Planning continues for our Devonport TAS conference being held from 2nd to 4th March 2018.
WE have some exciting announcements as far as guest presenters and speakers. Our program is taking shape along the lines of feedback from members who attended Goolwa.
Devonport is a beautiful part of the world so please come and join us. Save the date now.
If you are planning any sort of Avionics upgrade including ADSB, or an upgrade to IFR, we will cover that. LOBO Oz is pleased to announce that Patrick Coleman, our Australian and New Zealand Sales Manager from Garmin, will be presenting at Devonport. An ideal opportunity to see the Garmin gear first hand and ask questions specific to us here in Oz.
Feedback from Oshkosh and from the joys of fault finding new avionics like the G3X etc. When you ring Garmin Support with your problem, the first question they ask now is: Do you have a fast stack hub installed. If yes they will ask you to call back when the hub is removed.
In the year 2000 this was a state of the art panel. Whilst it served this owner well it was time for an update.
Wow check this out. Yep the same aeroplane, just 17 years latter, and now state of the art again. All new centre stack including the GTN 750. Dual G3X touch and a G5 as backup. Flew it today and it is absolutely a fabulous and most capable panel.
Complete Avionics on the Goldy have done an exceptional job with a lot of pride taken in doing what they did.
The McCraken Country Club has now pretty much locked in our catering requirements, we will be well fed and I look forward to a wonderful weekend. If you are planning to attend and have not yet registered please let me know ASAP.
We have organised some good weather, even though Goolwa is starting to get cooler you can see our arrival day is advertised as being “Mostly sunny and pleasant”.
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. An absolutely fantastic experience to see how our big bore engines are manufactured.
The streets of Fairhope were decorated with “Yarn Bombing”, in support of the arts in Fairhope.
Very colorful, and most unusual, but fun.
A beautiful Legacy panel. Valin and Allyson Thorn took out the Grand Champion Kit Built award at Oshkosh this year – you can see why.
Nice finish, hey?
Plenty of eye candy at the LOBO landing.
It would be wonderful to see an Evolution in Australia. I am still buying lottery tickets.
