Working Bee Results

On behalf of the committee, myself and all the club members, I would like to thank all of those who helped improve our clubrooms in the lead-up to, on, and after the working bee. Our clubrooms are now much improved and better than ever. Some of the improvements include:

  • Painting and tidying of the toilets
  • Installation of airband radio speakers
  • Staining of the deck
  • Installation of a flyscreen door and window flyscreens
  • Installation of a television antenna
  • Installation of a wireless router for use with the printer
  • Cleaning and tidying everything – the fridge, the rooms, the toilets and surrounds

Thank you all for your help and support.

Coldstream to Wentworth October 2018

Coldstream to Wentworth October 2018 

By Len Borrow

Mike Welsh’s cousin Peter runs an asparagus farm 18 kilometres north of Wentworth Western NSW.

Mike suggested the idea to club members for a flyaway in the second week of July this year and quite a few members were interested in the trip and the accommodation, but because of bad weather the trip was cancelled and new arrangements were made to go away on the second weekend in October.

Originally up to three or four planes were going to fly to Wentworth but one by one members dropped out. In the end the ‘gallant three’ ended up having a fantastic time at Tarcoolar Mike’s cousins asparagus farm. Continue reading “Coldstream to Wentworth October 2018”

Wheelchair Pilots Day – Sunday 28 October 2018

On Sunday 28 October 2018, CFC will be hosting the first get together of Victoria’s Disabled Pilots Group.

We invite volunteers to take those participants without their own aircraft flying.

Some of the participants may have done the Wheelies with Wings course on the Foxbat and others are experienced flyers and owners.

The hope is that this will become a regular event.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact CFC member Rob Rickards
