AirServices Australia / Pearl Aviation Super King Air VH-FIY "Auscal 03" Completes Airwork and Lands at CQ Airports

On Monday 5 October, AirServices Australia / Pearl Aviation Hawker Beechcraft B300 Super King Air VH-FIY was noted passing through Central Queensland.  It looked to complete a navigational aid (nav aid) check at Gladstone Airport before flying up to and landing at Rockhampton Airport.

VH-FIY then departed Rocky via more nav aid testing at Rockhampton Airport before then flying up to Townsville and eventually Cairns.  VH-FIY was heard to be using its usual radio callsign of "Auscal 03".

This afternoon Eclipse 500 N257AK flew down to Archerfield and back to Shute Harbour. 

Meanwhile, also on Monday 5 October, Brisbane-based Hewitt Cattle Australia P/L SOCATA TBM 700 VH-PGA visited Moura Airport from its Archerfield base.

And finally, also on Monday 5 October, the often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted completing a return flight to Archerfield and then back to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.  It had arrived into the Whitsundays over the weekend.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 8 October, N257AK departed the Whitsunday Airport for Archerfield at the conclusion of another weekly visit!
