There will be horses at the party and everyone can enjoy the new lights and plants in front of the clubhouse. Maybe we will even be able to see the TFC aircraft HS-ATJ take a flight. It has now been almost 6 months since the club started repairing this plane to join the line. Come join us. For more info -- email Khun Tui --

1-10 DEC 2014 -- BANG PHRA RUNWAY CLOSED FOR KASET FAIR -- We have just been informed that the Runway at VTBT will be closed for 12 days so the University can use the runway for parking during the Agricultural Fair. Any questions, please contact the TFC office.

29-30 NOV 2014 -- MIKE & BOZ "PRECISION FLYING EVENT" TREMENDOUS SUCCESS -- Hats off to Mike and Boz and Jim for organizing a tremendous event. Boonyarit and a host of fine aviators flew in from Onkarak, and 26 planes total attended the Precision Flying Event at EAA HEADQUARTERS EASTERN AIRPORT. Fritz and Mike Wall won the overall competition and Black Dog tied with Zenair Reggie from Tantawan in the landing competition at 3 meters after the mark. The cookout was delicious, and the sunset spectacular. There was some rain and mountains on the route, which made the event all that more spicy. Very well organized and safe and great to see so many keen aviators from all corners. Gerry was down from Chiangmai. Nimit was up from Koh Chang. Jim accepted the position of "Vice President & Special Tools" for the new EAA Chapter in Thailand. Thanks again Mike and Boz and all the aviators who flew in. NEWS FLASH -- Mike has produced and outstanding YouTube account of the trials and tribulations of Precision Flying Event Aviators operating on the edge... Well done Mike.

05-12 DEC 2014 -- WORAWOOT FLOATILLA ON TFC WINTER TOUR -- This year, the trip was a great success. The highlight was the "Worawoot Floatilla" on the river passing through Mae Sariang. Our TFC intrepid aviators ventured north to Loei, Pai, Mae Hong Son, and all sorts of other places. Alongzo did an amazing job with his co-leader Rolf. Khun Suchard joined the expedition with chief co-pilot Khun Am. Harry was there. Others were in and out, and the weather was cool and perfect. The Itinerary was roughly as follows. 5 Dec Kanong Phra Breakfast and VTUU( stay in the city) -- 6 Dec VTUU-Sawan Den Din (posibility to fly the Mekong), in case Sawan Den Din not available thenVTUW -- 7 Dec Sawan Den Din VTUL (posibility to fly the Mekong) -- 8 Dec VTUL VTCN VTCT -- 9 Dec VTCT VTCI If they allow us to stay overnight, if not VTCH -- 10 Dec VTCH VTCS -- 11 Dec VTCS VTPT -- 12 Dec VTPT go home. We can also 0rganice some cultural activities like visit de a golden Triangle in Chiang Rai or the SALAWIN River in Mae Sariang etc. Let me know if you have any sugestion and who is interested to join so I can proceed to look for hotels. Finally we will have to change the night in Pai for Mae Hong Son. The reason is because the hotels in Pai they donít accept pre booking, they need full payment when making reservation and the prices will be too high if we wait to make reservation to the last moment. Pai is very high occupancy this period of the Year. This is not a big problem because we still can make an off stop in Pay and then continues to VTCH. The hotel selected in Mae Hong Son is the Imperial Tara, we stayed there last year, it is a very nice a comfortable hotel and the price is 1900 Bath per room including ABF. So I block 9 rooms for all the confirmed airplanes until now. If somebody else needs more rooms let Ms. Elle know. Here is the list of participants at the present moment: HS-RAM Rolf and Andrea, HS-AWS Tony and Bob, HS-JON Harry and Tom, HS-EQK Hanspeter,Rolf and Ricardo, HS-FER Fernando and Worawoot. There until now 4 airplanes more joining us for some portion of the trip: Mike, Alasdair, Eduardo, Giorgio. Please boys let us know about your plans ASAP. I suggest to have a have a briefing about the flight on Sunday 30 Nov in Bang Pra airfield about 4 p.m. . Let me know participation. Happy flights, Fernando

Congratulations. Thank you Fernando, Harry, Tony Scragg, and Kruu Jira for volunteering to take our student winners flying. It was a great day for our student friends.

