About Us


Narrogin is an aerotow club. Aerotowing is by two Piper PA-25-235 Pawnees, one of which has the rather iconic registration VH-TUG.

Many have tried to purchase or appropriate this but, it won’t happen. It is the legacy of a previous tugmaster, the late Roger Vaile, who took a great deal of trouble to search it out and secure it for posterity.

There is an extensive club-owned glider fleet of two seaters and single seaters available for hire.

The two seaters are:

The Two Seaters

Two Puchacz SZD 50-3
Which are Polish designed and manufactured and very popular with our members. They are mainly used for ab initio pilot training and air experience flights.

Two DG 505 Elan Orion
Which everyone agrees was probably the best purchases we ever made. They are used by the club members for local and cross country mutual flights and for cross country coaching. The DG’s are also used for air experience flights when a Puchacz is not available.

The Single Seaters

An Astir CS77.
These are very comfortable, easy to fly, Standard Class gliders, good cross country performers and the first aircraft our trainees are converted into after going solo in a Puchacz.

A Discus CS.
This is our high performance single seater and another Standard Class glider. Ideal for longer, faster, higher cross country flights and gliding competitions.

There are also many gliders in the private fleet, all of them the pride and joy of their owners. Types are the usual eclectic mix common to most gliding clubs. We also have a couple of ultralights that are owned by club members and hangared in a suitably quarantined corner of the T hangar area.
