    Ibex Hard Pan

    Friday, July 31st, 2015

    Ibex Hard Pan, a dried lake bed in western Utah is great place to fly. I didn’t touch my wheels on this trip so I wouldn’t have to clean the salt off my undercarriage. I visited Ibex a few years ago and camped at the volcanic island that rises out of the salt. This year the island was surrounded on 3 sides by water, and the final side by mud.

    Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

    Yes… Its on again…

    msSIh8aASye1g6u7fIZ4pqgThe Megafauna Fly-away for 2016 will be from the 4th of JUNE to the 12th of JUNE. Its going to be different and it should be fun. We have hangarage for all the aircraft every night. We have a Paddle boat lunch trip, and a lunch at an old homestead. We will be also going bowling and a night at the movies. There will be no limit to the amount of aircraft or aircrew, and the best part is each dinner is going to be great. I haven’t finalized the paperwork yet and the cost has not gone up. the only difference is the amount of fun we will have. If you are interested in the 2016 MEGAFAUNA FLY-AWAY, email me on yft@yarrawongaflighttraining.com.au and as soon as the paperwork is finalized I will get it to you.

    Cirrus Day at YFT

    Sunday, July 12th, 2015

    Cirrus Day at Yarrawonga…

    3911We had much interest in this event, but with the weather predictions being so bad, most people stayed away. However the Cirrus people made the effort to bring the Cirrus Australis up to Hangar 19 from Melbourne. Charles and Ryan had flown with a warmly heated cockpit, so they were quite shocked with the cold when they landed. Charles took Murray, Rob and Peter for a flight to Mangalore and back to show all 04531the features that this Cirrus offers. Thanks again to Charles and Ryan for making the effort, and we will try our hardest next time for GREAT WEATHER!!!
