Lot 5 Completed
In October our latest hangar home was completed. Lot 5 is owned by Shane and Sue Finney. Shane and Sue grew up in Redcliffe QLD until finishing school and pursuing careers in aviation and nursing. Shane joined the airlines and Sue was a midwife on the Gold Coast where they had two lovely children, Chris and Beth. Overseas called and the family spent the next 30 years in Asia, mainly Hong Kong. The kids returned to careers in Brisbane and Melbourne. After so long away they were very excited to return to Queensland. Shane and Sue will be buying a small seaplane to enjoy the wonders of the Whitsundays and the exciting community at WAVE.
We have be working hard on our new website – hopefully you will find it easier to navigate around and we will also be able to sell tickets to our Runway Dinner as well as our Airshow in 2019 direct from our website. It should be up and running by mid December.
Our 2019 Airshow is in early planning stages with Paul Bennet and his team booked in for another amazing aerobatic flying display. Mark your calendar for 7 September 2019 . Airlie Beach Airshow 2019 is going to be the biggest and best yet. Keep up to date by following our facebook page Whitsunday Airport Shute Harbour Airshow – Airlie Beach.
Our little Lake Buccaneer VG-AWS from our enterance received some cyclone damage (amazingly she was still on her poles) so she is off to Air Whitsunday for some TLC. Looking foward to seeing her back in the air (well poles I guess).
