Group Photos

Posted: June 26, 2006 in Life in Adelaide
Yesterday, photo session.
 
Since our graduation date is approaching, we had to take a group picture.  Some of these pictures took several takes, cuz… it’s a group photo, you know how it is…  Especially the last one… It was hard, since we were standing face to face, we can help but burst into laughing hard hard…

Painful MOD 6

Posted: June 24, 2006 in Life in Adelaide
Who was it that said MOD6 is a breeze?  Breeze my ass…
 
It’s been a busy week.  I personally think the learning curve for MOD6 is kinda steep, one more engine, new check list, new enroute procedures, and lots of crap that we’ll never need once we go back…  It’s kinda painful, but the end is near, gotta stick thru it…
 
Nothing else is new really… Life is still the same…  Just counting the days left untill I can sleep in my own bed and sit in my own chair again.  Almost there…

Havn’t drawn anything for a while now…
 
My mind is blank… so I just drew what I feel like right now…  Not very exciting…
 
Oh yeah, it’s been freezing recently, and according to the news, it’s the coldest winter in Australia in 100 years!  So we been through the hottest summer in 60 years, and now the coldest winter… !$#%@#!…
 

World Cup

World Cup…  Never was a soccer fan… Probably never will…
 
But since it’s the world cup, I guess I should hop on the wagon and watch it… hee~
 
Here is a really funny video, non-soccer related~  CLICK HERE~
 
After being in Mod6 for almost a month now… I’ve now finally finished FOUR flights… My god… At this pace, I’ll be graduating in September!!   So this only means one thing, I’ll be rushing to the end with 2 sorties a day…  I hate being rushed…

A Change of Instructor

Posted: June 9, 2006 in Life in Adelaide
Yesterday, my flights were cancelled cuz I caught a cold.
 
Big news today, our coursemate Astrophil, suffered a REAL engine failure today at Strathalbyn aerodrome.  The word is that the cylinder head just blew off, oil everywhere.  Luckily, he was at 700′ so he had sufficient height to turn back and land.  He even had time to do a Mayday Call~  It’s times like this, that makes you think, what would you do if it happend to you… hmmm…
 
Anyway, so I flew my 3rd sortie today, simulated engine failure and really shut it down. It was fun~  Oh yeah, and now I’m flying with Mr. Fletcher, cuz Mr. Volum have to get David and Stanley to finish up their training first.  Well, no big deal, since Mr. Fletcher is a great guy~  Lucky me~
 
As for the question regarding what is 鋼之鍊金術師… it’s hard to explain eh… It’s basically about these ppl who can use spells/magic and turn things into other things… as long as they are made out of the same material… For example, they can turn a block of metal into a sword.  Check out their website www.fullmetalalchemist.com for details~ hee~

Multi-Engine

Yesterday, I flew my first sortie of MOD6Finally.
 
Flying in the Dutchess is not too much different, except you have two of everything now… Two engines, two mags, two HSI, two alternator, two…  But it still only have two wings, two elevators, two fuel tanks, and three landing gears…
 
The headline today was, our graduation might be moving up to July 14th.  One week earlier than it was scheduled.  It’s both good and bad I suppose…  We all get to go home sooner, but those of us who are a bit behind, will have to rush a bit to finish everything by then.  I’m not sure if it’s "official" yet, but I’ll keep everyone posted. 
 
Tomorrow, two flights, it’s good, but I think I caught a cold… shit…   Dayquil…

Brand New Week

Posted: June 5, 2006 in Life in Adelaide
So now that we have no groundschool at all, it’s quite… boring sometimes…
 
I finished this cartoon called 鋼之鍊金術師 Full Metal Alchemist, all 51 episodes…  I’m trying to download 海賊王 One Piece, but it’s soooooo slow…  I think I’m just gonna wait till I go back, cuz there are just too many episodes… almost 300 now…
 
Anyway, I havn’t flown since May 19th, the day I did my CPL check.  Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to fly, and at last start my Mod 6.  Crossing fingers…
 
Lastly, as most of you know… I’m a shopaholic… actually… no, I just WANT too many things…  My latest additon to my long long long list of "Things to Buy"Yamaha FZ6-N…  What to do… What to do…
