Who Are We
The Airtourer Association is a group of enthusiasts for the Australian designed Airtourer Aircraft. A related but separate organisation is the Airtourer Co-operative which owns the intellectual property of the Airtourer design and is responsible for ongoing airworthiness. The Airtourer Co-operative has the support of the Airtourer Association and is included in the web site. Please explore our site and share our enthusiasm for a great little aeroplane.
Thanks from Doreen Treble
John's love of flying and being a member of the Airtourer Association was his passion over many years. He enjoyed the company of fellow enthusiasts, it meant a great deal to him to be able to share that part of his life with so many friends and we have wonderful memories.
I thank you for the cards, letters, flowers and messages of condolence that have brought great comfort to me and my family.
Last Flight - Bob Peak
The Association was saddened to learn of the passing of Bob Peak on 1st August after suffering a heart attack. Bob and wife Pat owned an immaculate Airtourer Super 150, VH-EQG and were regular visitors at our fly-ins. They have provided valuable support to the Co-operative over many years as custodians of the Airtourer drawings.
Airtourer Association members from Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT and Victoria joined Temora friends, and in particular the Temora Antique Motor Club, in celebrating Bob's life and giving him an appropriate sendoff.
Our thoughts go out to Pat and their sons Chris and Jon at this difficult time.
Winter Lunch 2015
The Association winter lunch attracted 22 members and friends, and a number of apologies, for this year’s theme which was an Indian lunch. A new experience for some.
Congratulations to David Wearne, in company with Beryl Marshall, and Andrew Clement who were able to fly in. Also welcome to Ivan and Nola Porteous who attended their first Airtourer Association event.
Some even carried on into the evening and were seen roaming the streets of Kyneton the next morning.
Letter to CASA regarding Proposed AD/PROP/1 Amdt 3
Earlier this year CASA released a proposed amendment to AD/PROP/1 and requested comment from the aviation community. AD/PROP/1 was originally issued in January 1988 and established minimum overhaul requirements for propellers for Australian registered aircraft.
