Young local flight enthusiasts can now get a real taste of taking to the skies, all without leaving the ground. The Lilydale Squadron of the Australian Air League has introduced computerised flight simulators into its activities.
The Australian Air League has introduced a new Balsa Model Flying Competition which will be held as its inaugural competition at the Air League Review 2014.
The introduction of this new initiative was a result of comments made by members in a recent survey of members in relation to activities at the Air League Review.
This competition, which is focused on flight, the key to our organisation, is designed to bring a bit of fun & entertainment for members of all ages & their families at the Review.
Details can be downloaded from the Australian AIr League website here.
From 1976 until 1983 "The Sullivans" told the story of an Australian family in WW2. Renowned for its high production values and historical accuracy, in 1977 the show saw youngest son Terry who dreamt of flying for the RAAF join the Australian Air League to help him with his dreams of flight.
Thanks to the generosity of Crawford Productions the Air League has been given permission to reproduce a number of clips from this show.
