heads home and back out to sea. This week was different. Richard was flying around doing circuits at Yarrawonga working at his conversion to his Tanarg, when CFI Peter said “Can we stop now?” Richard did a full stop landing, and CFI Peter just got out! Before he disconnected the comms he said to Richard, “Off you go and have fun”! Richard had a bit of a stunned look on his face, then off he went and 5 circuits later CFI Peter asked Richard to land as everyone wanted to go to dinner….! Life is not ALWAYS meant to be difficult… is it!
