welcome back to the vlog and welcome back to beautiful papua new guinea we’re out today at a jungle runway and we’re heading back to garoka but on the way we’re going to go ahead and stop by another place just to fly over and check to see if they’ve cut the grass because i’m going in there next monday and i want to make sure that it’s cut before i waste my time going out there so let’s go ahead and get started and uh get on our way all right igniter’s on a fuel pump is on everything’s back and low start i just shut down a minute ago so i’m letting the itt get all the way down below 200 before i introduce my fuel otherwise it has a big loud pop in the compressor when i introduce the fuel all right itt’s coming up a little quicker this time just because it’s pretty hot let’s just let me know my alternator generator are turned off if you’re wondering why that beeps all right generators on prop forward, alternator on aux bus strobes landing and pulse light and our v2 tracker 20 degrees of flaps and set up my trim for takeoff but let’s get these blowers going cause it’s so hot 101 degrees 100 degrees in here right now yeah a little warm anyways my name is Ryan and i hope you guys enjoy this flight it i’m going to be flying up the jimmy valley and it’s just such an incredible beautiful valley and so you guys don’t want to miss out for that because it’s a really really cool cool valley on the way back to Goroka all stations Mariama 126.7 november tango echo taxing Mariama for Goroka one one thousand all right everything is clear there’s no kids around if you’re interested in watching a landing at this place here i have another video up here if you guys want to go check that out the swamp landing is what i called the video it looks like they just cut this just recently maybe last week and then all these burn marks you’re seeing out on the runway are just all the leftover grass they pile it up and then burn it it’s a lot easier than raking it off i guess and then it just kind of slows sort of slows the process down for just more grass to grow up all right we’ll go ahead and line up and then now we’ll start going through our checklist fuel caps are good and selectors are both on our controls are good our good our TAWS is now turned off which is our terrain awareness system so that betty doesn’t yell at us when we take off that there’s terrain ahead switches and instruments so we’re empty today so my aux page tells me my weight so right now with the fuel amount of fuel i have on board i’m at 5450 lbs so rotate speed is going to be 54. i set that up with my timer reference come down to my vref actually come on down here to the v climb that’s going to be our rotate speed today at 54 knots and our v-ref is 65 if for some reason we had to come back in and land initially we’ll be just remaining under 5 000 feet to Yombaitok where we’re gonna go check the grass and then we’ll jump up to jimmy valley and then probably just go up to 9000 and go up the Wahgi valley at my mount hagen area because if you do you can’t really do a direct track because well there’s just a lot of let me just bring it up and show you real quick why so i’m starting out here just kind of on the edge of the Sepik where the little blue dot is and i’m going to be flying over here to Yombaitok and then up this valley here so let me get uh so we start here fly up then we fly up this little valley here and then more than likely we’ll kind of come up that way down the Wahgi valley onto chimbu and then onto Goroka now the reason why i’m specifically going down this way because all these mountains right here are like 12 13 000 feet and then goes all the way up to like 15 000 feet right there um at our highest mountain that we have mount wilhelm so anyways that’s kind of the track i’ll be doing today because yeah all the mountaintops have usually buildups and weather and it’s just impassable this time of day finish up this we did our switches and our instruments our flaps are set at 20 indicated and verified on both our trims are set we’re going to be 40 knots because we are empty we’re going to be 40 knots uh by the burn marks right up here uh if we’re not 40 knots or we need to stop for any other reason it’s full reverse heavy braking flaps up cut off pull off and shut off if we are going off and crack our door if we’re going off for any reason we’ll just go straight ahead at the end of the runway or if someone had to go off for any other reason off to the side both sides are pretty much the same but i go off to the right side because there’s some houses on the left all right igniters are on strobes lights

