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.
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 name||Length (ft)||Surface|
- 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!
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
