Cheers for that input @LysanderV8 . I am always happy to take on board the wisdom of somebody with a little more insight than I .

[That's probably most of them here,, :D ]

But seriously , I am rather excited that a new phase could be about to begin for SHM . Despite being very critical of its recent past , I have a bit of a soft spot for the old place , as I was introduced to GA at Shoreham back in the early 1970s , when an old retired policeman took me up in a C.172 . I'm sure he rented it from Toon . I distinctly remember rwy 03/21 being grass back then . This same old boy had a funny little VW powered single seater in his garage . Which from the knowledge I have now , believe was probably a Tipsy Nipper . I'd love to know if it ever flew .

But re: the forthcoming fly-in . Let's pray for a good day weather-wise and that a new era for SHM is just around the corner .

..........Oh and @malcolmfrost :D . I have arrival slot #10 and I promise no 'Jumbo circuits' and will attempt to vacate expeditiously ... :D

With an aerial picture like that and a karting club called 'Bunbury City Kart Club' I had to see what Bunbury is all about.

Never heard of it (my bad) - but City?

I agree; the Australians have an optimistic view of what constitutes a city. However, Bunbury does have a cathedral (albeit a Carp one that is no bigger than a standard church) and, therefore, it gets the 'city' moniker.

All that having been said, a lovely (free) runway and unlimited airspace all around. They can call it whatever they want for that :D

PS: I used to live in West Sussex and fly a 182 from Shoreham. I liked the place and will go back there if they reduce the landing fee and I'm in the UK (just to get back to the original thread).

Or it's going A/G permanently and the instrument approach will be withdrawn.

In which context, why aren't the NDB/DME approaches in the EGKA AIP entry?
