Join Me to Uncover secrets of the Hastings from the air!


Form a team of minimum 2 people (Pilot and Observer) to uncover secrets of the Hastings from the air! You can purchase tickets for either Fly & Spy Adventure, Prize Presentation Dinner or both.


Flying commences from Saturday 13th April to Saturday 18th May 2024

Prize Presentation Dinner on Saturday 18th May 6pm

This year your team will again join Barry Bristell in a flying adventure. You will retrace Barry’s flight by first tracking coastal to Point Plomer, then head over to Telegraph Point, then down the railway line to Kendall, then east to the coast and finally back up the coast to Port Macquarie. No navigation skills required. Along the way you will make observations and have lots of fun.


Each team will consist of at least two persons. The pilot need not have a cross country endorsement. Student pilots can fly with an instructor. Think about a catchy team name.


Each team will pay an entry fee of $10. This will help subsidise the prizemoney.
