LOBO Landing Fairhope Alabama

Fairhope was a wonderful venue for the recent LOBO event.  The landing was primarily maintenance related and included a full tour of the nearby Continental Motors factory.

The streets of Fairhope were decorated with "Yarn Bombing"

Very colorful and most unusual but fun.

ADSB In and Out Solution from Lynx.

I have just returned from the LOBO Landing in Alabama. I had a good look at this Lynx TXP and like it. Here is an ADSB In and Out solution that will work down-under.

Latest technology digital TXP with approved WAAS GPS built in. So even for the VFR guys this is a smart way to go for situational awareness and being able to see other ADSB Traffic. Obviously the UAT and 978 features do not work in Oz.

Details about LOBO USA membership

LOBO OZ has been formed as part of the parent company for the very reasons which LOBO USA promotes:

“The Lancair Owners and Builders Organization (LOBO) promotes the safe use of Lancair Aircraft through education, training and fostering communication between members. LOBO safeguards and furthers its members’ interests with regulatory agencies, the general aviation community and the public at large.”

– Welcome page/ Lancair Owners and Builders Organization, http://www.lancairowners.com/

This is why we encourage you to actually join LOBO USA. By joining the parent company, Australian enthusiasts will be able to access a wealth of knowledge, training and resources otherwise unavailable to most of us, and to reciprocate by sharing our own experiences here downunder!

Membership is inexpensive, but provides access to valuable resources, contacts and networking opportunities, both here and overseas.

For membership, see: http://www.lancairowners.com/join/.

LOBO Downunder

Here is an excerpt from the LOBO USA website:

Fred along with other Lancair owners have asked if they could form an Australian affiliate or chapter of LOBO. Given their common objectives in maintaining technical knowledge about these aircraft and in working with the CASA (Australian FAA) on safety, licensing and airworthiness certification, this seems like a no-brainer.

It seems we will soon be a recognised chapter of LOBO! and hopefully also registering on a world map!

And of course, joining LOBO US is amazing value to all of us ‘downunder’! Join now!!
