    OzRunways Master Class scheduled for next Monday at the Kyneton Aero club clubroom.

    The master class with start at 5:30pm however it will commence at 5:45pm so please turn up early.

    The early start time is necessary due to the heavy demand on OzRunways seminars, and also as the presenter will probably be flying in from Canberra!

    We trust that there will be a good turnout despite the earlier start time.

    Please remember to bring along a fully charged iPad to follow the presentation.

    Its clearly going to take an "army" of members and volunteers to assist us in cleaning up and preparing the air field for the up coming "Kyneton Airshow". The return of the spring rains has seen both the grass bouncing out of the ground and has also prevented us from carrying out any routine maintenance.

    "And that's why we need you"!

    Signup now for the Kyneton Aero Club Working Bee
    October 8th & 9th  

    We have enlisted the services of the Kyneton & Woodend Rotary "Army" to help us fight the battle. Members who are able to help out please be ready to take action on the weekend by bringing basic hand tools, mowers, paint brushes, mowers, shovels, ride on mowers etc.

    A BBQ lunch will be provided on both days by the club catering corp at the KAC mess for all troops.

    Any issue or concerns then please contact the OIC officer in charge of YKTN maintenance Warren Canning at secretary@kynetonaeroclub.org

    *** Postponement of the 2016 Kyneton Air Show ***
     
    The Kyneton Airshow Committee; comprising members from the Kyneton Aero Club and Rotary Clubs of Kyneton and Woodend, have had to make the regrettable decision to postpone the planned Kyneton Aero Club’s 50th Anniversary Airshow due to heavy and persistent Spring rainfall that has made the vast majority of the Kyneton Airfield unserviceable.
     
    This decision has not been made lightly, as the Committee is very much aware of the disruption that this may cause to vendors, participants and visitors. However, safety of all involved must, and always will, be our primary concern, and with the current condition of the Airfield surfaces, and also the areas required for parking and logistics support, we do not believe it is prudent to proceed with the 23 October date.
     
    The Airshow Committee is seeking to identify an alternate date, likely to be in the first half of 2017, when it can hold the Airshow without conflicting with other tourism events in the Macedon Ranges and/or other Aviation events around the State. Once a date is finalised we will be in touch with further advice about the plans for the event.
