Commentary at Wings Over Illawarra 2017

WOI Logo
Steve and Grant joined Ando to once again provide commentary for the Wings Over Illawarra air show at the Illawarra Regional Airport just south of Wollongong, NSW (near Sydney). It was a great show with over 30,000 people in attendance across the 6th & 7th of May. Over the two day event Grant & Steve’s dulcet tones provided information and discussion as the various displays took place. Meanwhile, Steven Pam was shooting live streaming video from high on the main grandstand to air show fans from around the world.

Yet another fantastic experience and we’re looking forward to next year’s event which is scheduled for the 5th & 6th of May, 2018.

Grant supplies commentary on Cirrus CAPS deployment over the Blue Mountains

When a Cirrus SR22 demonstrator aircraft had to deploy its CAPS after an engine failure over the Blue Mountains, Grant was contacted by News.com.au to give comment on the system. You can find the comments they used in this report on the incident:

“This was one serious sales pitch: pilot Peter Edwards works for the company that made the plane parachute which saved his life”
