After ten months of intensive flying training at Naval Station Mayport with Squadron HSM40, they now join NUSQN 725 as qualified ‘Sensos’.“The whole conversion was a great experience and an amazing opportunity,” Leading Seaman Carruthers said.“The instruction and guidance we received from the US Navy was excellent. They are solid operators and have so much experience with the Seahawk,” he said.“The Romeo is a multi role helicopter and it’s definitely a step up from previous aircraft I’ve qualified on,” Leading Seaman Clunie said.The training consisted of aircraft and ground events covering numerous missions, ranging from Search and Rescue and Utility to the primary missions of Anti Submarine Warfare and Surface Warfare.Leading Seamen Carruthers and Clunie will remain in the United States to join NUSQN 725 for operations from Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Further on-the-job training and operations under the Fleet Air Arm flying management system will consolidate their US Navy training and they will both play a critical role when the Squadron returns to Australia in December this year.[mappress]Press Release, June 16, 2014; Image: Australian Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today New Squadron 725 Team Expands New Squadron 725 Team Expands Authorities View post tag: NUSQN 725 View post tag: americascenter_img View post tag: expands June 16, 2014 View post tag: News by topic The New Squadron 725 (NUSQN 725) team at Naval Air Station Jacksonville recently grew by two, with the graduation of the first Royal Australian Navy Aircrewmen to complete the MH-60R Seahawk Romeo Basic Sensor Operators Course and achieve the qualification of ‘Senso’.

Dream home on acreage close to the beach

first_imgThe pool and the outdoor entertaining area at 108-110 Cocos Drive, Ningi. Picture: Supplied. THIS is the ultimate home for the true blue Queenslanders out there. You can watch the footy from the pool, park the boat and jet ski in the big shed, put the project car up on the two-post hoist, shoot pool in your own bar, and then knock up some pizzas in the outdoor kitchen. All while the children run amok on the 4,000sq m block. Or just hook up the boat and head 10 minutes to the nearest boat ramp for a day of fishing. Owners Damien and Charlene Benbow built the home on 4000sq m at 108-110 Cocos Drive, Ningi three years ago with their family of four in mind. The home is three years old and looks like new. Picture: Supplied. Mrs Benbow said her favourite part of the property was the alfresco area.“It blends seamless with the rest of the house and we have our pool under the roof,” she said. “We’ve included things like a pizza oven, outdoor kitchen and infra-red heaters so it can be used all year round.” Inside the home, a big kitchen has Smeg appliances, Caesarstone benchtops and a butler’s pantry. The open-plan living and dining area opens through bi-fold doors to the outdoor entertaining area. The home theatre has sound proofing and there is plenty of room for a pool table in the rumpus room with built-in bar.
