Canberra Airport Landing and Parking Charges

Does anyone know where you can find what these charges are? Or anyone have accurate and up to date info close at hand?

Yes all you wise a$$es ….check your ERSA before you hit reply, and just for the extra wasting of your time why not search on Welcome to Canberra Airport

Or you can try phoning them…..of course that number would be on their website so after searching and searching ….its now after 4.30pm or 5.30 down there and they are GONE!

After seeing some really dumb organisational stuff with the stupid Toll Road mob in Sydney, anything else is probably quite reasonable .

Thanks

They are going to belt you from what I have heard. Landing and Parking fees. Gouldburn out of the question?

Canberra Airport Landing and Parking Charges

If you have to ask – you can’t afford to go there!

Ha! Ha! Now this is kinda funny Jaba. Your gonna go from the crappiest aerodrome in Oz to the least GA friendly aerodrome in Oz.

Dr

PS: A word from the wise – make sure that you have enough fuel on board to go somewhere else. Canberra also has the most unreliable Avgas availability in Oz.

Oh, and if they put you on 12/30 don’t panic – it is there somewhere. Just a bit hard to see among the highrise buildings that line the runway!

Thanks…and that is why I am asking the question, but Goulburn has bugger all in the way of hire cars and the Avis Agent is not open on Sunday when I want to return, mind you a phone call may fix that.

If its under $20-25 a day its worth it….well not worth it, but its a better deal than going out of town.

Hey Forkie, you have been there lately…..what was the story?

Hi, I went there a couple of months ago for a few hours and i think it cost me something like 28,29 $ for a 182. Easy to get in to.

I don’t have my AvData bills at hand, but the costs +/- $1 are:

– $25 a night if you park on the tarmac

– $18 a night if you park on the grass.

Clinton…Thank you sir!

Where do you park your machine? I assume your beloved bo is tucked away in a warm corner of a hangar!

You can afford it Jaba, it’s just an oversized CTAF. $20-$30 as stated. Not that bad for the convenience of it. Your Dynon should light up when you get near their ILS.

Visited CB in June. Landing fee $24.62. IFR charges with Airservices $18.73. Didn’t stay, just refuelled. The self serve bowser sometimes won’t work so if you need to get the fuel truck to refuel you may have a wait on your hands as they give the big boys priority. Have parked on the grass on prior occasions with no problems. Make sure you have your ASIC displayed in all it’s glory.