bypass can’t get SAR today i don’t know what it is with the past like two weeks we just we cannot get a hold of search and rescue with hf i don’t know if there’s a sunflare maybe a few hf guys know you can leave a comment down below there is something going on and it’s just not working all right we are 35 degrees and sea level pretty much so 1520 ft pounds so 1470 for 1520 all right ignition condition flaps 20 fuel and harnesses 1470 rotate 54. and that’s checklist complete all right 1470 there we go and a tiny bit of back pressure there’s 40 knots here’s the burn mark continuing there’s 50 54. just kind of lower the nose get my speed up and then climb on out 740 on the itt and just climbing out around 80 to 85 knots all right beautiful lake out here i’ve actually spent some time out here a few years ago for a weekend it was really really hot but it’s a really cool little lake there’s lots of crocodiles in this lake all right we’ll make a 180 and start climbing up to 5000 feet over 85 knots reduce to 10 degrees of flap pull back a little bit on the yoke just a tiny bit as the nose wants to drop down and over 90 and climbing we will go zero degrees of flaps our passengers through a thousand foot now bring our prop back down to 2000 rpm which brings our itt from 740 right down to 720 or very very close so i’ve got five more degrees to pop it down just a little bit more so Yombaitok is the first place and i think it’s about 20 minutes away something like that so let’s get cleaned up first turn our landing light off our engine inlet into normal and our igniters are turned off all right it speeds up to 130 knots indicated now i’m gonna bring my torque on back and because we’re pretty close to sea level we’re only 2200 feet rather than bringing my torque back to 1250 i’m actually going to go off of my fuel flow and bring that back to 320 the reason being is we do all of our calculations off of a fuel flow of 320 and because i’m closer to sea level i don’t need as much torque to produce as much power so i’m only at 1120 pounds of torque but i’ll still be cruising nearly at the same speed anyways let’s go ahead and do our departure call see if i can actually get a hold of him or not Madang 126 decimal seven NTE alright amazing we actually got a hold of them i’ve been struggling to get a hold of these guys all day today it seems i’ll put this little map up here up in the corner uh just so you guys can follow along if you guys do like that leave a comment down below if you like it uh if you think it’s annoying and uh i think it’s not really necessary i think it’s pretty cool because you can kind of follow along and get an idea of a little bit more where i’m going as a valley as i’m kind of going up it gives you just a clearer picture i think so if you do like it leave a comment down below i’d really appreciate it so if you guys want to fly this after you’ve seen this video and you think oh man that’d be so cool to fly on my sim i’ll leave the the details down below where you guys can start like your flight right in this area and then fly up the valley it’s super pretty it’s just a really nice wide valley not a lot of trees on the mountains really really cool looking so just go down in the description down below if you’re interested in doing something like that i’m just going to go ahead and bring up the strip chart here just so we know what the altitude we’re going to at Yombaitok the elevation is 500 feet so i can set this up here i’m going to set it

at i think 1100 feet is going to give me basically gonna fly over top of the field down this valley and then just drag the airstrip 20 degrees of flaps and 80 knots so that i can see if it’s cut i have a little more time to maneuver and that way i’m basically maneuvering the same way i would be as if i was just taking off out of there the runway is gonna be runway two one and zero three so you can’t really see we’re gonna come around the mountain and basically come like we were taking off on runway 21 all right we’re just six miles out um i told Madang that i’d be there at 55 which is in about 10 seconds oh before i get further on into this valley i’m going to go ahead and report where i am and let him know where i’m heading up next Mandang 126.7 NTE position NTE Yombaitok this time i’ll climb 9000 for the Tremaine gap estimating Tremaine gap 16 following the waghi valley for Goroka standby, uh let me see he wants to know if i’m going to be going into Hagen’s airspace at all i’ll stay outside of it NTE will be remaining octagon all right yeah he just wanted to know if he needs to transfer me over to the Hagen tower but i’m going to be really close to the edge so i’m just going to stay out of their air space as i go by should be no issues it’s a beautiful day out so Yombaitok is just right there what we’re going to do is going to fly around the valley and then fly down the airstrip at 80 20 setup so i’m gonna get my prop forward that way i can get a nice long look to see if the grass has been cut from side to side the full length we had some issues out here with the grass not being cut and then the people on the ground giving the wrong information to our people that want to go there it looks like they’ve cut the whole thing but i really want to make sure because i don’t want to waste another flight out here all right blow 138 knots with margin we go 10 degrees of flaps we’ve got my prop pull forward we’ll go 20 here shortly and slowing down to 80 knots we’ll go up this little tight valley and then fly on down right over top all right 20 degrees of flaps i’ve got 11 knots coming up the valley so my climb out should just be really easy it might be bumpy just on the other side of this hill as well there’s 87 knots looking for 80 to 85 knots there’s the updraft and there’s the bumps and downdrafts i’m actually going to bump it up to 85 to 90 give myself a little bit more margin because of the potential downdrafts bouncing me all around all right get off to the side a little bit so i can see all right it looks like it has been cut there’s one section right there for some reason they didn’t cut very well i’m not sure why but the rest of it looks really good though all right power up 720 ITT go straight ahead rather than trying to turn it so we’re at a good altitude at 20 degrees of flaps climbing at 1800 feet i’ll well clear that so i’m going to go ahead and make my turn out this is why guys you guys practice your 45 degree banks and keeping yourself coordinated we actually do it all the time all right so we’re going to go ahead and follow up this giant valley right here i go 10 degrees of flaps over 110 so go zero and bring my prop back down to 2000 rpm this is a jimmy valley as it goes up and like i said if you want to fly this on

