Take Off Towards Tomorrow!
Fly In to Avalon 2009!
As in previous years, there are a number of changes being introduced for
Airshow 2009. They are based on your feedback from previous events, new
regulatory requirements, procedures and practices used at comparable
events overseas and the increasing use of computer-based systems.
The Australian International Airshow is conducted at Avalon Airport
(YMAV). For Airshow 2009, Avalon Airport may be referred to as "Avalon
Main" and will have two available runways:
18L/36R - a sealed runway 3048 metres in length.
18R/36L, a parallel 1400 metre by 30 metre grass runway (primarily for
GA aircraft) and associated taxiways located 800 metres west of 18L/36R
(to facilitate simultaneous VFR arrivals and departures when 18C/36C is
Operational restrictions (and pre-registration requirements) apply at
Avalon Main, access to which will normally be limited to participating
(flying and static) display aircraft and larger (or high-performance)
To facilitate light aircraft visits, a supplementary VFR (day only) ALA
(know as "Avalon East") is located adjacent to the Avalon Airport and is
operational from Tuesday 10 March to Sunday 15 March (during daylight
Aircraft parking (ramp) space (hard-stand and grass) at Avalon Airport
(referred to as "Avalon Main") is restricted.
Consequently all those seeking to land/operate at Avalon Main during the
event will have to pre-register. (Note that there is no registration
requirement at Avalon East) Parking priority will be provided to those
participating in the various displays, rather than day visitors.
The first step in registration (for those yet to do so) is open the
Registration segment. Complete the form and email to us. We will respond
with a username and password (nothing complicated). With the username
and password you will then be able to enter the "password-controlled"
segments (such as participant profile and Air Display Regulations) you
require - which vary depending on whether you are a:
flying display participant
static display participant
a visitor to the Exposition and/or Airshow
AVALON EAST - EXTENDED OPERATION
Avalon East is a day VFR ALA adjacent to Avalon Airport.
It will be open for use by light aircraft from Tuesday 10 March to
Sunday 15 March.
Avalon East enables light aircraft to fly-in without being required to
pre-register (which applies to operations at Avalon Main). Arrivals and
departures are available anytime (during VFR daylight hours) at Avalon
East during this period.
A free shuttle bus service to and from the nearby show entrance will be
available on all days.
