About our Club
Southern Microlight Club
In 1997 a group of trike enthusiasts met to form a 'club for trike pilots and their family / friends' for the purpose of getting together with other pilots to go flying.
Now known as the SOUTHERN MICROLIGHT CLUB. the group meets from 7.00 pm every second Tuesday of the month for a meal in the Bistro of the Manhattan Hotel in Ringwood with the meeting following at 7.30pm.
Anyone already involved in "triking", or interested in learning more of the sport is invited come along to our meeting or contact the Hon. Secretary, Ian Rees, by e-mail to;

Club meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month
At the Manhattan Hotel
Cnr Heatherdale & Canterbury Roads
We generally meet in the Bistro for a meal around 6.45 - 7.00pm and then move to a meeting room at 7.30pm for the meeting.
There is a $22 charge for entry into the Bistro which includes the cost of the meal, when you come in just say that you are joining the Southern Microlight Club and they will point you to our noisy but welcoming table.
We welcome anyone who is interested and there is no pressure to join the club. Come along and check us out.
The club aims to provide;
Organize 2 fly-away trips per year.
Organize 1 Fly-in Club gathering per year
Organise various workshops maintenance, theory etc
Organise informative guest speakers at meetings
To inform and reinform pilots of rules, changing protocols and technologies
Provide a facility for Pilots to meet other Pilots
For new and experienced pilots to share their experiences and to encourage new experiences. Experienced pilots help to give new pilots confidence, knowledge and advice. New pilots give experienced pilots the benefit of their enthusiasm.
The Club wishes to avail the collective knowledge of its members as a resource to other members and make use of the benefits that a group can attract as opposed to what could be done as individuals.
The club does not oversee or take responsibility for any of its members training, flying skills or training needs, each individual pilot remains responsible for his or her own knowledge and development needs.
