It looks like we are in another never ending lockdown for Melbourne so time to consider some amusements for aviators!

More Free Zoom Sessions

There will be a lot of time next week, at least, to do some more free sessions. My idea is to do them for individuals and small groups on topics that they want.

What do you think?

Have a look here for some ideas: http://ozaeros.net.au/guff/
Any topics are fine including BAK and CPL theory subjects.

Once a Zoom session is set up I would invite others to participate if they are interested.

Rumours and News

  • The National Championships have been postponed until 23-28 November 2021. The chances of the event happening are becoming very slim as we hear about the guvinments' restrictions.
  • The Latrobe Valley Aerobatic Challenge was rescheduled for 28-29th August 2021 but watch for any changes. I wonder what is planned to happen at that Aerobatic Challenge? Anyone interested in flying UPG should advise David.
