Pictured: Ava and Glyn

Tony a new member who recently went solo, organized for his daughter to take to the sky with aerobatics man Glyn. After a fantastic flight and smooth landing Ava came down with a grin from ear to ear. Here’s hoping that Ava follows in her fathers footsteps and learns to fly.


New Weather Forecasting Website Released

One of our members (Matt G) has been working on a new and improved website that uses the updated weather modeling software to give a more accurate prediction than RASP.  The New soaring forecasts are available from http://vicmet.gliding.asn.au/VIC

This is far more accurate than the old RASP and goes out up to 6 days in advance.

Thanks for your work Matt.




“Flying At Horsham”

Some of our pilots have recently been participating in a week of coaching and training at Horsham, Victoria. For those of you stuck at work, home or on the ground hopefully these pictures will help ease the pain of not flying.

Calling All Members:

The committee has setup an Australian Sports Foundation Project to help GCV raise money to purchase a new 2 seat training aircraft (perhaps a DG1001)
