Speaker – John Dickenson OAM BA psych

Light refreshments served from 5.30 pm. Talk commences at 6.00 pm

September 8 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the modern hang glider. The flexible winged hang glider was the brainchild of John Dickenson, providing an affordable means of personal flying for the first time, but it unfortunately became better known as the Rogallo wing. That first flight was made at Grafton, NSW by a local water ski champion Rod Fuller. Last year the Federation Aeronautique Internationale recognised John Dickenson for his invention and he was awarded the Gold Air Medal, one of aviation’s highest honours.

John Dickenson completed courses in electronics at Sydney Tech., radar and electronics with the RAAF during National Service. John mainly worked in industrial process control, technical sales and consultancy.
