Human Factors Course 20th March

As many of you know, we have been holding very successful Human Factors courses on a monthly basis for any RA-Aus pilots or students, along with interested PPL holders. Our next course will be held on Saturday 20th March.

Any pilot is welcome to attend, learn more about how our decision making and judgement is affected by external factors ranging from environmental to work and family pressures and our state of health at the time.

The course starts at 9.00am, with coffee and lunch breaks provided, finishing at 3.00pm, all for the princely sum of $25.

Please advise Jill on 0412 409171 or training@temoraaeroclub.com if you would like to attend. Bring along your logbook and a notebook.

See you there,

Jill

Latest news

We have certainly picked up the pace in February, with our Human Factors course held on 13th February attracting 19 pilots and students. People attended from Nowra, Canberra, Sydney the local area, and even one keen pilot from Werribee in Victoria! Jim Haines of Werribee has been doing some Tecnam conversion training and decided the Human Factors course was too good to miss.

Congratulations also to Geoff Gasior for his passenger endorsement, a Pilot Certificate for Scott Taubman of Young, and a first solo for Gabriele Shardlow of Young. New students include Vet Science student Ayla Hunt from Wagga, Glen and his son Matt Davidson from Canberra, Jason Cockayne of Temora Aviation Museum, Ross Howard from Cootamundra and Rowan Fleming from West Wyalong, while Shane Barker of Gerringong is enjoying some conversion flying in the Tecnam between construction of the new TAFE  buildings. Recently enjoying flying the Tecnam as part of a glider  conversion was Peter Plunkett of Brisbane, who also did some training with Lindsay Wallace, back for a long overdue visit to Temora recently. Margaret Struthers of Bathurst also recently flew the Tecnam as part of her conversion from a gliding licence.

We also enjoyed hosting the recent TAFE course in aerodynamics at the Aero Club with 6 students taking the opportunity to do some Tecnam flying with Quincy and Jill.

Phew, I’m exhausted just typing all this activity! Safe flying til next time,

Jill
