Summer NOTAC

So far this summer has seen us dealing with very dry conditions and smoke haze.  The Yarra Valley has a unique micro-climate and when it's smokey elsewhere, sometimes we're clear, and visa-versa.  Don't trust weather cameras, they don't tell an accurate story.  Call us before you make any decisions about flying to YLIL, or having a lesson.

While we had some very welcome rain in mid January, things are pretty dry, please take care when taxi-ing to avoid any obvious dust patches and do your runups away from them if you can. If in doubt, talk to our desk staff or instructors, and especially when it's windy, point your aircraft into the wind for run ups and parking where possible.
