Transaero, in association with the Kyneton Aero Club and Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia, will host Australia's Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for the Cancer Council of Victoria. Once again the event will be held at Kyneton Airfield with the generous assistance of the Kyneton Aero Club.
Aviators are encouraged to fly-in to Kyneton to enjoy morning tea in the hangar. All we ask in return is that you make a donation to the Cancer Council.
Non-flyers are also most welcome; the Airfield is on Kyneton-Metcalfe Rd just north of the Kyneton township. There is plenty of parking and it is a great opportunity to see a huge range of aircraft up close. The event is a perfect opportunity for Macedon Ranges locals to visit the Kyneton Airfield and enjoy morning tea while supporting a worthy cause.
Fly-in visitors will apreciate two runways and plenty of parking on the grass. See the ERSA entry for fly-neighbourly advice, and visit the Aeroclub website for more information www.kynetonaeroclub.org
This event would make a great destination for car and motorbike club outings, as well as Aero Clubs. If you have a group you would like to bring, please contact Kim and advise expected numbers so we can ensure there is enough food.

This is the time of the year when many members commit themselves to doing a little “hangar flying” to avoid the ravages of the winter weather. Maintenance, touch ups, improvements, rebuilds and projects are being done however away from Kyneton Airfield it’s hard to see what pilots are up to while in hibernation.
There have always been rumours about “Spitfires” in sheds, “Tigermoth’s” being rebuilt, “Winjeels” thought to be lost for all time but only to re-emerge after many winters and hours of work. With this in mind a number of the members of the Kyneton Aero Club have suggested that this time of the year could be a great opportunity to visit some of our members sheds to look at what is happening behind closed doors.
To get the ball rolling, long time member and significant contributor to the Australian Warbird fraternity Ian Whitney has invited members to take a look at his workshop and the progress he has been making on a number of projects including his Wirraway & P40 Kittyhawk.
Scheduled to take place on the taking place on Saturday 27th July at 12pm in Romsey, those members interested in attending should let me know if you wish to attend.
