The Diamond40 aircraft will come from the Coolangatta Australian Wings Academy which is one of the proponents of the proposed training academy in Glen Innes.

The company has been able to reorganize their training schedule to bring the aircraft to town.

Mr Neil Hansford, Director of AAFT said the plane is scheduled to land at the airport at 10.30a.m and soon after will fly the circuits of each runway.

“James Gresham from the Aero Club will co-pilot the aircraft to ensure that full circuit compliance is maintained.

“We are then proposing that the aircraft will fly over town to let the town’s folk try and hear the aircraft, which we doubt they will.

“We would hope all this activity will be concluded by 12:00 so that all of the AAFT Directors are back in town for the workshop,” Mr Hansford said.

The full AAFT board of Kingsley Mundey, Ian Vanderbeek, Phil Sweeney and Mr Hansford will be available to speak to at the open day which will be held in the conference room at the Glen Innes library from 12 till 6p.m.

Council representatives will also be present to answer any questions people may have as to the long term arrangements between AAFT and council.

Mr Hansford said the open day would be an informal gathering where people could speak to any of the board members and look at their maps and plans of the proposed academy.

“We look forward to Friday and being able to help allay all fears,” Mr Hansford said.
