Ray passed his RPC this morning.! His determination and persistence has paid off and today was his day. Well done Ray!.

Ray has played a big  part of the club and was out participating with many of our members this week playing a “casualty” as part of the Sunshine Coat Airport Multi-Agency Emergency  Field Exercise earlier in the week.  You may event have seen him on TV!  if not  CLICK HERE

Ryan and Seb, ready for the safety exercise.

SLING 2087

To fly the new Sling, 23-2087 Both Student and Instructor will need to have met the requirements of the Sunshine Coast Aero Club

“Pilot Proficiency Program.”

Further details to come regarding this over the coming weeks.

SLING 8667

Sling 8667 again has had some flap damage acquired this week which may or may not have been realised at the time however requires the need to AGAIN remind all flying members to take care with getting in and out of aircraft, be careful how you push the aircraft around. Look and report any defect you notice prior to or after your flight. If your unsure, report it anyway.

Be quite conscious of signing the maintenance release. If you sign the release then you are effectively confirming the aircraft is not damaged at that point.  

Farewell Ty!

Ty is off to Broome next week to fly a Caravan for a few months!. A great opportunity for him and we wish him all the “Best on the West”. Thank you for your time with us Ty. Hurry back!
