Fly-in resorts, and accommodation.


Recommended Posts

I drew up this Google map to show airstrips within 1 km of pubs and food.

 

A few fly-in resorts and accommodation have sneaked in, but they're not really the same. There seems to be a demand for a map of such accommodation, and I know there are quite a few fliers travelling around these days who have found excellent places. Someone should start such a map, but I'm not interested cause I'm a dedicated camper and never use such accommodation. It's really easy with Google Maps, and once started, the list will build quickly from suggestions of those who have found suitable places.

 

Anyone interested in doing it???

I would happily do itThanks, Sean

Excellent, please do it! To start just pull those sort of resorts and accommodation from my map. Then put a request on here for suggestions that other flyers have found to be good value, and I reckon you'll get a flood of useful info. If you need any help to set it up just ask, not that I know very much about such work.

 

Seems to me there's a need for a separate list on this Rec Flying forum specifically aimed at sharing info for travelling around. I know so many real fliers who are headed off this year for the Centre and the Kimberleys and right around OZ. There's lots of experience out there that could be very useful for those planning such trips. It could have both maps right there handy, and an invitation for others to contribute what they've found. Sure would make much more interesting reading than political sniping and other such crap.....

Thanks for the replys guys,Starting it now, Anything you want to add just pm me.

Thanks,

 

Sean

John Bridges sent me these:

 

· YFSA Forsayth. Airstrip for Cobbold Gorge. It is 40 kilometres away, but they will send a bus to pick you up. Accommodation is good, transfer costs $25 return pp. No fuel.

 

· An addition to YCHT Charters Towers. Marvin from the Park Motel will pick you up from the airport, lend you his ute and generally look after you rather well. Accommodation is inexpensive, meals are very good.

Hi, thank you very very much for taking on this task! This is awesome! in response to the request for what to add: For planning purposes, it would be very helpful to know whether there is car fuel, MoGas available. And how. Eg, a 5 min walk with a Jerry can? A bowser on the ala? 2 miles to town, but taxi service available? Etc.

 

Also, in line with JG3's preference: please include strips with camping potential. camp sites (official?/inofficial? facilities?) again, thank you all very much!!

Maybe Members that live near these strips could help out with a roster or phone number that could help out with fuel for other members that need fuel if to far from town. Sort of a list to call as well if stuck or pre arrange.

Camden Haven - between Port Macquarie and Taree, NSW - is a great place to stay (cabins and/or camping on site).

 

The airfield is owned and operated by a group of pilot friends (mostly ATPs) who fly their beloved RVs.

 

A very friendly mob.
