The Feilding Flying Club was origionaly established as the Middle Districts Sports Flying Club in 2000 by group of enthusiastic veteran aviators. Being well aware that the high cost of learning to fly was proving prohibitive for many who wished to take to the skies they decided to do something about it. Gaining funding from a number of sources they purchased an aircraft, built a hangar and clubroom then set about training instructors.
As the club flourished and members flew to aerodromes and events around the country it became evident that few knew where we came from so in 2014 members decided to change our name to the Feilding Flying Club.
Founding Members of the Feilding Flying Club
Carl Christensen 1928 - 2015
It was a sad day for the Feilding Flying Club when on the 4th of January this year Carl passed away.
He was a founding member of the club and his energy and enthusiasm for flying is largely responsible for where we are today. His vision was to create an enviroment where ordinary folks especially youngsters can realise their ambition to take to the skies in a powered aircraft at an affordable cost. Well carl we recon you cracked it, nearly 70 members with several under 16 are sure to carry your enthusiasm on to the next generation of aviators.
