I'm thinking of visiting Bradfield airstrip, near Atkinsons Dam QLD.

 

Does anyone have any current information such as PPR contact/Condition/Other?

 

Cheers.

Hi Jim

 

Saw this thread and thought I would check out the strip on Google maps as I am not too far away. There appears to be 3 strips in close proximity near Atkinsons Dam, which one is Bradfield? My guess would be the northern most strip which appears to have one good grass strip. Can you get a coffee there during the week?

Hi Steve , as you can see from Mark Kyles circuit of Bradfield , it is the widest grass strip in the area.

 

It is one mile due west of the western tip of Atkinson dam and has the runway north/ south.

 

Easy to pick as all the fence lines in the area are north/south and east/ west.

 

Someone is usually there most weekends , either Bob or Arthur and Kev or myself are flying circuits or in the training area, so a coffee or tea is always on hand for visitors.

 

Maybe we will see you there...... look forward to it.

 

Cheers
