What is GA Madness?
GA Madness focuses on the smaller side of aviation. It's designed to test a controller’s limits with high workload into small airports, with VFR and IFR aircraft. GA Madness focuses on class D airports and this time we’ll be focusing on Essendon, Avalon and Moorabbin.
Where can I fly?
These airports are some of the busiest airports in Australia, however, don't get enough TLC from our controllers. You are welcome to conduct circuts, local area flights or even instrument operations. You may also want to fly a scenic route over the CBD! For those who are looking for longer flights, you could travel across the Bass Strait or perhaps conduct a Jetgo flight to another airport. The choice is yours!
Bring plenty of fuel and some charts as our controllers assist you to navigate through one of the busiest TMA's in the country.
