Our Flying Field
Our field is known as the Crace Grasslands Flying Field and describes both the location and the environmental aspects of the site. Our field encapsulates why Canberra is known as the Bush Capital. Looking straight out from the flight line the pilot is confronted by 200 acres of undulating hills cloaked in native grasses while in the distance the landing strip is bisected by a view of Black Mountain Nature Reserve and the spectacular Telstra tower. Looking left from the flight line is the attractive Crace Hill with its trigonometric station, which marks the eastern approach to runway.
The club’s Crace Grasslands Flying Field is authorized by CASA Instrument # RPAS-2017-9869 for:
- the operation of model aircraft up to 400 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) , and
- the use of the BMAC field to conduct model flying displays.T
We have a well appointed clubhouse with library, BBQ and a sheltered veranda that keeps our members and visitors comfortable year round as they observe the proceedings in the pits and on the flight line.
