Welcome to the Aviator’s segment of the Avalon 2013  website!

We hope that you find it easy to use and that it contains all the information you require to make your visit to Avalon 2013 as pleasant as possible.

As in previous years, there are a number of changes being introduced for Avalon 2013. They are based on your feedback from previous events, new regulatory requirements, procedures and practices used at comparable events overseas and the increasing use of computer-based systems.

The Australian International Airshow is conducted at Avalon Airport (YMAV). For Avalon 2013 , Avalon Airport may be referred to as “Avalon Main” and will have one available runway, 18/36 a sealed runway 3048 metres in length.

Operational restrictions (and pre-registration requirements) apply at Avalon Main, access to which will be limited to participating (flying and static) display aircraft only.

To facilitate light aircraft visits, a supplementary VFR (day only) ALA (know as “Avalon East”) is located adjacent to the Avalon Airport and is operational from Tuesday 26 February to Sunday 3 March (during daylight hours).

Aircraft parking (ramp) space (hard-stand and grass) at Avalon Airport (referred to as “Avalon Main”) is restricted.

Consequently all participating aircraft for the event will have to pre-register. (Note that there is no registration requirement at Avalon East)

The first step in registration (for those yet to do so) is open the Registration segment. Complete the form and email to us. We will respond with a username and password (nothing complicated). With the username and password you will then be able to enter the “password-controlled” segments (such as participant profile and Air Display Regulations) you require – which vary depending on whether you are a:

  • flying display participant
  • static display participant
  • charter aircraft carrying Exhibition sponsored passengers (26-28 February only)

Avalon East is a day VFR ALA adjacent to Avalon Airport.

It will be open for use by light aircraft from Tuesday 26 February to Sunday 3 March.

Avalon East enables light aircraft to fly-in without being required to pre-register (which applies to operations at Avalon Main). Arrivals and departures are available anytime (during VFR daylight hours) at Avalon East during this period.

A free shuttle bus service to and from the nearby show entrance will be available on all days.

Airservices Australia will provide Air Traffic Management at Avalon 2013.

The procedures for Avalon 2013  have been designed to enhance overall safety and avoid unnecessary delays not withstanding the introduction of Class D airspace at Avalon.

The AIPSUP will be issued by Airservices Australia and will be available in the latter part of 2012 from this site.

Self-briefing on the AIPSUP pre-arrival will assist you and other aviators to avoid unnecessary delays.

As with any aviation endeavour, safety is imperative.

We request that you assist us to provide the optimum operating environment by ensuring you arrive with all relevant information and by appropriate pre-planning.

Have a great visit!
