If you are a young aviator we have plenty for you!
Are you 15-25 years old? Thinking about flying as a career? Want to find out more?
On Friday 18th October we have a program for schools and young aviators. With tours, talks from the Royal Flying Doctor Service, SAAA and RAF. This commences at 11.00 hrs local time.
We will also have our own dedicated Young Aviator Zone where you can go for a flight with one of members and talk to our team on how to be a part of aviation. Pick up information whilst you are there. We have Ace Aviation on board with their drone display and they can advise you how to become a drone pilot, along with AOPA’s flight simulators.
Come and join in the fun and soak up the atmosphere of all aviators under one sky
We are pleased to advise that we have two amazing pilots that are a part of our air display this year.
Gary Weeks is the owner and builder of his VH-ZYA is a Lancair Legacy RG. It is a two-seat high performance Carbon Fibre, quick build kit from Lancair. The Lancair Legacy was the aeroplane that started the Sport Class at Reno. That is why you see lots of Legacy’s in the Sport and Super Sport class at Reno. It has a new double tapper Greg Cole wing designed to improve low speed handling and still provide high speed cruise.
Gary’s display will include a number of high-speed passes and a combination of gentle aerobatics.
Cessna built his first airplane in 1911 and taught himself to fly it! He went
on to build a number of innovative airplanes, including several racings and
award winning designs. In 1934, Clyde’s nephew, Dwane Wallace, fresh out of
college, took over as head of the company. During the depression years Dwane
acted as everything from floor sweeper to CEO, even personally flying company
planes in air races (several of which he won!) Under Wallace’s leadership, the
Cessna Aircraft Company eventually became the most successful general aviation
company of all time.
In 1957 the company decided there was a market for a
tri-geared version of the Model 140. Following their standard
tailwheel/tricycle naming convention, Cessna named the new airplane the Cessna
142. Six days later, for reasons now unknown, the airplane was renamed the
Cessna 150. A total of 683 C150’s were built between 1957 and 1959, all were
sold as 1959 models.
Cessna 150 celebrates 60 years 1959 – 2019.
At AusFly 2019 we would like to celebrate with a line-up of Cessna 150’s. Please contact us at email@example.com if you can join us and be a part of this celebration.
