The Jamboree is providing the opportunity for Scouts to experience one of two extra cost activities while at Tailem Bend! Scouts can choose either a 20 minute glider flight, or a few laps around the race track in a real race car!

Applications for these extra experiences open on 15 June 2018 and are expected to fill fast.


The JAMBO-AIR team at AJ2019 is offering flights in 2-seater (side-by-side) motorised gliders.  Our pilot will handle the take-off and landing, but during the flight you will have the opportunity to take over the controls of the aircraft, and fly it yourself! The pilot will provide instruction on controlling the aircraft during the 20-minute flight.

We encourage you to have a go at this, but if you decide that you don’t like it, our pilots are always more than happy to fly. With the airfield on-site, you will have the opportunity to see the Jamboree site, and surroundings, from the air.

Restrictions and requirements:

  • maximum weight is 90 kg
  • accessibility is limited
  • a Gliding Federation of Australia “9 Day Introductory Membership Application” form that must be completed and signed by a parent or Guardian.

Cost: $120 each

Full Throttle

Join us at The Bend during the Jamboree to get on track as a passenger with our team of highly experienced drivers.

All the drivers are CAMS licenced and many have championship trophies to prove how quick they are.

So… Helmet on, Harness in, ready? GO – let’s see if we can catch that car in front in this 15 minute on track experience.

Restrictions and requirements:

  • We cannot provide rides to anyone who cannot get into or out of the car by their own efforts. While this would normally be related to those in wheelchairs, it may also relate to anyone with a mobility disability, broken arm, leg etc.
  • There are no height/weight restrictions.
  • Participants must be aged 12 or over at time of ride.
  • All passengers must complete a CAMS medical declaration.

Additional applications and disclaimers will be sent to participants that have been accepted to attend AJ2019. Participation in the Full Throttle activity is subject to vetting against the CAMS requirements.

Cost: $50 each
