Ready to Fly

The PICO "Annual National" PPG Fly-In is the original and biggest PPG fly-in in Australia. Held over a number of days, the 2019 will be the 22nd anniversary of this event and every year it attracts pilots from all over Australia and sometimes overseas as well.

Hosted at Jeff Hoffmann’s property at Milbrulong, NSW, yellow canola and patchwork paddocks of colour stretch as far as you can see. You can also see all the latest gear there, from wings to motors to accessories. There is usually also plenty of spare parts to add to your toolbox if necessary. The area is outstanding for XC trips from 20km to well over 150km.

Jeff always has a magic take-off and landing site allocated to the event. A site where take-offs can take place in all directions, sloping downhill for ease of take-off, within an environment with few powerlines, friendly landowners and suitable for all level of skills.

In order to make the stay at Milbrulong enjoyable, we welcome families. If spouses are only marginally interested in the sport, there is retail therapy available in the historic “Verandah” town of Lockhart and the bustling inland economic centre Wagga Wagga, both only minutes way from Milbrulong.

Your stay can be at the Milbrulong oval, where you can pick your own grassed site area, there are hot showers, toilets,  a kitchen and an electric BBQ to cook your meals on plus there is a hall where we have our safety briefings, communal meals and for socializing.

If you prefer, motel/hotel accommodation as well as a caravan park is available at nearby Lockhart about 10 minutes away by car.

On behalf of the Pico Club Exec we would like to invite you to join us in the festivities, have a go at the friendly Pico games, touch base with your friends and just…have a good time.

So pencil into your diary and we will make sure you will feel welcome.
