One of the greatest honours a pilot can have is to introduce a youngster to his first flight. Here we see young Tristan on the occasion of his tenth birthday. Check out that grin . I think it say`s it all !! A special thanks to his Mum & Dad for organising the big event. Happy birthday mate !!

Fantasy of flight !! Seen quite frequently flying through the imagination of a certain builder. ( name with held due to psychiatric assessment ) Could this be the next project?? Watch this space !!

Early morning flying : The magic of flight. Cool smooth air with every flight being a new adventure. The world from above is a scene that simply cannot be appreciated from the ground. Once you have been there you will always long to return !!

Another great fly-in breakfast held at Raysfield !! A beautiful Sunday morning . Clear skies and smooth air. Ross was out early putting in a few circuits with the Drifter. What a way to start the day !! It was just wonderful to see " Hone`s Flying Circus " arrive overhead and land for a terrific social morning. This must surley be the heart of sport flying. Safe trip home guys and girls !!

An interesting visitor to our area recently was the Holden airship. These guys travel around Australia all year doing promotional flights. Tough job but someone has to do it !!

Some shots from Windy Wagga . A great day, but a real barnblower with cold 30 knot winds !!

We decided to attend the Sport Aircraft convention at Wagga this month and combined the trip with a visit to a good friend living at Henty. Here we see Rod and I with the Karatoo on arrival at Holbrook airpark. Flying time from Raysfield 8.5 hours !!
