Andrew,

 

Can't help you myself as I have 5 aircraft in a 22 x 15m hangar already. Albany Regional Airport is pretty crowded for hangar space because of the landlords' inadequate planning and surveying of sites - plenty of space, just no will to make anything happen! The closest private strip is 28kms NW - probably not what you need. I'll keep an ear to the ground about temoporary space, but to my knowledge, there are around 8 other owners seeking full time hangarage.

 

btw, YABA is a full security RPT airport, (127.85), with AWIS on (122.125), and you definitely will need ASICs unless you have someone with an ASIC to escort you while airside.

 

happy days,

Hi Poteroo,

 

I do have an ASIC.

 

Sorry to hear the news and that's a real shame, seems like a disappointing situation for the aviation community in Albany.

 

Thanks for letting me know, I don't think i'll bother going there now.

 

cheers

Sorry we can't help hangar wise. however, there is a section of very well protected grass located between hangars, (on all 4 sides), which could be used for small aircraft to park and be relatively safe from our often strong winds.

 

Like many local government 'owners' of airports - ours has had grandiose ideas of Antarctic flights, International direct flights, and large International Training Colleges. None have eventuated. They have spent millions to maintain an ILS, to upgrade runways to F100 standard, and on a new full security terminal. Virgin Australia still operates old F50s into here, and has recently cut weekly flights from 20 down to 12. A more realistic reaction to declining demand I'd say. A very disappointing outcome for so much money spent - but that's what happens when you have State government preventing open competition on the RPT route. happy days,

100km road distance.

That is the problem with metrics it doubles the distance. Same thing happened with decimal currency, it doubled the price of everything. Daylight saving faded the curtains as well.

Poteroo,

 

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll keep this in mind as a backup option - shame about the whole situation there. Albany would be a pretty place to visit.

 

cheers,

 

Andrew

does anyone have a contact for the Aero Club at Denmark? I was planning to fly in on a weekend in my Gyro, could someone be able to assist me with obtaining fuel and a hangar spot for one night?

 

thanks in advance
