Lake Ginninderra Flying Site Approved by the MAAA as an BMAC Affiliated Flying Site

As an adjunct to our CASA approved Crace Grasslands Nature Reserve flying field, the club has also successfully negotiated to have MAAA approval of the Lake Ginninderra float plane site as a BMAC affiliated flying site.

The MAAA has determined the Lake Ginninderra flying site to be more than 3 nautical miles of Canberra airport and we had not requested to fly above 400 feet, therefore the float plane flying site did not need further regulatory approval.
