Late last year, Sydney Flight Training joined forces with the newly re-established Royal Aero Club of NSW to provide them with a Part 141 until they receive approval for their own from CASA.
From January 9th-14th, 35 young people aged 14-17 from around NSW took part in a Flight Training camp at Camden Airport. Students stayed at the University of Sydney campus and participated in briefings, flights, ground theory, and several fun activities including moonlight cinema and karaoke!
Sydney Flight Training provided both IJD (PA28) and KKB (C152) to the Royal Aero Club for use during the camp. IJD flew over 26 hours and KKB a huge 44 hours across the nine days. These were just two of the seven aircraft involved along with fifteen instructors including SFT’s Kayla and Aaron who were keen to volunteer their time and share their knowledge.
In total, just under 202 hours were flown with 532 touch and go’s and 3000L of fuel used. Three first solos and two training trea solos were completed – a fantastic achievement! Important first steps in an aviation career which we are delighted to have been a part of.
