Janna Hilbrink, Secretary for FunFlight for a number of years, has recently handed in her resignation. Janna has been instrumental in working closely with our Charity Organisations to drive their involvement in our FunFlight days, as well as being a cornerstone in our committee as Secretary. It is through Janna's dedication and professionalism that we have been able to build the platform that we have. Janna is involved in many charity acitivities, and will be spending her time focusing on these other groups.
Janna, on behalf of both the FunFlight Management Groups, the Charities, the Pilots and AeroClubbs, but most importantly the thousands on smiling kids whose lives you have touched, THANK YOU.

From our humble beginnings in 2007, where we flew 130 kids and their families from Tyabb Aiport in Melbourne, FunFlight has now flown over 4000 passengers! This has not been without little bumps on the road, and the most important thing that we are working on in the next six months is professionalising our organisation. FunFlight completely relies on volunteers, and a determined group within the organising committee has taken on this job. Watch this space I would say!
We will do a big fundraising push, to ensure that we can keep doing what we are doing for many years to come. We are looking at doing more smaller events during the year, as well as individual FunFlights for families that can do with that extra support.
And then we are discussing bringing FunFlight overseas! We have had interest from a few clubs in other countries to participate in FunFlight, which is very exciting. FunFlight Australia will not be organising these overseas events, or finance them, but we will give our support to the local organisations that want to set up FunFlight there. FunFlight Smiles Around The World!
