Runway 12R/30L is open. Pilots should check the runway surface for pooled water prior to conducting operations.

Mains Power Outage 26.10.2018

Energex advise that there is to be an intended power outage from 08.00 to 15.00 hrs on Friday 26.10.2018.

This means that no water pumps will be working resulting in there being no toilet facilities, public or private, during that period unless individual sites can supply their own generated power.

Fuel will be unavailable during the power outage.

Frozen food in freezers will probably be OK if the freezers are left closed for the period but each person should make their own decision on this.

Watts For Breakfast??

09.09.2018

Well: It may be the better part of a year since the last breakfast at Watts, but judging by the excellent turnout this weekend, pilots and partners are always ready to go fly somewhere on a fine and sunny Sunday morning. It depends a bit upon who you listen too, but at a dead minimum there were 22 or perhaps more aircraft on the flight line and definitely 55+ breakfasts served up!

This was the first Watts For Breakfast to take advantage of all the work that has been done in the shelter shed by Mark Purdie and Peter Freeman, and what a difference it makes!! Purpose built facilities just make it so much easier and comfortable all round.

Watts For Breakfast is not intended to be a regular monthly event. Rather, it is held to fit around the activities of other airfield's fly-ins and breakfasts so that pilots, and and indeed all aviation enthusiasts, have the opportunity of having somewhere to got most all times of the year. The best bet is to keep a keen eye on the Watts Bridge Calendar and Facebook to find out about future breakfast fly-ins.

Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield is strongly committed to a "Fly Neighbourly" policy ensuring good working relationships with other land owners in the district.

Pilots are requested to download the Fly Neighbourly Chart to be aware of and avoid where operationally possible, noise and over-fly sensitive locations adjacent to the airfield.

Download the Fly Neighbourly Chart.

Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield requests that all members and visitors using the airfield's internal roads adhere to the signposted maximum Speed Limit of 20kph.

The Speed Limit maximises safety for all motorists and pedestrians, significantly reduces damage to the airfield's roadways and minimises the generation of dust which has an adverse affect on aircraft, buildings and human health.
