Junior Vice President
Some of you know me as a former committee member of the PCFC , where I have been a member since 2014. I am a PPL NVFR PIFR with around 1600 hours in my log book. My claim to fame is acquiring the club aircraft we currently enjoy . I have significant experience with aircraft ownership and operation. I owned and operated a C172 for over 2000 hours of operation , on line at flying schools and I have done most of the schedule 8 ( pilot approved ) maintenance tasks and assisted at least five 100 hour inspections. Additionally I hold , Airfield Safety Officer qualifications and have experience as Airside Works Safety Officer on Point Cook , Melbourne and Essendon , plus smaller fields. I currently hold C4 drivers authority on Point Cook which can be useful for access to Taxiways and Runways in case of incident accident. Currently , a retired airborne grey nomad , working 20ish days a year , I hope to rejoin the committee to assist the fantastic work being done by the current executive team.
G’day Ladies and Gents,
My name is Michael Lee and I will be applying for the position of Committee Member. I’ve been a part of PCFC for a good couple of years or so and you may very well have first spoken to me when you were looking for this amazing establishment as I am the first mobile point of contact for all new members.
I am also currently in the team that will be doing the 50 hour oil change for all aircraft on base to ensure that our aircraft is never grounded for too long. Let’s make sure to keep those birds in the sky!
Any questions I and would be more than happy to answer.
I am very excited about the effort members on our current committee have been putting in to make the club a wonderful organization to be involved in and I would like to help by becoming a Social Member on the committee.

If re-elected to the committee I will continue to assist the club in any way I can. My current contributions include; induction, airside and refuelling training

Adam is now one of the RAAF approved Trainers and has participated in both the Induction and Airside Training of new members.
Adam has also jointly participated in bringing “in house” the 50 hr oil changes on our club aircraft, thus minimising the time the club aircraft are off base.

Adam Ryan has been on the Committe since July 2017 and he has shared the Committee’s vision of making flying fun and affordable for all.
As an active flying member and a long term committee member I am passionate about the PCFC. I am keen to facilitate flying out of Pt Cook and to further improve on our relations with the RAAF.
I am particularly proud of the PCFC and its involvement in the Fun Flight day.
