Overview:

Pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and friends are invited to take part in the Wyalkatchem Fly-In 2016 on Saturday, April 23rd. 

Wyalkatchem previously hosted a fly-in and sausage sizzle in 2013 to celebrate the new runway openings, it was a great day out and gave the local community the opportunity to find out about aviation from local and visiting pilots.

There is no formal flying program on the day; However, there will be a number of free activities on offer once you arrive:

  • Free Breakfast for early arrivals (before 10am)
  • Free Sausage Sizzle for Lunch (11:30am to 1pm)
  • Free Entry to Wylies Swimming Pool
  • Free Bus Transfers into Wyalkatchem town
  • Free guided tour of the Wylie CBH Museum
  • No landing fees

The sealed, lighted, cross strips are the result of the commitment and a massive input of voluntary work from the local community, the airport plays a crucial role in the Region with Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft using the airfield and transfer station for day & night mercy flights, (often, several times in a week) and several flying schools also use the field  for Nav exercises.
