November 2017

President's Message


November will be a busy month with the annual of PDW. Any members who are interested in helping out at the hangar while in maintenance please reach out and let me know. The annual inspection will be carried out at Central Aero at Edenvale Airport. The booking calendar will be kept up to date so please check there for updates. We are working diligently to have the airplane return to operation as soon as possible.

The temperatures are falling and once the annual is completed I suspect winter will be upon us or very close. A friendly reminder to ensure the airplane is pre-heated for cold weather operations.

Best Regards,

Harrison Drake

Inside the Envelope

With PDW away for a long maintenance period, and the numerous cancelled flights due to October's strong winds, many members are encroaching upon the end of their flight currency.

When the airplane is flying again, we will work quickly to have everyone's currency requirements addressed. Additionally, we will have one our skilled and experienced members join us in flight operations to help with training and checkouts - hopefully this winter.

Stay warm

Sam Sciscione
Director, Flight Ops

What's Up

Events and Announcements

Our next club meeting will be held at 19:00 on November16th at the Edenvale Aerodrome. Chris Jacobs, our very talented AME, will be speaking on what is involved in performing the annual on PDW and maintenance issues we should all be aware of. He'll follow with Q&A period. Should be interesting and informative for everyone.

As always it would be nice to see a good turnout for dinner in the Hangar Grill before the meeting. The management there is really trying to accommodate us so it would be great to support them. Cheers,

Grant Lloyd
