We STRONGLY recommend that you NOT takeoff on Runway 14 unless you have suitable aircraft performance and weather. The runway slopes upward and the hill at the end of Runway 14 is 1000′ above and only 1500 meters away!

( Note the trees in the bottom right corner of the main airfield photo … this was taken from the GROUND, not the air! )


Straight in approaches are not recommended – overfly the airfield to check for aircraft/gliding activity and animals (kangaroos/cows) on the strip.


Glider winch cable rises up to 2000’ AGL – if gliding in progress, establish contact with Glider Base on 126.0 or overfly at 2000’AGL


Gliding winch cable may be lying on grass to eastern side of airstrip.

Grass RWY Strip may be too soft for landing, depending on preceding rainfall. Contact YMBT.


Note that model aircraft operate at the airfield. Even if other aircraft/gliders are not operating, you must make all usual radio calls so that modellers are aware of your intentions. They operate to a code of practice designed to avoid any interference with aircraft/glider operations. Please do not taxi across the model aircraft strip that is marked out in front of the terminal.
