Where is this all coming from?

I'm reading all the negative comments and can't understand where it is all coming from...

I've been doing my flight training at Lilydale for the past year and it has been nothing but a great experience! Best value for money training that I could find in the greater Melbourne area. They have friendly and proficient instructors and staff. No landing fees, short taxi ways and you don't have to wait ages for clearance.

I would highly recommend a visit!

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.

Runway Upgrade

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.

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.

(no subject)

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.

Good airfield in a small town

I am thinking of getting a plane to fly there

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.

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).

Position

Casterton 16/34 is red brown and obvious around a mile further West of the green marker on the map; WSW of the Town

Picture of

Status

Casterton is now a CFA Fire Bombing Base for Western Victoria with extensive facilities for continuous use during the Fire Season

At around 500ft ASL the main runway 16/34 rises significantly near the Northern (terminal) end and is nearly 4000ft of wide well groomed gravel - a very short grass cross strip would suit extreme crosswinds

The CTAF is 126.7 and beware the CFA operations will use other frequencies during a fire.

Lakes Entrance - flights to it

Do Charter flights operate in summer? Is Lakes Entrance a real airport for commercial flights of any sort or just for private planes?

Wineries

This is a great base to fly-in and visit area wineries. We had a great lunch once at Tahbilk, but there are lots of other cellar doors and restos around.

Hangarage at Romsey

Drove past it once

I would like to charter a plane to fly my wife and I from sydney to appollo bay for the weekend

Misleading use of another Airfields name

Whoever is managing the online presence of Romsey Airfield is deliberately misleading people by using Sunbury Airfield's name of "Penfield". The Penfield name comes from Alexander "Doc" Penny, who founded Penfield Airfield at 295 Settlement Road, Sunbury. You are also using Riddell Airfield's name, most likely without their permission. You are obviously doing this to gain more "Key Word" searches, so that people who are searching for Penfield or Riddell will be directed to your business, but what you are doing is illegal and false advertising. Please remove the false name from all your online listings immediately! Penfield Airfield Owner.

Penfield location

Penfield airfield is located at 295 Settlement Road Sunbury. Current google map has it a Romsey, this has been changed recently and was a mischievous act.

Penfield Airfield is the Airport for Sunbury Victoria 3429.

Penfield Airport is the Home to Penfield Flight School, Sunbury Paintball and Sunbury Stockfeed, the airport is owned by Vince and Wendy Goulthorpe and the CFI of Penfield Flight School is Terry Otway who is also the Airport Manager.

Contact number for the Airport Manager is 03 97404547

Penfield Airfield is 1150 feet above sea level and has two long grass runways, 18/36 1300 metres and 15/33 760 metres.

Penfield is 8km north of Sunbury and 35 minutes from the CBD via the Calder Highway.

I hope this information can be of some use to the moderator.

Planes too noisy over farms

Would whoever runs the pilot training at Romsey airport show some consideration for nearby farmers and reduce the number of take off and landings into or from the north. Some days the you can't hear a person speaking to you as planes fly so low over our farm. Given that to the south of the airport there are no residences, please take off and land from that direction. If the wind isn't suitable then don't fly for training. Thanks. Patrick Francis Moffitts Farm

Nice place to fly

A great place to fly, the only thing bad about this airport is the thermals from the forest to the east on runway 17/35

Picture of

Updated runway condition April 2014

This is a private runway now and permission must be obtained from the owner. The details are in the AOPA or country airstrip guide. I landed and took off from the east/west runway with ease in my RV7. There are rocks protruding from the surface, but is still fine for light aircraft. This is a narrow strip being marginally wider than my wheels.

The owner says the North/South strip may be too rocky to use and he prefers people to use the East/West as it is longer as well.

This is current as of April 2014.

Enjoy!

Hangarage

Hi all,

Came across this thread and trying to find some updated info. I have a Pitts and am wondering if there is any available hangarage in Bacchus Marsh? He doesn't take up much space!

Many thanks.

Good little airport

This airport is very close to both Penfield & Romsey. The main strip is ashphalt 02/20 10 metres wide. Landing on 20 there is a small rise in the strip about 75 meters from the beginning.

Great facilities

Beautiful new terminal with excellent cafe, toilets and plane parking. Mildura is a great spot for a weekend getaway all year round. Have been there a few times and will certainly be back.
