Permits for take-off

Share

PERMITS have been issued for the Peninsula Aero Club’s 2020 air show to be held in March.

The mayor Cr David Gill said Mornington Peninsula Shire Council was “always committed to seeing the air show proceed”.

“It is a great event for the peninsula, providing significant charitable donations for the local community and a showcase for aero enthusiasts,” he said.

The issuing of permits shows a thaw in relations between the club and the council after the club moved to cancel the event. (“Club abandons air show” The News 13/8/2019).

At the time, PAC president Jack Vevers said he had been unable to reach agreement with the council over permits. He said the shire’s “new permit process” was “unworkable” and time had run out to organise next year’s show.

Cr Julie Morris last week described the air show as a “staple event for the Mornington Peninsula that focuses on giving back to the community”.

The permits can be inspected at the shire’s Mornington office.
