This message was received recently on LinkedIn, from Captain Geoff Appleton, a former protege at RAAF Point Cook Flying Club, in the mid-1980’s. Aviation is such a small world and it is wonderful and so rewarding to receive feedback, such as this:

“Hi Dave,

You investigated & taught me the ‘Jacobson Flare’ at RAAF Point Cook Flying Club, when I was going thru the RAAF Pilots 142 course, now over 30 yrs ago.

I still use the concept today, in any aircraft, as do most of my ‘heavy’ mates. Fond memories…hope you’re well DJ?

Cheers mate,

Geoff Appleton (Capt B767, Air Japan/ANA, Narita/Japan)”


Wishing you many safe landings
