WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS

Ron (left) was introduced to CCMAC by recent new member Doug (right). Ron has flown before some years ago, but never gained "Wings" This will not take long in light of his assessment flight with Dennis with his Pitts Python bipe!

The lower field has once again been cleared by slashing. The perfect place for an out of control emergency landing!

Frank (right) is a friend of long time member Darren (left). He has joined as an Associate, having previously flown at Maitland. He will now concentrate on gaining Club Wings with CCMAC.

This trio of experienced flyers seemed to be wondering why this Cub gasser could not get off the ground?

Paul L's nice new Seagull looks remarkably like the plane on our front gate sign!

RC JIM

Newish CCMAC member Jim has started his You Tube channel devoted to rc flying and technical tips.

Here are a couple of samples of his excellent productions, one on aerobatics at CCMAC, and the other on the Club's Australia day flag fly past by Gary.

CRASH INVESTIGATION

Sad but true, if you fly RC planes you have to be prepared for the occasional crash, Safety is paramount, the Club enforces, rules. Accidents must be treated seriously.

But .......can be treated with a bit of light relief provided it is only the plane is damaged!

This plane was recovered after spending six months lost in the bush!
