    A pair of windsocks have been installed near the entrance gate from the club house to the airfield, and the fence corner at the 27 launch area.  While the plan is to install them at the end of each runway the 2 installations will test the setup.

    Many thanks to Steve Coulton for manufacturing the top swivels the windsocks attach to.


    Enjoy, Steve Trone

    As part of our journey to increase participation in the club, the Committee has implemented a ground crew roster to support the daily duty team. It has been great to see so many of you out and about at the airfield. If you’re not a tow pilot, instructor or duty pilot, you’ll find your name on the roster to come out to the airfield on a few days throughout the year to assist with operations for the day. 

    We want you to come out, help out, and be able to go for a flight as well. I know people have commitments that come up, so the same principle applies as with our tow pilots, instructors and duty pilots. If you can’t make a day, please find a member to swap with. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    The club operations roster is back on the members web site after being repaired.

    Please let Ben, Steve or Michael know if there any errors or omissions.

    The club has purchased a BBQ & shade tent (photo below), please feel free to use it before and after flying, as long as you clean it after use.

    The BBQ is on wheels and will be stored in the hangar with the shade tent, ready to go, along with a plastic container with cooking gear.

    Please ensure it is cleaned after each use ready for the next group.

    As part of our journey to increase participation in the club, the Committee has decided to introduce a ground crew roster to support the daily duty team. The first edition of the new ground crew roster is now live to kick off from the first weekend in December (see list below). If you’re not a tow pilot, instructor or duty pilot, you’ll find your name on the roster to come out to the airfield on a few days throughout the year to assist with operations for the day. You’ll see we usually have two crew for the summer months (through to the Easter camp) and then one in the winter period. We want you to come out, help out, and be able to go for a flight as well. I know people have commitments that come up, so the same principle applies as with our tow pilots, instructors and duty pilots. If you can’t make a day, please find a member to swap with. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.
