Bathurst Mt Panorama Heliport Access 2017

Postby Hangerbout » Tue Jan 10 2017, 02:08

Searching for information on access to land and park at Bathurst Circuit on Fri Feb 03 2017 for the LIQUI-MOLY BATHURST 12 HOUR practice day.
Can anyone let me know the operator running the area and landing/parking fees if known.
Have not seen as yet any NOTAM's out on airspace restrictions.
Cheers fellow slappers, thanks in advance for your help.

The notams won't usually come out until a week or two before the race. It will usually have the operator on the notam to contact.
And there is ample parking on the western side of pit straight where Skyfuel do the refuelling.

The normal spot for heli parking is on the rifle range (which is on the western side). Depending on who is running the meeting, it is either free or $100.00.

AeroRefuellers now have a jet fuel bowser at Bathurst too. Totally irrelevant to said topic, but handy to know :)

Craig,

There are many heli pilots that read this site. May I suggest that you publish the rules, cost and full contact details, so that your industry colleagues can understand the requirements - without having to contact you directly.

It will make life easier for all.

Cheers,
Arrrj
