First Flight Info

It is a good idea to PRINT THIS PAGE and bring it with you on the day of your flight.

What to Bring – You will need to bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses and a floppy hat or cap that you can wear a headset over. You may be out in the sun for an hour or more so long sleeved lightweight shirts are recommended. Be sure to bring your camera also!

Camden is less than 1 hour’s drive from both the Sydney CBD and from Wollongong.

Directions – The entrance to Camden Airport is off Macquarie Grove Rd Camden, just 1.5 km from Camden township. The entrance is clearly signposted.
-Continue along the airport entrance road over several speed humps until after the last speed hump near the first hangars.  Here you will see a ‘Gliders’ sign.
-From here you stay to the left at all times and keep following the perimeter road for about a kilometre. Go all the way around the grass runways to the south western side of the field. Do not stop if you see any gliders parked on the runways. Keep driving until the road runs out and you can not go any further.
-Near the end of the road are two large hangars and then next is our small hangar. Park in the car park at the end of the road.

Please wait for your instructor to meet you in the car park. The grassed areas around the hangars are active taxiways so you must be escorted by the instructor to our hangar or aircraft. Our contact number is 0439 353966

If you come to any locked gates, please wait at that gate. Toilet facilities are located adjacent the last speed hump that you drove over on the airport entrance road.

This is our meeting place – Please meet our instructor here.

“Brendon had an awesome time. He thought the length of the flight was perfect and enjoyed the fact that he got to choose the flying route. He’s already talking about the next time he goes up and where he’ll go!  We would highly recommend it to our friends and family.”  Merilyn
