Log Keeping    My OLC Results    WA Records    Why Cunderdin    SZD 55 3000 Hour Inspection   

SZD 55 VH-XIFHaving been a coach for a number of years and having written a number of articles for both the West Australian clubs and the GFA magazine, in addition to finding some great articles from other pilots. I have decided to place these articles on the web for all to retrieve as they require.

Please look at the articles as you require, I hope that you can learn from them. If you are an early solo or cross country pilot, that is you have been flying only a few years can I suggest that you read, Speed and Angle of Bank as a priority.
