Sydney Microlight centre Pty Ltd will close officially as at 30th June 2018,unless a new operator is found.




  HISTORICAL INFO:- In the early 1990s, Paul Haines took an idea and turned it into one of the pre-eminent microlight flying-schools on the Australian East Coast. He taught people to fly weightshift microlight aircraft ("trikes") at Wollongong Regional Airport so they could realise their dream of learning to fly and owning their own aircraft. In doing so Paul rightly became something of a legend in Australian microlight circles, achieving the rank of Instructor Examiner within the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia (HGFA).

  Being based within relatively easy reach of Sydney, the Southern Tablelands, The Blue Mountains and the South Coast, Paul's school continued well into the 21st century. When Paul retired, Ned McIntosh took over day-to-day running of the school, eventually becoming the owner and Chief Flying Instructor of the Sydney Microlight Centre Pty Ltd.

  Time marches on, and the current owner wishes to retire from weightshift flying at the end of the 22017-2018 financial year, meaning the centre will close with effect from that date. To assist winding up the business, no new students will be taken after February 2018 and Trial Instructional Flights will be discontinued once the existing supplies of the HGFA temporary membership forms are exhausted. This will most likely happen in February 2018.
