Welcome to Sunset Soaring – Radio Control Flying on Sydney’s North Shore
About Sunset Soaring
Sunset Soaring has been flying electric model aircraft and gliders at Golden Jubilee sports field in Wahroonga for over 20 years. We hire the back oval to fly four mornings a week, year round.
We regularly host visitors from other clubs and welcome a chat with members of the public.
Golden Jubilee Flying Field
Our flying field is just about the last remaining decent flying field on Sydney’s North Shore suitable for radio control model aircraft. It is ideal for learning to fly, thermal gliding and sport aerobatics.
Do you want to learn to fly?
The best way to learn is with a club. Our members are friendly and helpful and our instructors follow the formal instruction process developed by our parent body, the AMAS.
Please contact us or drop in on a flying day with any queries you may have.
We had a great Show and Tell evening on 22 June with a 3D printer demonstration and discussion, followed by a presentation of flight stabilisation theory, current hardware and a mockup demonstration model. See presentation for details.
Please give us your ideas for Show and Tell evenings, Fun Fly days and visiting interesting aviation attractions. Next up could be a visit to another club and hopefully another visit to HARS for the next Flying Day.
One of our Associate members recently went to demonstrate model aviation during a STEM inspiration day at a local school. The flight simulator usage went down particularly well. Please let the committee know if you come across any such opportunities to demonstrate the current state of the technology to young people.
Recently we have begun hosting visitors from Aged Care Villages. Please contact us to arrange a visit which consists of a brief description of what we do, describing the types of models and then a flying demonstration. We prefer visits on a weekday (when the weather is amenable) as Sundays can be a bit busy.
