15 Years & 15,000th Passenger Birthday Celebration

As with many other parts of our lives, Covid prevented FunFlight events from taking place for the past three years. FunFlight events resumed with a joyous celebration of twin milestones on 11th February 2023 at Peninsula Aero Club (PAC) in Tyabb.

The PAC event celebrated our 15th birthday. If that wasn't enough, our 15,000th FunFlight passenger experienced their flight, making the day a special opportunity for us all to celebrate this milestone event.

PAC was instrumental in helping to launch FunFlight, hosting the first-ever FunFlight event, and it has organsed a local FunFlight event every year since (with the exception of COVID-groundings).


The fabulous Stef Drury flew into Tyabb Airport to promote the FunFlight event. You can catch his video below and on his YouTube channel:
