Op­por­tu­nity to take to the sky

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sports -

Prospec­tive pilots and aspir­ing avi­a­tors are in­vited to Hor­sham Fly­ing Club on Satur­day to give glid­ing a go.

Pres­i­dent Michael Sud­holz said the club was try­ing to re­cruit new mem­bers and any­one in­ter­ested in tak­ing up glid­ing was wel­come.

He said there was a par­tic­u­lar em­pha­sis on get­ting more fe­male pilots to join the club.

“We’re try­ing to wel­come some new mem­bers to the club and we’re par­tic­u­larly hop­ing to get some fe­male pilots be­cause we do not have too many women at the club,” he said.

“There’s been a push in the sport of glid­ing to get more women in­volved and we want to sup­port that. If there is any­body who has thought about fly­ing be­fore, we’d en­cour­age you to come down be­cause it’s not hard to learn and we have a mod­ern fleet of air­craft to learn in.”

Mr Sud­holz said any­one who at­tended could take a ride in a glider, with a small fee to cover in­surance.

The come and try day will start at Hor­sham Fly­ing Club at 10am and fin­ish about 5pm.

Any­one want­ing more in­for­ma­tion can call Mr Sud­holz on 0417 585 747 or Sel­wyn El­lis on 0427 824 925.
