Super Decathlon Information

If you are doing a check-out in the Super D or a tailwheel endorsement you will need to complete CASA’s Single Engine Piston Aeroplane Endorsement Engineering, Data and Performance Questionnaire (modified).

IMPORTANT: It is a legal requirement for pilots to comply with the Airplane Flight Manual so it takes precedence over the Operating Manual but you will need both. There are errors in the Operating Manual especially regarding weight and balance (see SL 448 below). There are other differences between the AFM and the Operating Manual.

Super Decathlon VH-UPG is only available directly from Ozaeros and booked online at https://www.goboko.com/ORSignon.aspx – contact David for access at Contact.htm.

Pilots will need to sign the hire agreement prior to access to the aircraft. Note the dual check requirements: UPGdualchecks

This is an excellent short video for those new to the Super Decathlon or Standard Decathlon – Super Decathlon Cockpit Introduction I by Allan Moore. Note that we don’t wear parachutes so we will probably not need to jettison the door.
