Weekly Presidents Update
Club news you can use…Weekly updates
To all students, Flying club members, and Instructors. There has been an increased number of incidents of the fuel bowser being left ON for extended periods of time. The fuel bowser must always be switched OFF at the grey box after each refueling. If you notice that it is left in the ON position please change it to the OFF position. This can reduce the chance of ignition if there was a malfunction within the fuel bowser.
A reminder that at this Friday’s social gathering, we have special guests “Angel Flight” joining us from 5 pm.
“Angel Flight Australia is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights assisting country people to access specialist medical treatment otherwise unavailable to them because of vast distances and high travel costs. All flights are free of charge and assist passengers traveling to or from medical facilities almost anywhere in Australia. Angel Flight can also provide compassionate flights for family members, and transport medical supplies.
Angel Flight Australia was officially launched in 2003. Since then, over 50,000 Angel Flight missions have been completed, helping those in need of non-emergency medical treatment for a wide range of conditions.
” At present, we have a high demand for volunteer pilots in your area, and we need your help so we can continue to provide our important service.”

Some special packages started to arrive this week. Thank you to the SUNSHINE COAST SEA EAGLES and Lenroy Trimmer for your efforts in the purchase of the new Aero Club Flight Simulator.” 172 XPlane. A proposal was put together by the group and presented to the Club committee by Nathan Korendijk and Ryan Ingliss, which was then unanimously approved for purchase with a “GCBF” Gambling Community Benefit Fund. We shall keep you posted on the progress as it arrives and is put together.
