Back in July 2014, I spent a great couple of days shooting a testimonial video about my Pilatus PC-12 aircraft. Here it is:
(Its also available on Vimeo – here)
This is the back story about making the video.
Today I passed my SE-CIR (Single Engine Command Instrument Rating) test in the great little Cirrus SR22 GTS Turbo I used to own (VH-YSH).
I had the opportunity to visit the Stemme factory in Strausberg this week, and to fly a Stemme S6-RT motorglider.
This is the most recent aircraft produced by the people who make my wonderful Stemme S10-VT.
This month I’m doing a research trip to Europe for various reasons.
I’ll be spending about one week in each of Germany, Switzerland and the UK.
Here are some impressions of the journey across the world from Adelaide to Frankfurt (via Dubai) on a Qantas/Emirates codeshare.
In June 2013 I flew for the first time into Sydney International Airport (YSSY) in the PC-12, and then flew back home to Adelaide a week later (with a video camera running).
Recently I took the editor of the Australian AOPA magazine, Kreisha Ballantyne, for a fly in my PC-12NG and she wrote a story about it for the magazine :)
She has kindly let me post the resulting magazine article online on my blog – so here it is!