SEP 2014 -- HI-TECH WEATHER REPORTING FOR SMALL AIRPORTS IN THAILAND -- Enthusiastic aviator Ed has informed us that now NOK airfield and PHUKET AIRPARK have live WEATHERLINK updates online and ready to view immediately.

Have a look and get as many other airfields to set this system up too.


27 SEP 2014 -- ARAI SAN BACK AT THAI FLYING CLUB -- It was a very busy weekend at TFC. Marek came all the way from Vietnam to do some flying, and he brought his amazing video helicopter to display to all the members and hover spectacular images of the clubhouse and planes and horses as we watched the sun set. Araisan was back after many years. He is one of our most enthusiastic Japanese members, and Khun Charoen and he took the Robin for a flight over Koh Samet and back. Dr. Choladhis was back flying and riding and presenting many new TFC models complete with Hermes hand bags. The Damri Squadron was in full force flying the Grumman. We also celebrated with Kruu Jira (whose son just became a RTAF General). Kruu Jira is our great and long-standing TFC insturctor.

24 AUG 2014 -- DR. PISIT MAKES SECOND FIRST SOLO -- Khun Mau did it... His second First Solo. So we congratulated him again. Khun Mau lives in Phuket, but he loves to fly at TFC. He is getting ready to take his DCA test ride and he has been converting onto the C172. Contratulations Khun Mau.

28 JUN 2014 -- MECHANIC NUM CONFIDENT -- Khun Num is very confident about the TFC Fleet. Currently, 4 aircraft are grounded for various reasons, but Khun Num says in NOV 2014 (in 5 months) he is sure that 3 of the aircraft will be back in the air. The 172 is already back in the air with some slight radio problems. Rest assured, the TFC staff are working hard.

24 AUG 2014 -- NEW GARDEN AND LIGHTS AT TFC -- The TFC Staff has been working hard to clean up the clubhouse. 15 trees removed. A lush garden of tropical flowers has been arranged around the clubhouse entrance. New electrics and a new fan. The most important improvement is the TFC TUI PARTY LIGHTS installed. Now, at the throw of a switch, an instant "TFC TUI PARTY" can be assembled. If you want to sponsor a party at the flying club and try out the new lights -- EMAIL TUI -- Thailand's first Bush Pilot and one of the founders of "Oshtak", Khun Mau Choladhis, came by to inspect all the work on the clubhouse with his son James. He was very pleased with the progress. Khun Mau is an experienced equestrian, so he did not miss the chance to jump on one of Chan Tui's Thai Horses that are grazing around the clubhouse. He brought his riding helmet too, so no one can say that Doc is not always prepared. It was Doc's dream many years ago to have horses at the flying club, so after flying, members could jump on a horse and go for a ride.

The Bushpilot Clubhouse
TFC Articles of Association


The Thai Flying Club offers PPL (private pilot) flying courses with a FREE GROUNDSCHOOL. To date, the club has trained and certified many Thai and Foreign students. The club can also help you apply to validate your foreign pilots license for flying in Thailand. The flying course is 60 flight hours and the total cost of learning to fly is about 400,000 Baht. To obtain your Thai PPL, you must 1. CKrittika Toumtongomplete an aviation medical examination (one day in Bangkok Hospital), 2. Join the club (10,000 Baht), 3. Submit an application for SPL (200 Baht), 4. Study in the TFC FREE Groundschool (to receive a letter from TFC), 5. Log 60 hours of flight time, and then you can sit the DCA written exams (given once every 3 months) and take a DCA checkride. The ground school in Bang Phra is FREE for everyone, and you can join anytime you want. The DCA has to do a background check on SPL applicants, so it can take 2-3 months to receive your SPL. Start the process early and begin your groundschool studies, so that your SPL will be ready when you are ready to fly. CONGRATULATIONS to Thailand for this great improvement (it used to take 7 months for foreigners to obtain a SPL). Students can only begin to log hours in their logbook after they have received their SPL. If you think you want to learn to fly, then begin this process immediately, so that you can start flying as soon as your SPL is ready. The club charges an hourly rental rate for the airplane (rates vary with type of plane) and the club charges an hourly fee for instructors (see plane and instructor rates). A prospective student may solo with consent of the instructor (usually after 12-20 hours, depending on frequency of flying) after he has his SPL.
