Episode 319: Shoe horning aircraft into Amberley

Grant’s flying solo for this one after a hectic weekend of social fun. After a quick return to New Zealand news to talk about the Martin Jetpack company going for an IPO, he then covers some problems with CASA’s recent introduction of Part 61 licenses.

After that it’s on to the military and we’re wondering how the RAAF will fit their two new C17s into the available space at RAAF Base Amberley not to mention the new C27Js which we have just learned will eventually be based there as well. Anyone got a shoe horn? :)

Grant then wraps it all up with the news that the RAAF’s first two F35s have flown and are going through their acceptance flight tests before heading to Luke AFB next year for use with RAAF pilot training.
