Felix Williamson is now our youngest Junior member, joining CMAC in December 2014.

He is currently building up his flying skills in preparation for the Bronze Wings test
(see MAAA Power Bronze Wings).

A more advanced CMAC Junior, Marius Baumgartner, has been Felix's principal instructor to date. On a frosty June morning, here is Felix at the sticks with CMAC President Terry G keeping a close eye on the flight and father Paul looking on.

Junior member Llewellyn Mitchell (AUS 82408) joined CMAC in October 2014 and has quickly progressed to flying his E-Flite Apprentice 15E safely and with confidence.
Photo at right shows Llew receiving instruction from CMAC CFI Gowrie Waterhouse. His immediate goal is to gain MAAA Bronze Wings accreditation, hopefully before Christmas this year.
Llew is in Year 7 at Telopea Park School, Barton and, when interviewed, expressed a strong interest in the rapidly-evolving amateur UAV field.
Bonne chance, Llew!

Pasquariello brothers Tony (blue top) age 8 and Daniel (yellow top) age 10 show off their Boomerang II. These cool-looking dudes are two of our newest junior members, first registering with CMAC in November 2012.
They're receiving R/C pilot training from Instructor Vito Maniaci, who is using a "buddy box" dual-control configuration while they work up to the first solo flights.

With its large size and flat-bottomed wing, the Seagull Boomerang has slow and stable flight characteristics, making it very popular with students.

At age 10, identical twins Jeffery and Duc Mai are two of CMAC's youngest members. Here they are at CMAC Field with the model they're learning to fly -- an E-Flite Apprentice 15E -- and their instructor Steve Grzeskowiak.

The Mai family came to Australia from Vietnam four years ago and the boys are now doing well in Year 4 at Turner Primary School. Proud Father, Mr Lam Mai, is a Civil Engineer specialising in bridge design and is currently engaged in a tender for the Majura Parkway road development project.
