Welcome to 2019. The members of Coldstream Flyers have been busy little bees. There was the very successful working bee, many flying opportunities in the extended summer weather and some great travel snaps from our keen aviators
The Committee extends a great big THANK YOU to all who attended the working bee. A great number of tasks were completed and our little home away from home is set for another year.
A big thank you for all the donations for the working bee, the extra work that members went to to source items and expense that is most gratefully acknowledged.
The Flying Competitions are underway on the 3rd Sunday each month. We did have a break for Easter.
The May 2019 Flying Competition is the Inter Club Competition, Flour Bombing at Tyabb on Saturday 18 May. We have won this coveted title before, and if you are able to compete please do so again. We have some stiff competition from Lilydale, Point Cook and of course Tyabb
The Club works because of its members and those members contribute to the YCEM Airfield. From toilet provisions to Tea/Coffee and Warm/Cool club room, to hosting Kestrel over summer.
It is great and thank you to all. If you see something that needs to be done, please feel free to do it.
There was a lunch fly to Brown Brothers just before Easter that happened to also be one of the last flights of PZN before it was swapped out. So an action shot is perfect for this!
Sometimes flying activities are pre-organised and other times it is just spontaneous.
There was also a Bonfire night at Wahring Field airport that was also a great night and attended by a lot of aircraft from Tyabb to Echuca. 3 planes from YCEM went and a great night was had by all. A celebration of retirement from a flying career also coincided with this event. Fires burned, YouTube played on a big screen, roast beef rolls were served with a great Bacon and Egg roll brekky the next day. This was followed by a trip to Wangaratta for a Car and Machine show, some flew others drove that was also fantastic
Every Friday night we have social drinks and Pizza or Fish n Chips. Orders taken no later than 7.00pm. The Club also has PFE (Pleasant Friday Evenings) The Blues Brothers in Croydon was a fantastic PFE. Thanks Ray Jay!
So keep an eye on Facebook and pop out to the Club Rooms, you never know Aviation may be committed!
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:
Thank you all for your help and support.
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”
From Thursday 8 November 2018 there will be changes to the VFR cruising levels around Port Philip Bay
When taxiing past the club dont stray too close, there’s a new post! NEW Traffic conditions ahead.
Wheelchair friendly club!
Thank you to member Rob Rickards for the ramp
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
