2024 Wyalkatchem Airstrip Fly-In Event

Pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and friends are invited to take part in the Wyalkatchem Fly-In
2024 on Saturday, July 13th.

Wyalkatchem previously hosted a fly-in and sausage sizzles in 2013 (23 aircraft) & 2016 (41 aircraft) with one planned for 2020 (Then COVID hit), both previous events were a great day out and gave the local community the opportunity to find out about aviation from local and visiting pilots. Wylie airstrip has also hosted 2 “Racewars” events and a couple of ultralight / gyro fly ins.

There is no formal flying program on the day; However, there will be a number of free
activities on offer once you arrive:

  • Free Breakfast for early arrivals (until 10am)
  • Free Sausage Sizzle for Lunch
  • Free Bus Transfers into Wyalkatchem
  • Guided tour of the Wylie CBH Museum (donation)
  • For those wanting to overnight it.
  • Farm Visit
  • No landing fees

The sealed, lighted, cross strips are the result of the commitment and a massive input of
voluntary work from the local community, the airport plays a crucial role in the Region with
Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft using the airfield and transfer station for day & night
mercy flights, (often, several times in a week) and several flying schools also use the field for
Nav exercises.
