Without thinking too hard, there would be something on just about every month. Go to the "Flying to page" for a list of some annual events. Here we list specific times and dates of a few events so that you may diarise them and plan to attend.
Inaugural Merimbula FlyIn
April 23rd- 25th 2016
Merimbula Aero Club is reviving an old Casey tradition for their 2016 fly-in: The Red Baron Ball. This is a party harking back to the wood, wire and fabric days of Pfalzes and Sopwiths, white scarves, johdpurs and oompahpah bands. It's a one-night riot of colour and costume that gives everyone a chance to openly express their inner WWI fighter pilot. With songstress Nichaud Fitzgibbon channelling the likes of Marlene Dietrich and Vera Lynn, partygoers will be able to reminisce about a time and place that they were actually never at. Old Casey flyer or not, it is sounding like the will be no place in the world like Merimbula on 23 April. Contact the aero club on 02 6495 1306 for tickets and other information.
Remember these are great days to introduce new people to the wonderful world of flying. So if you know of someone who may have uttered those magical words " I love airplanes" or "I wouldn't mind trying a short flight" then make sure to invite them. Talk with one of the aircraft owners and I am sure some how, some one would give them a treat to remember.
