Congratulations to the many new pilots who achieved first solos and badge achievemente around the country. Here are a few of them.
Congratulations to Oscar for his first solo on his 20th birthday at Darling Downs Soaring Club.
Congratulations to Monique for her first solo on a cloudy day in November at Darling Downs Soaring Club.
Congratulations to Bernie, who flew his first 300km Gold C and Diamond Goal at SportAviation Tocumwal in November.
North Queensland Soaring Centre welcomed a new addition to its fleet, an SZD-48-1 Jantar Standard 2, VH-CQY. This is a fantastic acquisition for the club as it is a high-performance cross-country single seater and complements the existing fleet.
Instructors Russ and Andrew were the first club members to fly it at NQSC and were thrilled with its performance. They are looking forward to many years of flying it as the club gradually builds its cross-country capabilities.
