Ballarat-based ST Aerospace Academy in Deniliquin until next Thursday.TYLA HARRINGTON August 8, 2014 3:43am
ST Aerospace Academy returned to Deniliquin on Monday for the fifth time this year.
The Ballarat-based flying training school has been travelling to Deniliquin since 2010 and usually visits the area six times each year ‘‘depending on the weather in Ballarat’’.
For the next week, students will be flying over Deniliquin and district practising their piloting skills.
ST Aerospace Academy operations manager Ian Ruddick said the school uses the Deniliquin Airport for training and navigation exercises when Ballarat’s poor winter weather prevents flying.
‘‘This time we have 20 students and eight aircraft,’’ Mr Ruddick said.
‘‘We arrived here on Monday and we will leave Thursday next week.
‘‘Usually we start coming to Deniliquin at the beginning of June and visit up until the middle of September.’’
Mr Ruddick said academy staff and students ‘‘love’’ coming to Deniliquin.
‘‘We are very happy to be in Deniliquin,’’ he said.
‘‘The town is welcoming. The Globe Hotel always does good deals for our meals and they are quality meals.
‘‘We also use local accommodation.’’
