    Theo Willford is a private pilot and amateur aircraft builder from the U.K. who was involved in rebuilding a WWI Bristol Scout fighter. Starting with the original control stick, rudder bar and one magneto, and with a set of original factory drawings, Theo and his colleagues built a completely new but authentic reconstruction of a WWI Bristol Scout, right down to the Irish linen covering. KAC member, Frank Deeth, first met Theo approximately two years ago when he was visiting his daughter on the Mornington Peninsular. Not to be satisfied with the completion of the Bristol Scout, Theo is now building a Corby Starlet and through a mutual friend in the U.K. he looked Frank up during his last visit to talk, amongst all things aviation, Corby Starlets; naturally the Bristol Scout and Frank’s Spitfire projects came up as well. Since then Frank has had the privilege of catching up with Theo in the U.K. and getting an up close and personal look at the Bristol Scout based in the Shuttleworth Collection at Biggleswade near Duxford/Cambridge. Theo along with the two grandsons of an original Bristol Scout pilot take the aircraft on the road throughout the U.K. flying season to various flying and non-flying historical events to help educate the masses about the Bristol Scout and its role in WWI. Theo has kindly offered to give a talk at the Kyneton Aero Club on the building and flying of the Bristol Scout. A light supper will be provided following Theo's talk and, as usual, guests are most welcome.

    Nigel Emms has kindly offered to share with KAC Members and Guests a film he came across some 20 years ago at a Car Boot sale in England of the Southern Cross first flight across the pacific with Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm etc in May 1928.

There are also scenes of Hawaii and landing on the beach in Fiji loading fuel and the beach take-off, along with arrival into Queensland and the welcome there.

    human-factors-in-aviation

    Jetstar Pilot and Macedon Ranges local John Smart will talk about how professional Airline crews are trained and assessed in their Non-Technical Skills and Human Factors every year, and at every simulator session.  Like airline pilots, Private and General Aviation pilots should always strive to be “professional” pilots, and as such should continually update their skills and knowledge.

    In aviation accidents and incidents worldwide, 80% of these are caused in some way by human factors. John's talk will centre around 3 of the major non-technical skills all pilots should continually work on. These are Communication, Management and Situational Awareness. He will look into case studies where human Factors were contributing factors, look at some of the theory behind these skills, and put forward some “tools for the toolbox” that pilots can use not only in their flying lives, but in their personal lives as well.

    As usual, guests are most welcome and John's presentation will be followed by a light supper.
