Easy flights if it's not raining

Flying from Port McQuarrie to Lord Howe Island for r&r/diving and encountered a large rain storm that came down in buckets. Had to circle for about an hour before tower advised it was okay to land. Still was certain we were going to skid off the end of the runway and into the ocean but we made it safe and the pilot shook everyones hand afterward (all 6 of us).

I believe this is a hobby strip, literally packed earth and it's on private land so no public access.

Basic but good

Didn't fly in or out of here as we drove in to visit friends in the area but went to the airport to pick up some cargo. Fun town with some great bars but the locals can get rowdy so be aware and leave quickly if you must.

1.2 million pax/year

Flown into Newcastle on a couple of occasions and like the set up, it handles over 1 million pax every year and everything always flows easily. Lost my sunnies once there but my fault I'm sure.

Love this airport every time

Been on international flights landing here on 6 occasions and domestic flights over 20 times in the past. Never had any issues with customs, finding information or connection times (when relevant). Easy to get around, customs is friendly and helpful and of course you are in Oz so things just feel better. Taxi lines can be crazy sometimes when hundreds of people get out at the same time but no major issues.

Glider Soaring

Bunyan Airfield is the home of the Canberra Gliding Club, which has operated from this site for more than 30 years. The site offers a range of lift types, including thermals, ridge soaring, mountain lee waves, and seabreeze convergence lift. The Australian altitude record for gliders (33,000 feet above sea level) was set during a flight from Bunyan Airfield in 1995 using mountain lee waves.

Amazing Airport

Flight was great. Got threaten by a terrorist but it was worth the experience. I would recommend Yass airport to anyone who truly wants a great aussie experience, even though I nearly died after hitting a cow but still it was great and there is only ten plane crashes a year. Definitely returning with my family, I definitely McLoved it!

The airport security was awesomely slack too, the staff all bogans and the plane took three turns to take off, but you know what? I McLoved every second of it.

Interesting Runway

Last visit there was a drainage ditch across about 100 m of the western threshold.

Otherwise, beware parachutists and when grass long and wet.

I MISSED MY FLIGHT :( very pooooooooooor services)

i was told from the travel agent there will be a bus....!!!

There was neither sign for the bus, nor for transits

i asked Virgin airlines lady/lazy!! told me to sit down there till i miss my flight.

spent a night and slept on the floor (the Virgin, NZ flight and Syd airport do not know have accommodation!!)

in the morning got air NZ check open given GATE 50!!! but later got the screen board GATE 56!! HUH...

i though i will miss again my flight but asked tens of virgins employees (dont trust one person) finally got it yet delayed our time 40min.

i wish if i could get refund or reward for missing flight and accommodation ...can anyone hear me

my opinion to get Victorian employees in Sydney airport or close that airport.

Refuelling at cobar

Didn't need fuel but on route from Walgett to Mildura I planned to top up ( always like more than enough in my tanks ), I called the refueller after we landed and he said there was an $85 call out fee, so I told him thanks but no thanks. We used the rest room ( filthy ) and got back in the plane only to see the refueller standing next to us right beside the pump, I opened the cockpit door and asked if there was still a call out fee seeing as he was here now. The reply without even looking up from his mobile phone was , yep ( and with attitude ). If this guy is working for himself I would not expect to see him there much longer, and if he is working for some one then an employment review must be imminent

General comment

Good facilities at the airport. Short walk to the town. RSL good place for a meal. Accomodation very average, but people friendly enough. Very daunting on first impressions as everything has security fencing and grills to avoid damage from some sections of the community.

Pulled in for a break on way back from Queensland and thought may as well get a bit of fuel while there. Fuel guy was just next to his truck and bowser so thought that was convenient, only to be told there was an $85.00 call out fee!! This guy is certainly doing wonders for the tourism industry in this town as I will be making sure I tell all my fellow flyers to avoid the place unless absolutely necessary.

Low flying planes

anyone who cares to check will find that 500 metres (1650 feet) approx is quite legal as the regulations state that minimum level above built up areas is 1500'.

Picture of

Low flying bi-plane

I am writing to council and ombudsman about the gold-coloured bi plane imposing over the township of Brunswick heads. today you are flying only about 500 metres above the market area fir the benefit of one or two people and terrorizing about 1000 market goers, tourists and voters all congregating in and around the Brunswick Heads township. It is illegal to fly so low and I will ensure you adhere to the rules and regulations.

Can't seem to find the strip. Is it still in existence? Just looks like a paddock!

Good evening. As a recent passenger arrival and a resident of Sydney, my wife and I were appalled that we could not ascertain/find directions to the shuttle bus to "Park & Pay" building on the periphery of the Airport. Your wandering attendants had no idea; NO signage. We were tired, it was late, and eventually found out that Park & pay are not allowed to erect signage. GREAT STUFF. How dumb is this. We found the bus boarding site - eventually, after walking from one end of airport to the other. How the hell are overseas strangers going to find their way around ??? Don't worry about them. They'll be gone soon !!!

Next - Sydney Airport is (or should) be the GATEWAY to Australia. What a miserable, boring looking place it is. Why? It's merely a commercial venture. NOTHING to make overseas or interstate visitors feel - this place is so beautiful. Weeds all over the place - not a flowering shrub/garden in sight. Have alook at Changi, Singapore etc. & others.

Smarten yourselves up and make this boring airport a bit more 'user' friendly, that we Australians can be proud of.

Or don't you care?? Too busy pocketing obscene salaries? Over to you.

re: Calga Airport

Can't see an airport in the satellite imagery, despite the ICAO listing for YCAA. Marking as "closed" until someone can confirm that it actually (still) exists.

Calga Airport

low flying aricraft

I am contacting the ombudsman regarding the small aircraft which is flying way too low and too often above my house. You guys know it is illegal so stop now before you get fined and told to stop.

re: Caution Advised

Any chance it will expand to an 18 "runway" course? Also, you forgot to mention frequent sandy depressions on each runway.

Picture of

Caution Advised

9 runways, no lighting or taxi ways. Projectiles, cars and people frequent runways.

No ATC, NDB or refuelling on site.

Single hole evident at each turning/run up bay, located at end of each runway - identified by flag.

No ASIC required for airside operations

Too complex for ERSA inclusion. Visual approach only at pilot's discretion

No parking allowed on grassed areas.
