Sydney Flight College has been working hard to develop relationships with regional and other state capital flying clubs. Specifically, the club captain has been working with the Royal Victorian Aero Club (RVAC) to develop closer ties and we have been invited to participate in an event they are helping organise.
The basic idea is to fly 100 aeroplanes over Point Cook, home of the RAAF, the Shrine of Remembrance, and over Melbourne on Sunday 28 March 2021, to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Australian Air Force. Technically, this will not be a formation of 100. The event is best described as a Balbo, or an Air Armada. This means there will be multiple smaller formations working together to fly a large number of aircraft over Melbourne in the same timeframe.
This would be an awesome weekend to fly and visit Melbourne whilst taking the opportunity to check out the Royal Victorian Aero Club as a base. We would also recommend you check out their Flight Deck restaurant; a great place to fly-in for a meal.
