  1. Briefing Preamble

The Sport Aircraft Association of Australia (SAAA) – Western Chapters has approval for a Fly-in with Air Display at Langley Park on the banks of the Swan River in Western Australia.

The Fly-in and Display will be carried out using SAAA Guidelines for an SAAA Fly-in Event and the appropriate CAO’s and CAR’s as guide to procedure. Copies are available on the SAAA website.

These briefing notes are not meant to intimidate any pilot.

Fly the route/s on Google Earth and it all makes sense. This step is essential so that the flights in and out are second nature and an enjoyable experience.

  1. Airfield Location


Langley Park – Perth

31o 57’ 41.21” S     115o 52’ 08.15” E

Runway Directions 11/29

Width 20 m


The proposed strip would be similar in location and specification to that used by the Red Bull crew.

i.e. Length 595m with displaced thresholds. The strip will be marked with white paint.

Note the soft area on the under-shoot at the Eastern end.

  1. Air Space An AIP Supplement and NOTAM will be issued by CASA.

To facilitate air activities and associated air support a Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) will be established within the Perth Control Zone for airspace over Perth Central City, Perth Water and west along the Swan River

Max height – 1500 ft

Clearance for Displays above 1500 ft will be either by;

  • Application for Airways Clearance by normal means – or
  • Perth Control will raise the TRA upper limit for short periods and will notify Langley
  • Unicom of that temporary change.


Langley will operate an advisory Unicom on 120.85 MHz

Refer attached Appendix #3 DRAFT Changes to Airspace and Perth ATS Procedures & Airspace Diagram

Airservices Australia will be at the PILOT BRIEFING to talk through the airspace changes and Procedures

  1. Radio Procedure

Monitor normal frequencies until inside the TRA then monitor Unicom on 120.85 MHz

Radio silence should be maintained.

The Unicom is advisory only and cannot direct traffic. We can refuse entry into the airspace.


It is a requirement of the CASA Approval that;

All display pilots, display aircraft ferry pilots, of Sport Aircraft Association Australia approved aircraft are to be conversant with standard Emergency and Loss of Radio procedures contained in the Enroute Supplement Australia (ERSA).

  1. YSEN to Langley

Aircraft will depart YSEN in the numbering order given. 1 to 100

Aircraft will depart in one (1) minute intervals – fastest aircraft first.

Each aircraft has been allocated an IAS – please fly that speed to maintain separation.

We do not want multiple aircraft in the circuit at Langley with the resultant circuit extensions over built-up areas or trying to slowup to the point of dangerously low speeds.

Depart YSEN and climb to 1500 ft at best rate of climb & set nominated IAS & fly to Rockingham.

DO NOT try to catch or overtake the preceding aircraft.

No transponder is required – set to 1200 STANDBY Fly up the coast via Fremantle to the Cottesloe Golf Club. Observe normal coastal route procedures.

Depart coast at the Cottesloe Golf Club & maintain 1500 over the river maintaining designated IAS speed and proceed as per Route shown.

Arrive at Western End of Narrows Bridge at 1500 ft and slow immediately to 120 kts for faster aircraft and 90 kts for aircraft with cruise < 130 kts

Aircraft that cannot achieve 90 kts will be last to arrive and will use normal arrival and approach Speeds

You get one missed approach – and if another occurs you are out. Refer to Item 22 & 23 for departure route in this circumstance.

  1. Circuit Traffic – General
  1. No traffic may fly over the Central City area, Causeway or Perth Zoo
  2. All downwind traffic on 11 or 29 shall be over the water as per diagrams
  3. All arrivals are to be high Short Field landings. NO dragging in over the trees.
  4. All departures are Short Field maximum performance takeoffs for maximum altitude over the trees.
  5. There is a soft patch in the eastern end undershoot. Do not land on it. (See Drawing)
  6. Depending on the surface conditions the Marshalls may direct using the undershoots for departures.
  7. CASA has granted dispensation to;

“—-under sub paragraph 166 (e)(i) of the Civil Aviation Regulations, permit the owners and operators of aircraft participating in the air display and fly in referred to at sub paragraph (a) above and listed in the program of events at Schedule 1 to make turns after takeoff and before landing to the right when operating at Langley Park Perth.—“

Email from Tony White


Ralph was the key organiser of sponsorships – and donation of services for the event.   Contact Ralph if you want to know more.

Andy was “event co-ordination” and did all the risk management paperwork, and took overall responsibility for the event.

I was the “air boss ” controlling the arrival and departure at Langley, and the Air show. I was the CASA liaison to get permit.

Col Morrow was responsible for approving aircraft to attend.  This required a demonstration of the pilot’s skill to land /take-off within the required distance.

(Done at Serpentine in advance of event)

SABC hosted all attendees as the starting point, in grid position take-off order.

All attending aircraft had to be in their respective grid position by Friday before the event.  SABC members controlled departure from Serpentine.

Chapter 24 of the SAAA organisation members provided all the on-ground logistical support.

  • Unicom
  • Windsock
  • Crowd control
  • Aircraft marshalling / parking / Taxi 
  • Emergency a/c maintenance

SAAA is the national body that represents the manufacture of these type of aircraft under the amateurs Built Experimental rules.

Aircraft cruise speed was used to place all aircraft into the starting grid.

This involved block speeds.

  • Fastest first  +150kts
  • Next fastest.   125-150kts
  • 100-125kts
  • Slowest


The concept was to ensure that aircraft did not bunch up on arrival at Langley.

This also created a longer spectacle of continuously arriving planes.


As organisers the first 3 aircraft into Langley were

  1.   RV8a. OTG.   Andy George.       Had to open the Langley airspace on route.
  2.   RV8a. VSW.  Tony White.          Had to man the Unicom for weather etc
  3.   Glasair THK.  Ralph Lerch.         Sponsors rep / admin




Thanks Tony, Neville

The Grove Family flew in from Townsville


Daryl and Jane Grove flew their Stoddard-Hamilton GlaStar, VH-SGC from Townsville for the event.

It is a home built, which they built in Townsville. It took 2.5 years to build.

It has a fibreglass fuselage supported by a chrome – moly cage, and all the flying surfaces are aluminium.

It has a Lycoming O-320 160hp engine with a Hartzell CS prop and cruises at 135kts.

Our trip to Perth in 2011, was a 4-day journey, departing from home (Townsville) – Longreach – Birdsville – Lake Eyre – Williamstown – Coober Pedy – Forrest – Kalgoorlie – Serpentine.

After the fly-in to Langley Park, Perth, we flew Bunbury – Margaret River – Albany – Esperance – Ceduna – Broken Hill – Thargomindah – Longreach – Townsville.

“STOL” is an acronym for a short take takeoff and landing.

In accordance with the Langley selection and operating criteria all aircraft and pilots were required to demonstrate a take off and landing on the grass strip (runway)? at Serpentine.

The Performance Criteria required a take off to achieve a height of 46 metres with a ground run and climb distance of 700 metres.

The ‘Jigger’ is an electronic angle and distance measuring instrument. The operator sights the aircraft on take off to check the performance.

Some needed to make adjustments to the aircraft weight and take off procedure to achieve the required safety margin, but all entries passed the scrutineering and flew to Langley Park.
