Well.. i haven't blogged in a while.. I didn't really know what to write.. but here are some pictures in the mean time!

For those who read this still (if there are any) i recently flew a Sydney to Gladstone routing, which is a long way, but had solid loads which was good to see.. Here are some photos from that.

For those other readers, Gladstone is 50nm south of Rockhampton in North Queensland. I didn't really realise how far away it is, and really is too long for a turboprop, even one with 'jet like speeds'. But i'm sure those who need to get to GLA without the need to transfer through Brisbane, would be a big time saver.

Northbound to GLA, Flightlevel 240

Various FMS shots on our 610nm epic journey!

Finally, landed at GLA.. Token prop shot from the foward door

Night time shot from cruising level FL250


  1. That's a pretty nice ride you've got there. If I understand your FMS, you're doing around 400 knots over the ground; not too bad. Nice to hear from you, and thanks for the pictures.

  2. Hi Wayne,

    Cheers for the comments, it was around 360 TAS and about 370kts over the ground at the best, with around 10kts tailwind the whole way. Im not sure the FMS shots show the wind.. that is on the NAV page, and the photos were from the fuel page, which is a good summary. There is a performance page too which gives ISA deviations and other things.

    email me at if you want and i can share some more things with you

  3. Cool to see you have all the weights in LBS. I would of thought QLK would chose the KGS option for weight displays.. Very cool shots, love following both the blog and your instagram!

  4. Hi,

    your Office is online for FSX :-)


  5. Hi,

    I always enjoy reading about your aviation career in my favourite part of the world. Thanks for a new post and the pictures!

    Cheers from Holland.

  6. Beautiful pictures! I really enjoy flying when I can. It's a totally different perspective. If you need some flight training in Concord, NC then check these guys out.
