After the successful 2020 Tyabb Air Show that delighted aviation fans of all ages on Sunday, March 8, the Peninsula Aero Club proudly distributed nearly $60,000 it had raised through the event. It was presented to community groups via a virtual beneficiary event on Saturday, May 30, as part of PAC’s long tradition of giving back to the community. 

While the beneficiary day is usually celebrated with a fantastic community open day, this year with COVID-19 restrictions in place there was an online celebration via a group Zoom meeting. PAC president Jack Vevers was joined by Flinders federal Liberal MP Greg Hunt, South Eastern Metropolitan state Liberal MP Gordon Rich-Phillips, and two of the air show’s major sponsors who each had the honour of recognising the recipients of this year’s proceeds. 

Mr Vevers acknowledged the sponsorship from EastLink, IOR Aviation, Paul Bennet Air Shows, the work of PAC members and volunteers, and of course the aircraft owners, pilots and ground crews who donated their machines and time generously for no charge. HMAS Cerberus and Defence Australia were also acknowledged for their terrific participation and support. 

Mr Hunt presented $25,000 to Chasing Change, and $10,000 was presented to Tyabb CFA by Bryce Morland from IOR Aviation. Mr Morland pointed out the important community contribution the CFA had made throughout the recent devastating fire season.

Representing EastLink, Doug Spencer-Roy presented the Mt Eliza Lions Club with $8000, which came on top of $4500 that was collected from carparking on the day. The Tyabb football and cricket clubs were each presented with $3000 by Mr Rich-Phillips, adding to the more than $5000 the footy club raised through fundraising at the air show. Finally, the Australian Air League received $1000.  

The PAC has raised more than $150,000 from its past three air shows, and half the organisations that have benefited from this money work with people from the Mornington Peninsula who deal with health adversity.
