Trike Flight

by Garth Zabell

Thank you Katrin.

I am planning to fly Cape York in my ultralight trike.

Your book is great.

Do you know any fliers up there?

Hi Garth,

Thank you :-)

The only thing i might be able to help with is that the south easterlies make the eastern coast very windy in the dry season.

Other than that - anyone got the same interest?

Flying around the Northeast
by: Duncan

Dear Garth,

I have been given your name by Katrin Holmsten of the Destination Cape York guidebook who has been very helpful.

I realise flying a trike is not the same thing as a C172 which is what I hope to use for around the northeast of Australia preferably starting near Brisbane or a bit further north.

I am more than aware that, under the present circumstances, considering such a venture is out of the question but organising such trips takes a lot of time so I am doing a bit of early research. I foresee a one to three week trip with my girlfriend around that area within the next year or two.

I have designed a tentative route which I could send you if you are interested. I would be interested in any advice on your proposed route or where to rent a C 172 somewhere in the NE or people to contact about such a flying trip.

At the moment travel anywhere is almost out of the question. I have contacted a few flight schools in the Brisbane area and have yet to settle on somewhere who rents these planes for a reasonable sum.

I could give you my email if you would prefer to contact me directly so this way we dont have to bother Katrin.

Hope to hear from you,


Thank you Duncan,

It got a bit busy, i will definitely reply to your email in the next few days :-)
