Belubula Ballooning
JOIN OUR BALLOON TREK TO AUSFLY – WAGGA WAGGA TO NARROMINE   In September of this year the Sporting Aircraft Association of Australia is presenting a major aviation event AUSFLY at Narromine. This inaugural event will take place over three days from 13th to 16th September and will bring together sport and recreation aviators in all forms of aircraft.   The SAAA is a group of aviation enthusiasts assisting each other to build, maintain and operate experimental amateur built aircraft, which includes amateur built balloons. As a member of the SAAA I was approached by one of their executive members to see if we (balloonists) were interested in having our amateur built balloons on show at this inaugural event. I subsequently spoke with Nigel Flynn, another balloon builder, regarding our involvement as SAAA members and we came up with an interesting approach to this event.   Our plan is to organise a Camping/Caravaning Balloon Trek over seven days commencing with a flight over THE ROCK, SW of WAGGA WAGGA, then TEMORA, WEDDIN MOUNTAINS, BOORAWA, CANOWINDRA, MOLONG, finishing at NARROMINE as part of the AUSFLY event.   PROPOSED TRAVEL ITINEARY Friday 7th Sept.                Balloonists meet in WAGGA WAGGA – O/night there   Saturday 8th Sept.           Travel to “THE ROCK” – launch balloons there.                                             Following flight – travel to WAGGA WAGGA & refuel.                                             Travel on to TEMORA Aero Club – Overnight there.   Sunday 9th Sept.               Launch our balloons at TEMORA Aero Club.                                              Following flight – refuel at TEMORA.                                              Travel to WEDDIN MOUNTAINS – Overnight there. -.
