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.

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 :(

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.

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.

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.

Picture of

Bollocks and Get some balls

Grow up and get some balls has it all wrong.

Adelaide Biplanes had absolutely no respect for the locals.

They came here Pommy Land, Bought the Flying school and within a short period of time where conducting flight activities at all hours and late on Saturday and Sundays with the constant droning of aircraft going round and round and sometimes low level circuits as well.

Anyone living in the vicinity stated getting jacked off.

But they never ever wanted to close the flying school nor the airfield down. That us absolute rubbish to state that.

At the end of the day it was simply and plainly Adelaide Biplanes who have been the root cause of a beautiful country airfield being EPA licensed. That transpired to be the only way to control these inconsiderate operators who have dobbed other aviators in to CASA rather than talk to the person that they, as self appointed industry police, perceived to be doing wrong.

And worse than that , they reported people from other airfields and venues which had absolutely nothing to do with them.

And to Mr Bollocks. The way you are ranting and raving leaves a lot to be desired in your ignorant outlook of the the facts.

As a Adelaide Biplane disciple, you would have blinkers on.

It only takes one to read the majority of comments to form an opinion that the operators at Aldinga have also no respect for Australian Aviators many of whom can fly rings around the bloke from Aldinga.

Remember that within the first year of him coming to Australia from Pommie Land, he stated that Australians have a bad flying culture and that HE was going to change it.

He has alright, which is why the pilots from Adelaide Biplanes are not overly welcome at any of the Flying Venues in South Australia. And that is a fact.

And the other thing which many have experienced, go there and do not put your hand in your pocket for fuel, coffee or cake, you will get the cold shoulder.

WTF IS WRONG WITH ALL YOU WHINGING C###s.

Martyn taught me to fly and the method and content has saved my life more than once . Ive seen commercial pilots trained elsewhere that couldnt land a 172 with no cross wind on a 2k bitumen strip. I havent seen him for approx 10 yrs for many reasons and am not a particularly big fan of his crew he has there ... so I dont go there simple ... I am not whinging about it on a public forum .so eat a D### those who will say Im part of ABP... FAR from it .

The bloke can pretty much fly anything Ive seen it!

Lets get to the Point rather than ######g around, all the critics, cynics, whinging di%$s tall poppy knockers , your accusing him of being a casa nazi and its evident why ....you cant fly for shit and your likely going to die or kill someone, hes probably seen it and asked if you would like a refresher or offered to help out and stop you from killing yourself.!! this upset your ###t pilot feelings and your ego starts writing cheques your body and ability CANT CASH! and the B######T begins .

He has skills that are worth learning , he owns a flight training school , Im guessing hes the CFI now ....and coincidentally ...... his son was killed in a aviation accident before the whole families eyes ! due to unskilled unsafe aviation ..SERIOUSLY....WTF do you think the Smiths attitude toward safety is going to be you Dumb ####s. If he was useless and talked ###t then fine ... but hes not so why dont you all grow a set and learn some new skills .

I am far from a amazing pilot but the instinctive core stuff like landing without gear down .......impossible!! I couldnt if i tried..... can all of the critics answer that one ??

Say what you want about this post and me ... IDGAF

I actually thought this site may have info like ...watch out for the South Easterly in late summer evenings . on late finals on 14 in summer keep a little more height over the fence as it always seems to sink.. you can get a taxi from??? you know stuff a pilot would say.... instead its all bollocks ...

Former site Pakenham airport, Australia

Well and truly closed. The former runway alignment lies under the path of Greendale Blvd, Arden Ave and Sandalwood drive and the houses on the southern side of these streets. It also extends under the Shanagolden village property. Sections of grasslands to on the northern side of the former runway have been preserved as green lands and are protected to some extent by the existence of native grasses (assumedly protected from grazing for many years by the existence of the former airport).
