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.
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.
Last visit there was a drainage ditch across about 100 m of the western threshold.
Otherwise, beware parachutists and when grass long and wet.
