Monthly News - January 2013

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to you all.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Godden and Bill Von Sennet for their constant support throughout the past year.  We would not be here without them.

Great Australian Air Rally 2013
(GAAR 2013)

It's that time of the year and the GAAR is on again in February.  Registration is now open and the web site can be accessed from the Bluegrass Airlines home page or the link below.  As usual, Andrew promises a challenging test of flight planning, flying and navigation skills and I am sure he has something up his sleeve as a surprise for somewhere along the route.
