This morning the Ausfly Stakeholders consisting of AOPA, Narromine Shire Council, Narromine Aeroclub and SAAA met to discuss the current pandemic situation in New South Wales and around the country.
Due to the restrictions in NSW imposed at this time, and the ongoing increase in case numbers, we are unable to hold our Ausfly event and we made the decision to cancel.
With the uncertainty within each state and the different restrictions, we understand that attendees to Ausfly would possibly be concerned about whether they can return home, especially if a snap lockdown is imposed by their home state.
Our priority is to keep everyone safe.
We will continue to monitor the COVID situation and as soon as we know we can hold Ausfly with the confidence of not cancelling again, we will let you know.
We are very pleased to have the Royal Flying Doctors Service join us at AusFly. They are attending to speak to our Young Aviators on Friday morning and we hope that they can stay on for the rest of the event.
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.
