Melbourne Coastal Route Reminder

If you're flying the Melbourne Coastal Route around Station Pier, the recommended altitudes were changed in December.  The VTC and VNC are NOT being recalled and re-released. Your charts, if paper, are WRONG and will be until the next release in May 2019. Yes, you're expected to have read the NOTAM.  Both Australian EFB vendors, AvPlan and OzRunways, have patched the charts in their software. Instructions for how to enable this patch in AvPlan are here.   We recommend that if you're flying around Station Pier that you exercise EXTREME CAUTION not to be embarrased.

Where are they now - Jack Terry

Last week one of our former students achieved his wings with the RAAF after a very interesting journey.Jack Terry did his TIF with us in January 2011 and achieved his General Flying Progress Test (now RPL) in September while finishing Year 12. Working hard as a tennis coach and later as a baggage handler at Tullamarine he completed his PPL in April 2012 and then steadily built experience over the next year and a half including getting his tailwheel and aerobatic ratings and flying friends up to the Birdsville Races.
