Airborne Outreach is Clear for Take-off

Destination Wycheproof

20161128_151531.jpgFollowing the success of the initial Aviation Science programs within Melbourne/Geelong, the small town of Wycheproof in North Central Victoria was the destination of the very first Sci-Fly airborne outreach program.

A three hour plus drive from Melbourne, or an 80 minute flight for our team in Piper Arrow VH-PAR, the small P-12 College has an enrolment base of approximately 120 students. Providing an engaging and diverse education from Prep to Year 12, the town also boasts fame for its location at the foot of “Mt Wycheproof, the world's smallest mountain” standing at 148 metres above sea level. A 2000 ft orbit was thus not a problem to alert the excited students of our arrival!
