OCT 2010 – In November 2010, i will be attending in Sydney, a conference about Warbird Safety which has been organised by the Australian Warbird Association Limited.
At this conference will be a wide variety of warbird/aviation industry representatives, Australian warbird owners/pilots and some familiar faces.
I will be writing a news report for the AOPA / Australian Pilot magazine for later publication.
I will be using this conference to learn more about the safety factors, industry operations and to hopefully get to meet some people for the first time i have been wanting to meet for a while.
I will have a small display of my photos and flightgear to arouse some interest all going well.
Here is the media release for the conference –
