If you aren’t in this photo, you’ve missed a fabulous few days in the seafood capital of South Australia.  We dined on the freshest of local seafoods (oysters, prawns, calamari, tuna, salmon, etc.) washed down with ample supplies of local wines.

The Australian Mooney Pilots Association – AMPA – was established in 1991 with purpose of supporting Mooney owners in Australia, fostering goodwill and comradeship, safety and Mooney specific aircraft performance and operations through fly-ins, safety seminars and other activities.

AMPA runs an annual Pilot Safety Program, alternating between the eastern states and Western Australia. The program is designed to share knowledge and experiences among Mooney pilots, provide refresher training on Mooney specific operations and performance and improve the flying skills of members.

Membership also gives you a discounted rate on your AOPA membership and access to cheaper aircraft insurance through AMPA’s arrangement with Gallagher Insurance. 

Our Events Calendar includes at least 2 fly-ins each calendar year. The first is held early in the year and coincides with our AGM. It usually incorporate a follow on flying adventure for several days. The second is usually held later in the year.

Other fly-ins occur when there is an event of particular interest, or spontaneously when members simply get together for fun and camaraderie.
