IFATC at home - Melbourne Moorabbin (YMMB) [CLOSED]

Melbourne Moorabbin Airport
Hello everyone! It’s time for another round of IFATC at home, and this time I have decided to go off the beaten track and open an alternative airport, rather than just opening the Melbourne Tullamarine airport we all know and love.
YMMB has been recently edited by @Josh, so I only thought it was fitting that I should open it for this week’s IFATC at home.


Airport Information:

Moorabbin Airport (IATA: MBW, ICAO: YMMB) is a general aviation airport located in between the southern Melbourne suburbs of Heatherton, Cheltenham, Dingley Village and Mentone. The airport grounds are treated as their own suburb, and share the postcode 3194 with the neighboring suburb of Mentone. With a total of 274,082 aircraft movements, Moorabbin Airport was the second busiest airport in Australia for the calendar year 2011.

Runway Info:

Runway name Length (ft) Surface
04/22 1,873 Asphalt
13L/31R 3,478 Asphalt
13R/31L 3,773 Asphalt
17L/35R 4,068 Asphalt
17R/35L 4,380 Asphalt

Session Info:

  • Session 1: 0600Z-0800Z
  • Session 2: 1000Z-1300Z

I will be using one of the two pairs of parallel runways for Arrivals/Departures. I will be accepting any aircraft (Excluding military) up to and including the Cessna Citation X. Some suggested GA routes include:

A short hop around the bay area to some of Melbourne’s most used flight training airports

Fly the milkrun, but GA style!

YMMB-YWBL (vfr)/Any
An amazing VFR flight flying along the magnificent shipwreck coast!

Or just come down and fly patterns, whatever suites you :) Any charts required can be found at this website.

Thanks for reading my thread, I hope to see you down there :D

Glad to see my local airport getting some attention - it truly is a great airport to fly to. I’ll be on Melbourne Approach at region change so I’ll look forward to seeing some of you down here :)


Love the thread! I won’t be able to attend personally, but I hope you get some traffic!

NOTAM: Having issues with loading in, might be a bit to try and resolve these issues.
Edit: Unable to resolve these issues so far, may have to open later.

Unfortunately YMMB is an airport that currently can’t be opened due to lack of procedures causing the app to crash when trying to open it.

Known issue that we’re working on.

Sorry about the inconvenience!


Thanks Seb. Bugger this is the case but better to know now instead of spending hours trying to fix it. Apologies to everyone who was going to come down. Maybe after 20.2 or a hotfix, who knows :)
