Maleny FLX enjoys
special presentation

by Leeland Mackenzie

Maleny FLX appreciated Geoff Pinkerton volunteering his time recently to share his passion for model aircraft.  Mr Pinkerton is a model aircraft builder and flying instructor from a model aircraft club at Coolum.  He brought several examples of model aircraft he had constructed and flies himself.

He also showed video footage of a recent international model aircraft show held at the Coolum airfield.  Staff and students were amazed at the speed, power, versatility and the precision flying of helicopters, jet and prop planes.  Mr Pinkerton also described and displayed the process of building model aircraft using fiberglass-molding techniques.

From this we learned to appreciate the time and effort that goes into the construction of model aircraft.
