Building Activity at the Airfield

It's been quite a while since there has been any major building activity on the airfield. However, over the last couple of months all that has changed with two major projects taking shape.

The Brisbane Valley Sport Aviation Club goes from strength to strength with an ambitious expansion of the club's meeting rooms. BVSAC President Wayne Petty, ably assisted by a small group of hard working volunteers, is now putting the finishing touches on the building's extension. This will allow the club to more fully contribute to events held on the airfield and offer additional space and facilities to club's expanding membership.

Meanwhile, in the chalet precinct, Jim and Viv Peters have engaged the services of the Watts Bridge builder of choice Kev Werner to erect their dream hangar and air chalet. Lots of steelwork, lots of concrete and lots of meticulous hard work. Already looking marvelous even at this early stage. Can't wait to see the finished building.

Queensland Government Equipment Grants

Behind the scenes there is a long list of new projects and endless ongoing maintenance required to keep the airfield looking neat and tidy. Having the appropriate equipment can make all the difference when it comes to getting the job done well. To assist "not for profit" community organisations such as Watts Bridge, there are a number of grants made through the Queensland Government Gambling Community Benefit Fund making funds available for the purchase of the much needed equipment.

Watts Bridge BoM regularly submits applications for these grants and over the years has had a fair degree of success. Recent acquisitions made under the grants scheme include an hydraulic post hole digger and augers, a star picket driver, a "D" Handle brush cutter and a petrol powered cement mixer.

Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield is strongly committed to a "Fly Neighbourly" policy ensuring good working relationships with other land owners in the district.

Pilots are requested to download the Fly Neighbourly Chart to be aware of and avoid where operationally possible, noise and over-fly sensitive locations adjacent to the airfield.

Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield requests that all members and visitors using the airfield's internal roads adhere to the signposted maximum Speed Limit of 20kph.

The Speed Limit maximises safety for all motorists and pedestrians, significantly reduces damage to the airfield's roadways and minimises the generation of dust which has an adverse affect on aircraft, buildings and human health.
