Thank you for your support

A BIG Thank you to the community of Jamestown area that supported the Jamestown Flying Group’s sausage sizzle on February 1st or donated in our donation tins around Jamestown.

When a pilot that flew in our 2015 Air Spectacular – Dick Lang and his son died in the fire at Kangaroo Island the Jamestown Flying Group felt compelled to do a fund raiser for the people of Kangaroo Island.  Dick Lang was an experienced adventurer, tour operator and bush pilot, and his son, Clayton, was a well-respected plastic surgeon in Adelaide.  Our sincere condolences go to anyone that was affected by the fires around Australia.  

We decided to hold a sausage sizzle and trading table and to make donation tins available.  We were surprised and amazed that we raised $1,500 for the Kangaroo Island Mayoral Relief and Recovery Bushfire Fund.  

We had old club member from Adelaide – Malcolm Axford and a pilot that drove up from Freeling, due to the bad weather for flying – Jeff Schuster.  The event was heavily supported by the members of the Jamestown Flying Group as a great social afternoon.

Thanks again for all of our supporters.
