The Adventures of Air Queensland Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Cheiftan VH-XLB!

Over the early part of this week, it appeared that Air Queensland Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain VH-XLB may have completed a series of training flights, which included several landings and airwork at several Central Queensland Airports.

On Sunday 29 January, VH-XLB departed its Redcliffe base for Cairns, flying via Maryborough, Gladstone, Mackay, Bowen and Townsville Airports.

After remaining parked overnight at Cairns, on Monday 30 January, VH-XLB completed a local flight, before later departing again to Mackay Airport.

Then on Tuesday 31 January, VH-XLB departed Mackay Airport and was noted at Gladstone Airport where it took on fuel.  VH-XLB then returned to Redlciffe.

What an adventure!

We've mentioned previously that Air Queensland is a Redcliffe based Flying Training and Air Charter company that operates a variety of RA-Aus and VH- registered single and twin-engine aircraft including (but not limited too) Sling, Tecnam, Jabiru, Cessna and Piper aircraft.  Air Queensland also operates from Caloundra, and more recently, in conjunction with the Bundaberg Aero Club, is now providing flying training (including RA-Aus) and private aircraft hire at Bundaberg Airport.
