Foxbat ferry flight – Tyabb to Townsville

VH-ZGQ handover

Foxbat VH-ZGQ hand over to Cleveland Bay Aviation

New Foxbat owners Cleveland Bay Aviation from far north Queensland, collected their white A22LS Foxbat VH-ZGQ from Moorabbin Airport on Thursday 17 September and departed to the north for their ultimate destination – Townsville. Pilots Adrian and Chris are taking the scenic route home, via all sorts of outback destinations.

Follow them on their Facebook page – click here: Cleveland Bay Aviation Facebook. As of writing they had stopped for the night in Hay, New South Wales, and the next day were approaching the Dig Tree, near Innamincka…envy, envy, regular subscribers may recall this was the intended destination for our recent outback trip, which ended with 4 days of bad weather at Broken Hill. See below for a list of the post links recording our progress – or lack of it!

When the aircraft finally arrives home, it will be put to work as a flight trainer. Contact Cleveland Bay Aviation via their website by clicking here: Cleveland Bay Aviation Website to book your flying lessons.

The aircraft is well equipped, with a full 10″ Dynon SkyView digital instrument panel, back-up analogue ASI & ALT, with Mode S transponder, fuel computer and high quality German VHF dual watch radio.

STOP PRESS! Sunday afternoon, 20 September; VH-ZGQ has arrived at its new base near Townsville. Well done Adrian & Chris for their 1300 nautical mile trip.
