With today's announcement (7 July) and in line with Victorian Government directions and advice the Melbourne Gliding Club will again need to cease flying operations for at least the next six (6) weeks.
Although the airfield is in an unaffected local government area (LGA), it is simply impractical for the Club to operate when so many of our members are from affected metropolitan Melbourne LGAs.
The intent of the current guidelines and advice is to avoid non-essential travel outside the home and to not travel from Melbourne to other areas. Therefore, the clubhouse and workshops are again closed from tomorrow night (8 July, 11.59pm). You should not travel to the aerodrome or be at the aerodrome. It is not essential. If you absolutely must go to the airfield for a critical need, you must seek prior permission from me. These arrangements are consistent across all three gliding clubs.
We urge you all to follow the current Victorian Government restrictions and advice in relation to social distancing and isolation.
We will be back flying as soon as we can safely do so.
