COMMITTEE

We are here to help, so if you need to get in contact with any of the committee, please get in contact with one of the team and we’ll do our best to help out.

We usually meet on the second Wednesday of every month – while occasionally at  an RSL at 7:00pm more recent meetings have been conducted using a teleconferencing system to save time and money.

FIND A CLUB

NSW has some amazing flying sites and a host of clubs that cover NSW. While not every region people can fly has a club, contacting the closest club to where you might be flying can lead to  some great flying site advice and maybe someone else to fly with. The good news is if you are a NSW pilot you do not have to pay additional memberships to fly at other NSW clubs.

The NSWHPA has made sure that all NSW sites are free to fly at for NSW pilots.
