Is this going to be a yearly held event in Australia now, or a one off? ,_,

*edit* yep just looking, no way I'd be able to swing my visit to QLD before march, bloody money constraints
I really hope this isnt a one off
It is my understanding that it will be every 2 years....I'll confirm later today

Hey Rob,

Better tell pete to send the turbine in to get checked, it's smoking quite a bit on startup!!

Is Ali still slated to come out for the event? I'll be heading out to see him fly!

Thanks

Hey guys I have a question ref the flyin and the recent flooding. I would like to confirm whether the up coming flying spectacular is still going ahead or not.
I hope the field is still going strong and was not affected at all.
Can you let us know the outcome of this question.
Cheers Shane

Shane, the floods did not reach the field, and the SGAI is absolutely ON.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Make yourself known to me mate,
Cheers

Rob,
Thanks for the quick reply so looks like I will attend but only the one day as I will have the wife and kids in tow.
As mentioned above I am really looking forward to seeing this every year. Just one thing with holding it in September on the following years just make sure it does not clash with Shepparton Mammoth Scale weekend

If you ever need a side kick to jet set all over the world and fly planes maybe I could give it a crack.
I too am looking forward to seeing everyone and watching some of the best pilots Australia and the world has to offer.
See you there.
Shane

SGAI Final Prep

G'day Mike, Shane and all,
I spent the weekend with the dedicated organisers and helpers making final preparations for the SGAI.
Gratton Field looks fantastic.
We had the first of our Newspapers visit for some publicity shots, while the rest of us toiled in the heat and humidity to ensure that we would not just be ready, but that the competitors and visitors would have a first class airfield to see and fly from.

Many of our local competitors were in today to fine tune their racers and their scale models. Gratton FIeld was certainly a very busy place this weekend.

Steve Thomas, Luke Cullen, Chris Gratton Mark Williamson, and MANY others have been working very hard to see that you will all be happy come the SGAI.

I have a few snaps from the weekend just to give you a look at our prep work this weekend.

Looking forward to seeing and meeting you come Thursday.
Rob
