What people said and how it was!
AusFly 2019 was well attended with aircraft, aviators and members of the public arriving that exceeded expectations. Arrival day was meant to Thursday, but aircraft were flying in and parking up by the Tuesday evening.
Here’s some of what people had to say:
“Thank you for organising a great event. It was a privilege to be part of it”
“Can you please pass on my thanks to Lainey for letting us know about the Young Aviators Program at AusFly this year. My son Thomas aged 11, told me on the drive back home to Sydney that it was the best three days of his life. Also a big thank you to the Stoogers Glenn for taking Thomas up for a fly in his RV-7, the aviation seed has definitely been planted in this young aviator. And thanks also to Stoogers Mark who took me up for a flight. It has been way too long since I have been behind the stick and it bought back great memories of earlier times. To all the organisers and volunteers, a big thank you, Best Regards, Steve & Thomas Sheekey”
“I just wanted to say a huge “well done, and thank you” to everyone who either organised, attended or exhibited at Narromine. Despite the red dust and wind, it was a great event and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves in their own individual way. I met up with old friends, made some great new ones, and as it was my first ever time attending Ausfly, I can definitely say : (cue deep, Arnie-style voice….) “I’ll be back!”
” ……….thank you for a great event, I was happy to fly down to meet everyone…….. .I am looking forward to next year. It is such a great opportunity for all aviators. Thank you to all of the hard working organisers.”
“…….We enjoyed the weekend and will be back next year”
“Thank you for all of your amazing work. The AusFly event was a terrific success for Swish Projects, with lots of faces put to names and some very strong enquiry for our engines and aircraft. I will absolutely be back next year. AusFly is my premier display event, and is the one show that I will never miss. Can you please let me know the dates for the 2020 show, and I’ll be sure to make a showing.”
