Enjoy your time there Chris! Stay safe and get a good recharge on your Ozzy accent!I am now in Aussie-land (arrived yesterday) at my Sunshine Coast apartment "home" - for the next month .... enjoying beach-time with Jason,Shelbie & 2 delightful grand-daughters!
I brought some of the broken parts from my Colorado friend's broken machine("Tess") in my huge suitcase ...to send to Neil for re-build/refurbishment! A small start to Tess's re-build process!
I doubt this year I'll go to Canberra as I did last year ... Neil & I will mail parts back & forth ....I have a good list of spare parts that Tim Weiland & I will stock for our TAG owners to bring back when I return.
I know every US TAG owner who got to meet Neil on his personal round-the-world service check on TAG tails was super impressed with his customer-care & knowledge of gyros and his design! (This was in 2018 after the ASRA inspection of the TAG crash at Orange was concerned about his tail-keel brace attachments!).
Jim,It's unlikely I will get to Australia again. R&R in 1967 and 1970 were the only time I visited, and I was an archetypical ugly American at the time. Fast forward a few decades. I'm more polished on the corners now and would love to meet the team that designed this neat aircraft.
I sure appreciate the advice and assistance you have given me Chris.
You went there to unwind and release some steam from tours of combat. Not the best of behavior, but expected.
I totally enjoyed my time in the Land of Oz. Great and fun people to be with.
