Antonov AN-2 Joyflights
As announced at the last general meeting club members have the unique opportunity to fly in a genuine Russian airliner, the Antonov AN 2. Not only operates this gigantic, single engine biplane out of Lilydale, but the joyflight actually will be Lilydale - P&DARCS Field - Lilydale. Estimated to take a bit over an hour the scenic flight will transverse the Dandenong Ranges and culminate in a sweeping turn over our model field.
But wait, there is more....the Lilydale model aero club has invited P&DARCS members to visit and fly at their field before or after the joyflight.
The AN 2 is licensed to carry 9 Passengers. As at the last weekend I have already 1 flight fully booked.
Please put your name on the list in the club house notice board, or contact me or any committee member direct.
The cost for the flight is estimated to be $100.
Check the website www.an2.com.au for more interesting facts about the aircraft and crew. And compare the prices for the flights and marvel at the incredible bargain on offer for us.
See you on board, comrades. Roly Gaumann
