In August 2016 we initiated an agreement with the Aero Club of Broken Hill to conduct flying training in their Tecnam P92 Super Echo at YBH.
The Aero Club plan to eventually re-establish their own training facility, but as this may take some time we have agreed to establish a temporary satellite school, using their recently purchased aircraft under our banner.
The first training flights took place on the third and fourth of August in somewhat adverse weather conditions but we found the Tecnam to be a pleasant handling aircraft quite suitable for the job.
At this stage we are planning to be in Broken Hill for two or three days mid-week every second week or so but this will no doubt vary depending on demand.
Anyone wishing to try a Trial Instructional Flight or to commence training should contact Peter Jinks in Broken Hill on 0488 971614. Their aircraft is also available for hire to club members.
Costs for Broken Hill training will have to be a little more due to travel expenses and the higher operating cost of the Tecnam, but will be kept as low as possible consistent with safe operations.
