    1641The Ice Maiden…

    When we decided to buy a white Tanarg the names started to roll in. We had “White Angle”, “White Virgin, “Ice Virgin”, and many more. However Anne decided that her aircraft would be called the Ice Maiden. This name has stuck. The Ice Maiden is a very nice aircraft indeed.

    Fly over Mt. Olympus with Ultralight trike

    September 13th, 2014

    I packed all survival gears in the passenger seat bag including a satellite beacon, bear spray, water and foods. I finished the pre-flight inspection on my trike night before the flight. In the next morning, I had a great weather to fly in the high altitude mountain ranges. Clouds from the last storm cleared up and air temp in high altitude got warmer. I took off the airport at 7:00 am. The wind aloft was 15 to 20 mph from the west. So, I climbed to 10,000 ft and stayed there to avoid mountain rotors from the peaks. The air was smooth but chilly. It was absolutely beautiful and magnificent flight. Mt. Olympus is the highest peak in Olympic National Park. Few glaciers, including Blue Glacier and Hoh Glacier flow down from the peak.

    Ice Bucket Challenge

    September 4th, 2014

    1285Tony and the Ice Bucket Challenge…

    This morning was the best time for a bucket of ice water over you head. The temp was only 1 degree, and then Tony added ice to the water and of course you only want to wear a footy jumper. All good to go and we were off. One pass only and the cold bucket of water over the head. WOW guess who is now really cold. Well done Tony and well done Beyond Blue.

    Flight Training in the XT-912 Arrow

    September 1st, 2014

    Trevor flies the Arrow…

    1484Trevor has been riding over from Deniliquin on a weekly basis for flight training. Trevor started flying in the Tanarg with the Bionix 13 wing. But now he is flying the XT-912 Arrow. It was a bit hard for the first hour as the XT-912 is quit different to fly and in some cases harder. But Trevor started to master the Arrow on Sunday and also the thermals. Trevor has also passed with flying colours the BAK, Air Legislation, Flight Radio, and Human Factor exams. Well done Trevor… Solo is next.
