The incoming 2016/17 Committee decided that the Friday BBQ should be a regular feature, every Friday evening. Now that daylight savings is with us again, its often ideal conditions to go for a fly,and finish with a BBQ and maybe a beer or glass of wine!
Meet at the MHAC around 6pm any Friday each month, for a social gathering of members and their families & friends. There's generally a couple of committee assigned to cook, and you can volunteer to lend a hand. Drinks are available at the club.
At the conclusion of the BBQ, around 8.00pm, there'll sometimes be a movie for those who want to stay on.
Friday Night the 9th December 2016, we are holding our first feature type film. The film is called "Motor Kite Dreaming". It is a story of two mates who travelled around Australia in their flying machines, visiting outback areas, and Aboriginal folk.
4,000km of Outback Australia. 4 amateur adventurers. 2 second-hand flying machines. And the largest island on earth… What could possibly go wrong?
The ultimate Aussie adventure story. Four amateur adventurers take two microlights – otherwise known as ‘motorbikes with wings’ – and fly them 4,000km across 4 deserts.
This is the tale of Aidan, Daryl and their fiancées’ dream to pull off a daring feat that few have attempted before. Flying from south to north from Adelaide to Broome, the intrepid couples navigate tough flying conditions, crocodile-infested swamps, and their own personalities.
Led by two Aboriginal guides, including rock ‘n roll royalty, Carroll Karpany (Us Mob), the flying circus heads deep into the spiritual heartland of Australia. Soaring through twenty indigenous language nations, they connect with a culture thousands of years old.
As pure cinema, Motorkite Dreaming is the ultimate bird’s eye view of the Australian landscape. Whether they are swooping low over Lake Eyre, or across the Great Sandy Desert, this film offers a perspective few can ever hope to see in their lifetime.
“Motorkite Dreaming takes you on a journey to unexpected places, both spiritually and geographically. It’s a thrilling ride along the songlines of the central desert and the fault lines of the human heart.”
