Sunday Morning Breakfast Fly-In
The Sunday Morning Breakfast Fly-in, held 19th February, brought together over 20 club members and friends.
Two members flew in from private fields and other members at Temora set to the skies- about ten planes all up!
The Club intends to make this a monthly event and will post coming dates.
Human Factors Course 11th December 2010
We are running our last Human Factors Course for the year on Saturday December 11th at the Temora Flight Training hangar. As previously run, the course will start at 9.00am with coffee and lunch break and probably finish at 2.00pm. Cost is $35 including lunch, please bring your logbook to the course, along with any note taking materials you might need.
Don’t forget, if your RA-Aus BFR is due soon, you need this Human Factors Course to achieve a BFR as the cut off date was September this year.

AV Safety Seminar 13th October
An excellent roll up for the AV Safety Seminar with 29 people coming from Temora, Cootamundra, Leeton and Canberra! Teraya and Albert from CASA, reviewed changes in procedure at non towered aerodromes and Pilot Maintenance. A shared meal at the conclusion allowed time for participants to renew friendships with others and to speak further with the presenters.
Coming Event – MARCH 2011 90th Royal Australian Air Force Air Rally
On the 28th March, 2011, the 90th Royal Australian Air Force Rally will arrive at Temora on day one of a rally that will take them to three original early training school sites. Members of the Temora Aero Club Committee have been meeting with representatives from Point Cook, the Temora Council and Rod Luke who is the main organiser of this important event. More that 50 aircraft will arrive during Monday and will lunch at the club house. A Special dinner will take place at the museum that evening and then the group will depart through the day on Tuesday after having breakfast at the club.
The Temora Council has been involved in publicity and invitations to school groups to come to the airfield and be part of this special occasion and the aero club will provide meals.
More information about this rally will appear through the following months.
Sunday, September 26th, 2010 was a perfect day for the Club’s Open Day!
The rain had ceased, the sun was out and the wind nil. At around 9:00am some residents of the Aviation Estate started to bring their planes down to the parking area outside the club house and pegged them down for the day. By 11:00am inbound planes started to arrive from other aero clubs. By the end of the day we had planes that had come from a number of clubs in the area: Tumut, Wagga, Moruya and Sydney.
A BBQ at midday set the scene for visitors and club members to gather around and catch up with fellow aviators and happenings at other clubs.
We had a good line up with a variety of planes on display from Sal and Justin’s Luscombe to Sam Richard’s RV. There was a bit of competition between the two on who could get the best “shine”. Sal’s recent gift to Justin of a super duper polisher helped them “win”! What a shine!!!
A very Successful Day!!
Human Factors Course 19th September
We will be holding another Human Factors Course on Sunday the 19th September. As many of you know this subject is a mandatory part of holding an RA-Aus Pilot Certificate so even though we will be continuing to hold these throughout the year you should try to knock it over before September if you can.
Cost is $35 including lunch, and you should also bring your logbook along. The course should go from 9.00am to 2.30pm with coffee and lunch breaks.
Contact Jill on 0412 409171 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise if you can attend and for further info and venue details.
