Aviation Passenger Experience

I was inspired to share my passenger experience in aircraft – here it is as follows:

Name: Joseph Hupp
Location: Dubbo, NSW, Australia

Aviation Experience (Passenger): I have experience in many different aircraft types (rotary wing/helicopter and fixed wing) – aircraft I have flown in as a passenger are as follows:

Rotary Wing (Helicopter):
Bell 206B-3 JetRanger III

Bell 206B-3 JetRanger III – the JetRanger III was the first helicopter I had ever flown in….. the smell of burnt Aviation Turbine Fuel (AvTur) is one thing I will always remember!

Robinson R22/R44

TIF in a Robinson R22 – it is harder than it looks!
Robinson R44 Raven II VH-RIZ. This helicopter is the helicopter that keeps me in the air!

Eurocopter EC120B

Fixed Wing:
Bombardier Dash 8 (Q300/Q400)

QantasLink Bombardier Q400 VH-QOK

Embraer ERJ-135LR/ERJ190-100IGW

Embraer ERJ-135LR VH-JZG
Jetgo Australia Embraer ERJ-135LR VH-JZG

Boeing 737-800

Which aircraft is my favourite? If I had to choose one aircraft out of the above, I would have to say the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 is my favourite…. quiet, fast and fuel efficient, the Q400 is the best choice from a passenger’s viewpoint!

A review of the Great Whites 220mm 18 diode round LED driving lights

Great Whites 220mm 18 diode round LED driving lights in action…. Denning Decker TV5580

I recently had the opportunity to see a set of Great Whites 220mm round 18 diode LED driving lights in action – to say I’m really impressed is an absolutely true understatement! I truly like how quick these lights start up – almost instantaneously unlike a HID light which takes time to start…. another plus with these is that they use relatively little power on the circuit so they will not flatten your battery/ies if your alternator decides to cark it!

The light emitted from these is a crisp, white light which virtually mimics daylight – this allows you to see a wider view of any animals on the side of the road and can take appropriate action where possible as evidenced on this trip…

I would highly recommend these lights as they are the best! They may not be cheap (at $660 including GST per light – see Great Whites 18 LED Wide Angle Round Light for more info) but the extra initial expense gives you added safety!
