Our Catalina is now at Bankstown Airport, Sydney, NSW undergoing restoration work to obtain its Australian Certificate of Airworthiness.
We still need additional funds to complete this work and welcome any donations large or small.
We are also seeking one or two corporate sponsors who could support the restoration and, once back in the air, ongoing flying activities.
Help us to continue to support the heritage of the Catalina. All donations are gratefully received.
The Cat returns to its new home at Rathmines on Lake Macquarie
on 7 December 2008 enroute to Bankstown.
