“Birds of a Feather Flock Together” - VSA State Championships 2018

And flock they did…..albeit more like seagulls in a rain storm that is! As they say, hold a gliding comp and you will get rain. Prediction held true. At least four days were achieved and a competition declared.

The Championship was held at Benalla from Sunday 9th December 2018 to Saturday 15th December 2018 inclusive.

There were two class groups – Un-Ballasted from which the Club Class championship was determined and Ballasted, from which the FAI class championship was determined.

Horsham Week Competition

53rd Horsham week - 2 - 9 February 2019


 The Horsham Week competition has operating continuously since 1967 and is an opportunity for friendly competition flying in some of the safest country in Australia (nearly every paddock is a one mile square airfield standard surface).   The Horsham Club wanted this competition to be one where pilots who were quite inexperienced at competition flying could be welcome, feel that they were amongst friends and mentors, and where the fear of outlandings would not stop people from having fun. horshamweek

The competition was started by The Wimmera Soaring Club (now Horsham Flying Club) which ran it continously for 38 years. Over these years this competition became so highly valued by the participating pilots that when the Wimmera Soaring Club wanted to retire in 2002, the pilots took it over and have run it successfully since then as a competition of the pilots, for the pilots, by the pilots.  

The competition is run at minimum cost and keeps sufficient funds in the bank to cope with two successive wipe outs due to bad weather.
