Hey Mike, I did mine at Williams last year with the Intimidator 4 rocket and it reached just over 12000 feet. Something I couldn't do at our regular launch site. :P

March launch was just another "outing" for OZ Thunder but with M1297W motor this time around, last year it flew on L1170FJ for it's test/maiden launch.

You are correct that Mike P. & Sam did theirs this year at Williams.

I agree with Leigh! I really do think that Scoop did a great job on my L3 certification!

I do believe by the fact that Blake has proven to the TRA BoD that he knows what he is doing and obtaining the TAP status then I would be very proud to receive an L3 from Blake.

Yes it was certainly a nasty thing to say, but it certainly was not aimed at anyone here...

Back to the Blake bashing now...

A question was raised earlier in this thread, and it just occurred to me that maybe that it should have been answered.

The following is a list of the TRA L3's either in Australia or completed in Australia with hopefully the correct years

1) David Wilkins VIC (flight in Argonia KS USA) 1999??
2) Scott McCleod NSW (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2003?? - 1st in Australia
3) Dave Couzens WA (flight in West Palm FL USA) 2008
4) Blake Nikolic QLD (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2010
5) Ari Piirainen QLD (flight in Williams WA) 2010
6) Simon Liebke QLD(flight in Williams WA) 2010
7) Samantha Termini WA (flight in Williams WA) 2011 - 1st Australian Female
8) Mike Passaretti NJ USA (flight in Williams WA) 2011 - 1st Non Australian citizen to certify in Australia
9) Les Morton VIC (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2011
10) Nic Lottering QLD (flight in Cedar Grove QLD) 2011

I think I have them all right...... but will happily be corrected if anyone knows more specific

With a couple of new Level 3 certifications achieved over the weekend, it prompted me to look back on this thread and look to update the list of L3 flyers in Australia.

I may not have the chronological order correct or the complete list, so if anyone has accurate information please advise.

The following is a list of the TRA L3's either in Australia or completed in Australia with hopefully the correct years

1) David Wilkins VIC (flight in Argonia KS USA) 1999??
2) Scott McCleod NSW (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2003?? - 1st in Australia
3) Dave Couzens WA (flight in West Palm FL USA) 2008
4) Blake Nikolic QLD (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2010
5) Ari Piirainen QLD (flight in Williams WA) 2010
6) Simon Liebke QLD(flight in Williams WA) 2010
7) Samantha Termini WA (flight in Williams WA) 2011 - 1st Australian Female
8) Mike Passaretti NJ USA (flight in Williams WA) 2011 - 1st Non Australian citizen to certify in Australia
9) Les Morton NSW (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2011
10) Nic Lottering QLD (flight in Cedar Grove QLD) 2011
11) Norm McGeogh NSW (flight in Williams WA) 2012
12) Trevor Boyd VIC (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2012
13) Karl Hemphill VIC (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2012
14) Mark Harris WA (flight in Williams WA) 2013
15) George Dobson QLD (flight in Westmar QLD) 2013
16) Jason Batey VIC (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2013
17) Peter Lam VIC (flight in Serpentine VIC) 2013
18) Andrew Hamilton WA (flight in Williams WA) 2013

It is very pleasing to see this list grow from the early days when there were very few L3 certified flyers.
Keep up the good work!
