Aviation Club - activity?

Unread post by Mike Gough » Tue Jun 03, 2014 1:43 pm

I recently noticed this sub-forum and am curious - is this club active?

I see posts from last year, but nothing recent. I'm a Saints old boy, and now have two girls in the GC, grades 8 and 11. Would be interested to see what interest is out there still, seeing that I'm flying Airbusses and own a flight school not too far from Saints... :mrgreen:

Have not seen too much activity here either... I'm also a Saints dad girls gr5 and boy Gr3.

I Know of another Saints dad that also flys. Both of us are out at Magalies Gliding Club. I fly pure gliders whilst he has a TMG so we never see each other on the airfield as he flys late in the afternoon or early in the mornings whilst I fly in the heat of the day. There must be more saints dads who fly.

We should look for them and hookup for a beer.

I am also a Saints Dad (Son in the BC and daughter in GC). I fly Flexwing Trike from Tedderfield.
My son, GarethB on Avcom, is part of the Saints Aviation Club and I normally go with him to some of the club events (as taxi and sometimes fly in).

The club has been fairly active during the year, in supporting Baragwanath events and others as marshalls etc, but I don't think active enough in other events outside of the school.
Slipstream (Mr Courtney Watson) is the teacher in control of the club and would be the best person to be involved in any Saints Fathers event.
He would be very appreciative of any parent support or opportunities for the club members.
