TBL has just over 2 hours to run until its annual is due.
As you know, we try to run the aircraft as close to 100 hours as possible before dropping them off at YTYA. Therefore, there is enough time for someone to fly into Essendon (weather permitting on Saturday), or perhaps go for lunch somewhere before dropping off at Tyabb.
The club relies on volunteers to take the aircraft to and from Tyabb, and to assist in flying other aircraft over to save the ferry pilot using public transport (which takes close to three hours!).
Sharing the cost of these flights between members helps keep the hire rates down (i.e. so we don’t need to build up a contingency fund to pay for such flights).
If you are able to assist, please let the club know and we’ll co-ordinate.
At this stage, we have blocked TBL out next week for the maintenance to be undertaken – subject to being able to get it there and the owner being able to complete.
