Aerobatic Seminar at Tyabb
1 pm Sunday 27th February

Matt Marais, President of the Australian Aerobatic Club, will talk briefly about the Aerobatic club and the Victorian Aerobatic Championships.
David Pilkington will present the Beginner’s Guide to Winning an Aerobatic Contest.

The venue is the Upper Deck in the PAC clubhouse with the Seminar at 1pm.

There is plenty of time for any new aerobatic pilot to get to competition level for the Victorian Aerobatic Championships at Easter.

We're not sure whether there'll be a BBQ or whether we'll recommend The Flying Cafe. Please advise if intending to come to David 0447 800 542 or

PS: if no-one responds I will assume that no-one is coming.
