Fly'n for Fun coming to Parkes in 2022
 
1 - 3 April 2022 in Parkes, NSW
 
RAAus and the AMDA Foundation are today announcing Fly’n for Fun, which is a fly-in style event taking place at Parkes from 1 to 3 April 2022. See the media release here https://members.raa.asn.au/.../final-media-release-21dec.pdf

Parkes is an ideal location and the Bureau of Meteorology tells us this is the best time of year for aviators to fly around the Central-West region of NSW. With two runways, ample parking for aircraft and no landing fees for aircraft up to 2000 kgs MTOW, Parkes is centrally located to allow those aviators attending to use it as a base whilst visiting a host of other aerodromes in the region over the weekend. We’ll have a large camping area set up with facilities, communal camp fires, a marquee for commercial displays and another for informative seminars whilst aircraft static displays will be set up on the apron. There will also be buses to enable visits to the Parkes Radio Telescope, visit the township or on the Saturday night, attend ‘Overture – Stars under the Stars’ which is an unrelated event taking place concurrently with Fly’n for Fun.
 
A dedicated website is in the process of being developed and we’ll have lots more information available early in the new year so you can start planning your trip. We hope to see you there!
