First week of flying has been completed with Rockhampton Sport Aviation at Hedlow. Three students have started weightshift pilot training and numerous TIF's flown. Even the weather worked out (mostly !)
A huge well done to Steve Bartlett for completing his RAAus weightshift instructors course. Steve will now be able to conduct training at our satellite school in Hedlow (near Rockhampton) and will also help out at Caboolture on occasions.
After a lot of hard work (mostly by Steve Bartlett) we have obtained permission from RAAus to open a Satellite Flight Training Facility at Steve's home base of Hedlow airfield between Rockhampton and Yeppoon on the central Queensland coast. Training will hopefully start next month and the airfield is also a great flyaway destination with easy trips to places such as Great Keppel Island.

Congratulations to Craig MacDonald on his first solo flight.
More than a year after he sold his Edge, Neil Schaefer has rejoined the ranks of trike owners by purchasing Edge XT582 Cruze 32-4582 from Ian Wilkie and Ivor Harper. This plane was originally owned by Derek Tremain and Chris Pfeiffer and has been based at Caboolture since new. It is no stranger to decent sized cross country flights as it was flown back to Caboolture from the factory and has also made the trip to Natfly at Narromine where it was awarded the "Best Trike" trophy. Hopefully Neil is planning to continue this worthy tradition with a few trips of his own.
