For non-members, prior permission is required to use the airfield. This is to ensure that pilots have visited this page and understand our operational and fly-neighbourly requirements. Use for flying training by other organisations is not permitted and we limit access for very noisy aircraft. Our Landing Permission form is here.
An exception is made for police, fire, search and rescue, other emergency services and infrastructure-monitoring organisations when the need arises.
The clubhouse is locked when not in use however, toilet facilities remain accessible. YKTN is about 3 km from town, though there may be no taxi service available.
AVGAS is available 24/7 via a self-service bowser. Payment is via the iOR Aviation tag for account holders or via the free ‘FuelCharge’ App available for IOS and Android. There are no Credit Card or EFTPOS facilities available.
A visitor parking area is located on the grass to the South of the Aero Club building and to the West of the Run-up Bay and is clearly signed. The area to the North of the AVGAS bowser is reserved for Kyneton based aircraft. Parking fees may apply for extended stays. Full details of Airfield Access fees are available here
