Outback Morning Tea

On Sunday the 17th of November, we're hosting a big Outback Morning Tea to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service in celebration of Rev. John Flynn's birthday (founder of the RFDS). Bronni will be cooking up a ridiculous number of her Nan's Scones (best recipe in the world), and you'll be able to get a big fluffy one with a huge dollop of jam and whipped cream for $3 - free tea and coffee provided!

All proceeds are going to our mates in the sky and the bush and we love a big ole social event, so come out for chat on the grass, or maybe even book a tootle around the sky to commemorate! If you like, you can also help out by chipping in and making a donation through our fundraising page. It only takes a minute and any donations you can give will go a long way to helping us reach our goal. We'd love to have some volunteers to help out on the day or to help with catering, so let us know if you're able to help out.

Important Information - Covid-19

As the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation continues to unfold, the well-being of all staff, students, customers and our community is at the forefront of our minds. As such, as of COB this afternoon (Tues 24th March) the Lilydale Flying School will cease Dual Flying training apart from some limited flight testing. Solo Flying and Private Hiring will continue as normal and instructors will be on hand to assist and supervise with ninety day check flights. Lilydale Airport (and Lilydale Flying School and Yarra Valley Aviation) will be continuing its other operations 7 days per week including Charter flights, Fuel Sales and Aircraft Maintenance. This all means you will still be able to take to the air!