your sim it’s a really really pretty valley you can fly up and fly back down and uh yeah just gorgeous gorgeous views the river probably not quite the same on a simulator you don’t have quite the detail but nonetheless it’s just such a gorgeous place to fly all right it’s smoothing out now we’ve got four knots we’ll remain at 2000 and our slow climb up to 9000 like we told medeng pretty much you can follow this river all the way up and that’s pretty much what we’ll do just so we can stay out of the Mt. Hagen air space we’ll follow this river all the way up here and then we’ll jet across over top of the Tremaine gap or the i think it’s called the Kimal gap just up the way a little bit further into the wahgi valley and then we’ll follow the wagy valley up to chimpu into garoka and that’s probably going to be the easiest route that we can have i mean again it’s gorgeous out today but you can see there’s just a lot of clouds on top of the ridges touching the ridges so getting from one side to the other is a little bit more difficult and the probably the cloud tops today are going to be probably 14 to 16 000 feet so it’s easier just to shoot for the gaps and then just go up the big wide valleys all right we’re at 900 000 now picking up our map so you can see where we are according to the pelican space we’re going to just stay outside of that so basically kind of more tracking for the camel cab i’m level at 9000 so i’m going to go ahead and bring my torque back down to 1250 foot-pound of torque my prop is still set at 2000 it looks like we might be able just to pop right through directly through the Kimal gap staying right at nine thousand so that’d be great Madang 120.1 NTE all right so he’s coming in more from that way coming into the valley and working his way down so now that i’m kind of just over top of these i’m just gonna go ahead and drop back in i can see uh the traffic he’s more up towards that area and he’s still about two thousand feet over so all stations in the waghi valley kodiak NTEis now leaving one one thousand on decent 9 thousand tracking Chimbu Goroka, I’m going to go ahead and make an area call because this is a fairly busy area all stations the waghi valley one two zero decimal one kodiak november tango echo overhead Chimbu non-standard 8500 tracking goroka via the Warabung, estimating goroka circuit four five there’s a lot of helicopters that track from Goroka on up to Mt. Hagen in this area so because i’m kind of at a non-standard altitude because i’m going to be descending here in just a couple of minutes anyways contact tower one five NTE and we’re about 20 miles out so i’m going to go ahead and start up my checklist, selectors and brakes are good our TAWS is turned off currently our vref our approach speed yes it is bumpy five thousand so at the slowest we’ll do 61 knots i’m going to be coming in the Warabung

which basically just means like where the heads of the water is basically like bung means to like group together and Wara obviously means water so anyways i’m heading to the warabung and he’s heading to the Kaw kaw he’s getting there four minutes after me but again i’m just gonna let him know that i’m gonna be tracking for the Warabung. all stations Warabung area and Kaw kaw gap november tango echo from Chmbu Goroka, 8500 tracking for the warabung goroka four five and set up my 118.7 for Goroka tower we’ll call them now NTE, BJD We are inbound from Nomane, ?????? Kaw kaw gap, Goroka 49 Goroka Tower, good afternoon NTE NTE Goroka Tower Go ahead NTE 15 miles to the west eight thousand five hundred on descent via the warabung copy traffic, Nomane Goroka via the Kaw kaw 1017 track report left base three five right NTE all right our vref has been set up i’ll throw our bypass on and our light is on abort if we do need to go around we’re power up 20 degrees pitch for 73 maneuver as required come back around all right prop and harness we’ll do harness here auto pilot off and start our descent i’m gonna go ahead and OBS the runway not that i need to but that’s a good habit, it makes it easier so i can see the line for the uh runway i’m within 11 miles or so i’m gonna go ahead and slow down because of these hills, they are notorious for being super bumpy now that we’re um of past most of the bumps usually i’m gonna go ahead and speed back up so that our arrival time isn’t any later than what we told them because we have another airplane or helicopter i’m not sure coming in just three miles that way tower november tango echo is 4.5 miles out at this time below138 knots 10 degrees of flaps my landing light on bypass in flaps to go turning final 5600 november tango echo entering left base runway 35 right below 120 knots, 20° of flaps BJD has NTE visual and have 5 miles to run I’m pretty high so I am going to go full flaps alright we want 61 at the slowest because I’m going to have a five knots quartering tailwind on landing i’m just gonna come in at 70 knots because there’s gonna be some downdrafts and stuff so it’s like a 2500 foot or more runway so no dramas alright flaps are done let them know we’re turning final

tower november tango echo turning final three five right Cleared to land 35R, NTE there’s 70 knots and just now two knots quartering tailwind whoo, that was kinda weird I had a last minute gust right was I was 3 ft off the ground alright well i hope you guys enjoyed that flight I know i did beautiful weather out a little bumpy but overall really nice flight so thank you guys for taking the time to watch this if you do like it leave a comment down below give it a thumbs up i really do appreciate all of your support for this channel so thank you you
