Hastings District Flying Club

where people who believe in your dreams come together since 1958

Vision

 

On 8 September 1958, Hastings District Flying Club was formed. By 1960, CFI Barrie Abbott was furiously promoting the club and the beautiful district of Port Macquarie, through many social events, including air pageants. The club was encouraging older people to learn to fly, though the emphasis was particularly on younger people keen to progress to commercial aviation. Till this day, the intent remains similar with students ranging from 15 to 94 years of age.

 

In 2007, HDFC Club President Rod Davison set a vision and grand plans that the Hastings District Flying Club must have programs that are attractive for pilots, their families, social members, aspiring pilots, visiting pilots and members of the general public, reviving the vibrancy set by Barrie Abbott. Plans include timely and effective social communications through HDFC Propwash newsletters, the media and leveraging technology, wherever possible. We see over time how club members, their families and friends become passionately involved in fulfiling this vision and it is a club where people who believe in flying dreams come together.

 

Let's continue on keeping the high standard that HDFC is known for, a reputation that is thoroughly deserved ... Ed Godschalk, Propwash Editor.

Club Activities

 

There is an obvious air of camaraderie in HDFC. This is due to the range of social and flying activities which pilots, their families, friends and visiting pilots participate. Such activities include Pilot Proficiency Day, Tri Club Competition, Fly and Spy, Sausage Sizzles, Restaurant Nights and many more. I would urge you to join HDFC, where people who believe in your dreams come together.
