    Following a review of the club finances and underlying costs, the Committee has decided that the following aircraft rates will apply from November 1, 2018. The practical effect is an approximate increase to a 20 minute training flight of around $5. 

    Aircraft hire rates from 1 November 2018:

     

    $/min

    BCK/TNC Tow rate*

    6.50

    Ferry rate

    5.60

    NDG/VMF/VWR

    0.90

    CQP

    0.60

    XOA

    0.60

    VCS

    0.70

    ZRD

    1.20

    *This tow rate will also be applied to MGC members towing behind SSO/KKR.

    The free glider time prior to 1100 has also been discontinued. 

    Further details on the rationale and basis for these changes will be shared in the next Glide Angle.

    The Committee has decided to offer by ballot to the MGC membership (individual owners or syndicate), three currently available hangar spaces in the South Hangar. 

    The winners of the ballot will be offered a 3-year lease of the hangar space. At the end of the 3-year lease the hangar space will be returned to the Club.  

    For all details on the ballot, refer to the member email sent on 28 September 2018. Registrations for the ballot close on Thursday 18 October 2018 at 5.00pm.

    MGC will be celebrating its 74th birthday on the 1st of September 2018.

    While the people that formed the club had been flying for many years prior to this, this was the first meeting of the group that decided to form the club as we know it today.  Like all pilots, they spent so long flying, it took another 3 years before the club was officially formed in the eye of the government, and the first Annual General Meeting of the club was held in 1946.

    The club would not have one of the best fleets in Australia without the selfless work of its volunteers, many of whom work behind the scenes to keep the club running, from the committee, to the duty pilots and instructor's, everyone needs to continue to do their bit to ensure the club continues to be a success.

    The club would like to update the picture we have going out on our emails from the club from membership renewals with something that represents the Melbourne Gliding Club - e.g. our aircraft, Bacchus Marsh airfield etc.


    Send me through your best picture, or collage of pictures suitable for the emails - 600 x 240 pixels is the current size of the images. The winner as chosen by me gets a bottle of wine from the President's wine cellar. Get your entries in by 20 July to president@melbourneglidingclub.com.au

    The club is migrating from mobile broadband to NBN, as the quality and reliability of the mobile network has been deteriorating, as the volume of data handled by the network increases.

    Fortunately the NBN released access to the network in April, allowing a fixed wireless service to be installed mid May.  It was important the club moved on this fast as the NBN will only install a single service to the airfield.

    While we have experienced significant increases in speed, the most significant improvement has been in the lifting of data usage limits compared to the mobile network. Removal of the data limits has allowed the network to be opened up for broader use by club members.

    Each club will have its own WiFi network and key codes. the codes will be available from members of the committee, instructor panel and duty pilots.  Please do not share this code outside the club.

    Broadband will open a range of new possibilities, as we will be able to stream training videos etc. 

    If you have any questions please email steve@techexecs.com.au

    Enjoy Steve Trone
