Good conditions!

 Vasifeh (above) had an exciting first time gliding experience with Eddie in UIZ. Melvyn bought the family from Melbourne up to Tocumwal especially for the flight. Son Sam and Grandson Daniel were there to cheer Vasifeh on. Welcome also to the tall handsome young fellow with the beard -Anders.

 Good conditions yesterday - climbs to 10,000 feet.

 Leif (above) has had a great time soaring with Eddie over the past few days.

 Terry had a terrific flight in Papa Charlie yesterday.

 Rolf (above) took Ainslee for her first ever gliding flight this afternoon - fantastic was the verdict!!

Farewell Stephan & Niklas

 Farewell to Stephan & Niklas (above) with Eddie. Father and son had a great flying holiday! Looking forward to seeing you in January Stephan.

 Doug (above) enjoyed a trial instructional flight with Eddie in the nose wheel.

 Yes Terry- it's always a good idea to hitch up the daks before you start to push!!

Congratulations to Steve who completed his RAA conversion on Friday.

 Happy 14th birthday to Niklas (above).

 John (above) had a great air experience flight in the twin astir yesterday.
