What a day!
On Saturday 16th November SFC opened its doors for our annual open day. We knew from ticket sales it was going to be busy, but the event exceeded all expectations and smashed the record for the busiest open day ever.
Prior to this year we had a record of 120 visitors, and we finished this year on a staggering 230! It was also a fantastic mix of customers with interest evenly split between Diploma of Aviation interest and self-paced RPL/PPL enquiries. We also had a number of students visit who are disillusioned with their current flight school, and are looking for a change. To keep on the numbers theme we flew 62 trial instructional flights on the day, and got through 700 sausages and 40 loaves of bread!
Matt Hall, SFC Ambassador and Red Bull Air Race World Champion, was in attendance and was popular with our guests for ‘selfies’. We also had most of our fleet on display, and raised a significant amount of money through donations to ‘Fly Pink’ for those who wanted to experience our FMX motion flight simulator.
On behalf of the board and management team, we extend a high thank you to all of our staff and volunteer students who made the day such a success.
