An ex-member of WRCS, Peter Gaunt, passed away early in November 2019. The Sydney Morning Herald carried an excellent article on Peter's life, at this link: https://www.smh.com.au/national/man-of-style-at-the-helm-of-the-sydney-morning-herald-20191024-p533s7.html
We've just posted the Eelectric Flight Primer - a colelction of information from David Menzies that might help demistify some of the electric flight calculations and choices. A good read... click HERE to go to the article.
Registraion for 2019/20 renewals starts at 5:30. AGM and meeting will kick off around 7.
Come along for our annual sport, scale and fun-fly event on Sunday 6th October. Flying from 9am onwards, with most to see around 10am to 2pm. Scanner and Phoenix racing at midday subject to enough entrants, and trash and treasure (bring your own table).
There will be a sausage sizzle, and guests and visitors are very welcome. The gate will be left open to allow easy access to the field.
No restrictions on who can fly or what they fly, as long as they are an MAAA member.
See you there.
Biplane Day 2019 is on Saturday March 9th from 8am. The field will be open to all sport flying - it's a normal flying day - but there should be a few extra biplanes turning up.
There won't be any competition on the day as we don't have a volunteer for competition director, so all flying will be just for fun.
Guests are welcome, so if you have family or friends who would like to come down and enjoy the day, please invite them along. There won't be any food or drink provided by the club, but we can light the gas barbecue if you'd like to do a bit of self-catering.
You'll need a gate key to get in. The gate will not be left open. Anyone wanting to come along who doesn't have a gate key will find plenty of people coming in between about 8 and 9:30, so you should have too long to wait at the gate if you turn up around then. After that, there will still be people coming in and out, but you might have to wait a while longer.
