COY Apron

The apron for YCOY is at the South Western end, there are 2 Cessna's that park up near the "bowser", there is a third (and maybe fourth) tie down directly behind them (old tyres and rope).

AVGAS is NOT available, closest available is YCAR roughly 100nm South (Self serve bowser, security controlled AP), call the guys at Ningaloo Reef Dive and talk to the Chief Pilot (currently Paul) for any info.

We flew in there in a 172 late March 2017, was a beautiful strip and an amazing approach, Enjoy!

Low flying plane for more than an hour this morning!

We live in myocum & most mornings we are woken to the noise of low flying planes. One in particular flies over & over for ages. Why can't they fly out to sea instead of flying over a residential area? Seems as they are a law unto themselves. Planes have been continuously flying low over our house for over an hour this morning!

Ingelara details

To The owners.

Can you please tell us the airfield height and whether you have circuit procedures etc? Also, another poster mentioned landing fees. Can you please tell us how much they are (as of April 2017)? We hope to be flying in around the 1-2 May 2017 in company with some other airplanes, mostly ultralights.

Looking forward to seeing you out there and your beautiful part of the country.

TIF @ YMPC

I did a TIF with another flying school here. Very nice VFR flying that can be done If you head northwest of the aerodrome. Circuits are also fun as you are commonly there with CT4As and sometimes PC9s as well.

Work has began to lengthened the current 9/27 runway from 1,830m to 2,200m & the surface is also going to be thickened to allow for heavier aircraft there is also talk about the airport having a tower installed due to increases traffic.

Nice place but expensive

Stayed overnight at Forrest with my Daughterand re-fuled. Great for a stopover or break. Airport manager and his wife were terrific, and the dinner was great, but it was the most expensive leg of my whole trip round Oz :(

Wrong spot!

The Omeo airstrip is to the SE of the township on the Great Alpine Road. Roughly 14/32. It's in the country airstrip guide.

Low flying plane for over 25 minutes today!

Who are the idiot joyriders plaguing us with continuous low swoops over our property and surrounding area of Myocum? ah, is this yet again the way our rights to peace and quiet are to be invaded by tourists and other jokers in planes? This plane was just above the gums on their lowest swoop.

This airfield used to be used by the Pakenham Commando Skydivers (commandoskydivers.com.au), who have since moved their operations to Tooradin. YTDN

The Pakenham airfield will never open again, considering all of the housing, factories and other things that are on it now.

ARRIVALS INFORMATION BOARD

Adelaide Biplanes comments.

(Reposted as my earlier post didn't include my name.)

I read the on this thread while researching flying schools before starting lessons some 3 months ago.

I drove to Murray Bridge, and to Parafield, and when I went for a look-see at Aldinga (after the comments below) I expected a frosty welcome, perhaps expensive food, and worse.

What I found instead is a warm family-run business, a guided walk over to the school's aircraft parked across the beautiful lawn area so I could see their quality and equipment, and nothing but respect and warmth.

Of the four schools I visited and spoke with (and I took the TIF with another school), Adelaide Biplanes was by far the most welcoming.

Not only that, their aircraft were the most professionally presented and newer. And also the best priced in the category I'm flying.

I am surprised at the slurs on this page from anonymous posters, and in my eyes that says more about them than the good folks at Adelaide Biplanes.

To anyone else reading this thread, don't accept the comments below as truth - go visit them yourself and make up your own mind.

GREAT LITTLE BUSH STRIP

I learnt to fly based at this strip and found the owner (Bob McIntyre) to be the nicest of blokes you will meet. Bob maintains the strip in an immaculate state and is keen to say gudday to all those that drop in.

The strip is set in amongst his sugarcane crops and is a very picturesque location so take your camera.

Go to Coldstream

The most UN friendly money grabbing airport ever, do yourself a favour and use Coldstream instead. All smiles and no mention of paying. GIVE LILYDALE A WIDE BERTH.

Should one dare?

Why would they "Dob you in"? are you doing something illegal? And how will they "Get you one way or the other"? I will reiterate that your comments are both uneducated and unsubstantiated. . . . How do they not have respect for locals? They have changed circuit patterns to suit, they are running a legal business that brings tourism to the area, and furthermore please state another country airfield that has an equivalent quiver of aircraft as diversified as ABP along with the training to go with it.

To say that radical locals do not want to close the airfield down is false. . . . . I have a feeling that the people venting on this site are in fact the locals that want it shut down. . . . I still have a copy of emails that were sent by Suzi whom she was instructed to apologise for inappropriate comments by the mayor of Onkaparinga.

For the readers and actual pilots of this site please realise that the majority of the negative comments I believe are made are not from actual pilots but from locals trying to shut down the airfield whom have an agenda, they have been both underhanded and dishonest hence they will not put a name to there comments.

Should one dare.

I note that a recent comment suggest that one should identify oneself on this Aldinga comments site.

Do so and say it as it is and you will have assertive action leveled against oneself by the operators.

They will either cancel a fuel card if one has one which is illegal.

Or

They will find reason to Dob you in.

But rest assured, they will get you one way or the other simply for telling as it is.

BOLLOCKS

By the Bollocks, they have brought about all these negative comments themselves.

Look at other airports and airfields and there are very few negative comments.

Where there is a lot of smoke, there certainly is a fire.
