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.

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

NOTE:

Don't confuse Romsey with Riddell/Penfield. This is why you are finding difficulty. There are about a dozen landing areas in close proximity.

Correct: Romsey YRSY

The photo is correct as are some of the comments. I was flying my RV8 for the first time on delivery from Parafield and it is true that the data in my EFIS was off in Port Phillip Bay. I have my RV8 hangared at Romsey. TO orientate yourself be sure to identify the Defence Vehicle Proving grounds. It is north and adjacent. Coordinates are: S37 23 30.00 and E144 44 18.00. Frequency: 126.7 Elev: 1500

Reply to @david: Yeah, I made some sort of paste error when I saw the subdivision.

Reply to @ptomblin: that's the same location I found in the Australian AIP (you just have to make the latitude negative).

Reply to @david: My Eurocontrol data gives the lat/long as 37.391667 | 144.738333, but I don't see anything there except a subdivision.

re: THIS IS NOT ROMSEY

Found YRSY in the Australian AIP and corrected to the latitude/longitude listed there.

re: THIS IS NOT ROMSEY

Thanks. Online databases seem to have a tough time with this airport. The first one I consulted (as well as Google Maps) put it in the middle of the ocean. A different source I found gave this location, which at least actually has an airport shown. So

1. Does anyone know the correct lat/lon for Romsey?

2. Does anyone know what airport is shown here? YPEF?

THIS IS NOT ROMSEY

ROMSEY *YRSY is not this airfield. Romsey is about 8 km further north,zoom in north of Monegeeta for the real ROMSEY.
