Whats happening in AAFC

The Air Adventure Flying Club is providing more than 10 years of flight training, 10 years of aircraft rental and 10 years of happy pilots. Being one of the biggest flying clubs in South East Asia, the Air Adventure Flying Club.

In just 10 years the AAFC has attracted and provided for more than 500 members flight training and leisure flying sunrise to sunset 365 days a year. We are proud to have members from as far away as Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago, USA, Sudan, South Africa, Nigeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Ecuador, Portugal, Russia, Japan, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and of naturally Malaysia. 

500 members and endless memories and experiences with our beloved ladies 9M NCU – 9M TFC – 9M JFA and N1188U.

…. and we are working hard to improve and expand and renew ourself….

A new set of wheels, and we are now able to get to and from the hangar in style, with air-condition, music and most of all dry….. 

A new training and office facility located at the Berjaya hangar is ready and well appreciated by all that are drooping by for an inspection of the facilities. Still we are not abandoning the hangar at Wirakris, we will maintain another operation center and aircraft cleaning service from that location.

A new aircraft. We have been so fortunate that the new owner of 9M- ZAR is allowing all members and students to make use of this 172 SP model that comes with lots of new dials at the cockpit. This very nice and powerful aircraft is ready to soar as soon as we have the C of A  worked out….. making the AAFC fleet  a whopping 6 aircraft… and all of them are Cessna.

Hangar talk

We have a new set of wheels…..

after years in our iconic Land Rover, we finally got a set of wheels equipped with Aircon and comfortable seats….. final inspection passed.

 

 

 

 

And another engine will be shipped to Lycoming USA this week…..

all we are waiting is for…. Mutalib getting the box ready and Andreas to send it to KLIA… 

Got his ticket to fly…..

after a super long wait we have Kanag aka adv 316 that has passed his PPL flight test. Congratulations to him. 

 

9M-JFA our Cessna 150M – Engine overhaul progress –

AWAITING NEW DATES- PENDING MAINTENANCE ON AIRCRAFT - adventure outing to Tioman via Segamat and Senai. - DIVING will be an option in Tioman

With our friends from other Clubs this convoy of aircraft will fly from Subang via Segamat for a refuel and crew change to Tioman. In Tioman we will be conducting take off and landings and sign out new pilots for their solo flight to Tioman.

For the seasoned pilots and those who are more into diving, Adventure 229 aka Lee a diving instructor will be ready to take us down to the bottom of the sea where we will do some underwater photography. If we have students that needs to be certified as divers, a perfect time to do so.

August 18 & 19 - the Aviators on Motorbikes on Pangkor....

A trip with our aircraft from Subang to Pangkor, a race to make Ito for breakfast at the famous seafood noodle curry. To facilitate our trip on the island we have motorbikes available to take us for breakfast and to explore the island.

Practice for take off and landing will be for the “to be checked out PANGKOR” pilots. Sunset will be observed while sipping on a cool and tasty drink at our favourite dinner and drinking place; Daddy’s place.

Overnight stay with our good friends from the waterfall Chalet and after a good night stay next morning a flight to Ipoh. In Ipoh we will indulge in Dim Sum before setting course back to Subang. Arrival there… before the thunderstorm.

Please confirm with Sebastian you attendance and reserve your seat in one of the aircraft. We hope that TFC is ready by that time..... it has been too long of a wait to get her to the skies again.

We needed to upgrade and provide more office space as well as classroom and a briefing space.

This call for help was heard by all members.

A donation drive has generated almost 40.000 RM. Besides this Hugh amount of money we have furniture and computers as well as a TV from David, John, Steven, Rocky and others that like to remain anonymous. 

Thank you to all who have come to the call within minutes of sending out the help message.  

We will be placing all names and that memorable date where we came all together on a plaque next to the entrance to remind all of us that together we can achieve so much more…. and fly high again.
