Captain Posted November 28, 2008 Share Posted November 28, 2008 Those of you who are considering flying into the Avalon Airshow in March will have had a look at the new regs for RAA aircraft .... as on the Airshow website. My particular concern was with missing slots on the way in or out due to weather, or being stuck there at the end for the same reason, or for those of us why are flying a long way and need to sneak in late-ish in the day. I have been talking with the organisers and they have advised the following reply which I thought might be of interest to some forum members. Mick has suggested that if any of you have any questions, feel free to give him a call or an email. He is a pleasure to deal with. Hope you find this of use. Regards Geoff Geoff, Sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. Regarding the new restrictions - it’s not quite as bad as it seems. Whilst CASA require us to provide details of all non-VH registered aircraft, for authorising operation in controlled airspace, it really doesn’t matter if you cannot make your designated ‘slot’ time. If delayed, just let us know by e-mail or phone and we will re-schedule you at a time to suit both parties. Having looked at a picture of your rather ‘sexy’ aircraft type (and having been with us in 2005), could you advise us what assistance you had/require from us to transit from your landing position to the static park; e.g. wing walkers etc. I can then put the information on your file once fully registered. Once again, if I can be of any further help please don’t hesitate to call.
