iSoar Cobram 2019

Posted on Nov 20, 2019 in Event Reports

12th Annual Aerotow event report By Daryl Doyle Well the weekend started with a gusty wet Friday night with the usual faces rolling into the field from lunch time till well after supper. Filling the car park and pit area with the prospects of lots of beautiful aircraft being flown over the weekend. Saturday morning woke  us with rain falling which hung around till late afternoon which slow us all down a little , but the time was used for good conversation and setting up models . A few brave souls competed in a bit of smitty spitty combat (foam combat spitfires) and a few flights with some nitro slimers in the breezy conditions. As the day came to and end lots of happy pilot lined up for a roast chicken dinner and veggies followed by a huge passion...

Cobram Cup Aerotow 2014

Posted on Feb 18, 2015 in Event Reports

After another great Cup weekend, I did a small write up of the weekend and collected a whole lot of images from various people: In its seventh year, the “I Soar Cobram” event has now grown to be the largest scale soaring event in Victoria and standing shoulder to shoulder with the largest events in Australia. Over the 4 days (and for some, 5 or 6), we get to see a range of scale sailplanes, tow planes, and this year was also a great example of changing weather conditions as well… Check out the full article of The Oz Scale Soaring website....

Cobram Scale Aerotow 2013

Posted on Jan 4, 2014 in Event Reports

I look back on the weekend with withdrawal symptoms wishing I was still there. It’s been a while since I have had such a great weekend of flying, fun and camaraderie. The Cup weekend event run by the MMAC at Cobram has been slowly building over the past few years, and this year, it’s fourth was by far the biggest and most impressive. All the image galleries from the event available here For a few, the weekend started a little earlier with Jason Sagaidak (MMAC President) and a couple of others turning up on the Thursday then a few more on Friday. The Cobram weather turned on the usual wonderful conditions right through to Saturday evening. As the hordes arrived during the course of Saturday morning, Jason and Col made final adjustments to their new sponsored club-managed Tow Plane...

“Cobram Queens” Aero Tow & Fun Fly 8-10th June 2013 (Where-Da-Fukin-H)   Well here we are with our first Queens birthday long weekend Aero Tow & Fun Fly. What started out as a question, “What are you doing for the long weekend?” has turned out to be an awesome fun weekend of aero modeling to the highest level.  A couple of phone calls and a couple of adds on (http://www.scalesoaring.com.au/ &  http://www.mmac.asn.au) has started what will probably be known as “Cobram Queens Aero Tow & Fun Fly”. The forecast for the weekend was for crisp cool air in the morning building up to warmer air with a top of 17deg for Saturday 18deg Sunday and 18deg for Monday with some high level cloud passing through.  As I’m only newbie to the whole scale aero towing scene I wasn’t sure...
