Moorabbin News and Rumours
Don’t forget to consider other users of the aerobatic area and make a general traffic call before entering.
Melbourne Flight Training will soon be offering aerobatic and formation training in a neat Airtouer T-6.
UPG has been doing quite a bit of flying since the previous newsletter despite it being winter. Now we’re in the windy season – good for finding crosswinds at Moorabbin but please be conservative and don’t go in wind conditions that might strain your skills – remember that the aeroplane will fly at about 40 kts so a gust can easily ruin your whole day.
