With just over 400 hours on my plane, today it was time for yet another oil change. While I was at it I installed an oil drain valve on my Jabiru 3300 engine. In the future this will allow me to change the oil without removing the bottom cowling.


After the oil change I went for a 130 mile flight. There was an overcast at 3,000 today so this was a low and slow flight over the coastal mountains and out over the ocean.

You can download a Google earth re-flyable here.

Below is a screen shot of my flightpath.

Your doing a great job of it to it has been top weather down here in Tasmania for flying for some time now I keep looking up and dreaming but in all fairness I only started my kit on the 1st of June 2008 and have done well to be where I am already
