Op­por­tu­nity to take to the air

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Peo­ple who have long had a de­sire to learn how to pi­lot an air­craft have an op­por­tu­nity to gain in­sight into what is re­quired at a Hor­sham Aero Club come­and-try day on Oc­to­ber 22.

The club, in part­ner­ship with fly­ing school Air­wego, has or­gan­ised the Sun­day event at Hor­sham aero­drome in an ef­fort to pro­mote fly­ing and build club num­bers.

Club vice-pres­i­dent and Air­wego se­nior in­struc­tor Tony Brand said the come-and-try day ap­plied to most age groups.

“We’re urg­ing peo­ple to make the most of an op­por­tu­nity to come and see if they would to like take it up,” he said.

“It’s for any­one 15 years and older, per­haps younger peo­ple who might like to con­sider a ca­reer in the air­line in­dus­try, but it is also for peo­ple who would like to sim­ply learn how to fly.

“And, like many clubs, we’re strug­gling for num­bers and are keen for more peo­ple to be in­volved.”

The cost for a per­son to go up for a trial in­tro­duc­tory flight is $50. There will also be a bar­be­cue lunch pro­vided free of charge.
