Dear NSW Sport Aircraft Club member

 

Drone Operations Notice:

A cinematography drone will be operating tomorrow Tuesday 03 November over the Minerva Pool area not above 400ft AGL, mostly just after sunrise and before sunset. The operator is appropriately licenced, has been briefed on our operations, and will be giving way to any aircraft traffic. To assure separation, members are advised to maintain 1,900ft AMSL over Minerva Pool, and only commence descent when established on base leg for Rwy 17. Operations on Rwy 35 will not be affected.

 

Grass areas:

The grass strip and all other grass areas are temporarily out of bounds for any and all vehicles due to the recent wet weather. Please assist by staying off the grass!
