Phoenix Flyers of Launceston Club

The Phoenix Flyers of Launceston model aircraft club is located 25 Km south of Launceston, Tasmania, on a property called Panshanger. We have around twenty members and cater for most areas of aeromodelling including radio control, free flight and control line. Our club flying day is Sunday but we have unlimited access to our field so it is not uncommon to see members flying during the week.

West Sydney Slope Soarers

West Sydney Slope Soarers fly at William Howe Regional Reserve, located close to Mount Annan and Welling Drives, Mount Annan. Mount Annan is on the southwest outkirts of Sydney, near Campbelltown.

Members tend to concentrate on slope soaring, although electric powered aircraft are used duriing initial training and on nil wind days. Best flying occurs when the wind is from the west or southwest.

Concorde MFC

Wh have a healthy mix of glo / electric flyers at our local club
and healthy rivalry between the groups. The welcome mat is open at Concorde MFC in Adelaide but look out for the Hawk. He loves to attack electric planes

Guys do you think this thread should become unstuck? There doesnt seem to much activity. Are people actually using it or is it a waste to have is sticky?

Panzerd,

I think you've posted some useful information here, but your message is unclear. What if you edited the first post to include what you put in the second post, and change the title of the thread to something that would more clearly indicate what the thread contains? The present title does not grab the attention. Perhaps a better title to the thread would be:
"Links to Australian aeromodelling associations and clubs"

I beleive it has to remain a sticky. It's useful information.

Thanks old man emu. I asked a mod to change the heading and also included my now deleted second post at the start of the thread.

Perhaps small groups of flyers could post here too if they wish to have more company at their favourite field.Even if they are not part of an official club.
If the group expands substantially,this may justify a new club being setup.
Then,a new generation of people may be more inclined to commit aviation at an official club,rather than illegally or without insurance.I think many newer flyers are reluctant to join a club because of the fear of being rejected by long term members.
This may be an unjustified fear,but one that i have heard more than once.

My recent experiences with clubs... went to a heli day at Warringah. Was there for several hours, sitting out watching the flightline. Nobody said boo to me. A month or so ago I went to an electric club in North Wahroonga, and discovered that Mavrik, who had flown his Trex there once, was told that electric helicopters were henceforth banned from using the site (no reason given). A while earlier I went to Fagans Park club, and was warmly received, and offered a visitors' peg. So, that's one out of three. I daresay my experience is not out of line with everyone else's ...

Sure thing, this thread is for the community. If you have a flying group that isn't an offical club and you want to promote it then go ahead and post the details.

Well maybe its just me but if you go to any club and do approach anyone and strike a conversation then of course it will seem that they a stand off ish thats just normal .

But on the other hand if you introduce your self and start asking question about the club the aircraft that you would be suprised at the difference in reception you would get .It may be just a power thing because every slope Ive been to the guys and girls a great friendly and always ready for a chin wag .

Our club wlecomes newbies and accomplished pilots without treating them differently .

Now Phil said he had not heard of one park flyer accident or 3rd party claim or death , well it would'nt be front page news unless it was a death so you really wouldnt know .

I do know of an accident and a 3rd party claim on a power ship that almost cost the guy his life and it happen at a club field he was hit in the back of the head by a 40 powered model and crushed his skull he survived but ruined his life as he couldnt fly any more (he was a commecial airline pilot).

Without the Insurance cover provided by membership the pilot of the offending aircraft would have been finacially ruined . Sure it may never happen to you but could you afford $20,000,000 if it did?

Could we post up and coming club competitions in this thread?
I fly slope but would be interested in going to watch others doing what they do best, be it scale, pylon, turbines, fun fly, boats, cars or what ever, if we donít know its on, we wont come.
There were state titles for R/C powered boats on the weekend at the Penrith regatta centre, and the only reason I knew it was on, was that I drove past and saw the sign.

Hello everyone,
I live on the west side of melbourne and love the parkflyers.
But don't know anybody that flys over here, I'm a member of a club but it's
all glowfuel. Sometimes I take them to the club only to be shunned by the older
members. I don't care I fly them anyway.
Cheers Brett.
