Another interesting talk was given on Friday 5th April to the U3A at Hamersley. Included a drone demo flight and giving them a few images (No charge). Slight possibility some small jobs may flow from this as a few members came up to me afterwards seeking info/costs.

Another successful pre-purchase review completed earlier this week on a Learjet 35A for a new overseas client.
Great drive south from Perth for about two hours. Looking at a Cessna 182Q for a potential eastern states buyer. Great country folk on site looked after me.

Another interested audience of senior folk (I estimate there were about 70 there, mixed male/female) Some even younger than me). Had a lot of interesting questions ranging from “How do they fly?” to “Are you sure it’s not an extinct insect?”
Might get invited back next year for a chat on all things drones can do.
After a few years with AMROBA it was decided to not continue membership as there was determined to be no obvious ongoing benefit to PTA and the services it offers its clients.

On Tuesday 20th Feb. at The South of Perth Yacht Club, in Applecross I gave the Attadale Probus Club a quick talk about commercial operations of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (Aka Drones).
This was followed by a short demo flight around the SoPYC. The flight was of course formally approved by the SoPYC management.
An interesting safety issue was that the SoPYC had a regatta on and another drone was known to be following that. Additional caution was therefore required.
I believe the talk and demo flight were well received, I know the interest of many members was high.
I would like to thank the Attadale Probus Club for allowing me to give the talk and the nice bottle of red wine gift.
