Latest Edition of Propwash

August 2022

Exercise Black Pitch 2022


You may have heard that I stepped down from the HDFC committee this year due to my busy work schedule. I will continue Propwash and some of the marketing and communications work required by the flying club. It’s hard to step away entirely!! 


With over 110 hours of flying time a month at HDFC plus with the AIAC students starting flying training again, the Port Macquarie skies are indeed very busy.


Propwash August 2022 edition from the Hastings District Flying Club features the following stories:

- Exercise Black Pitch

- Flying physiotherapist Alasdair Thomson

- Australian International Aviation College (AIAC) takes to the skies again

- Flying student achievements

- Flying Competition Pilot Proficiency Results from CFI Ray Lind

- HDFC Events
