The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association of Australia Executive Director, Benjamin Morgan, met with the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party (SSF), Thursday 20th August, speaking with The Hon Rob Borsak MLC and The Hon Mark Banasiak MLC about a range of general aviation industry concerns, including;

  • Central Coast Warnervale Airport and the Warnervale Airport Restriction Act of 1996;
  • Access for fixed-wing and rotary bush-pilots to national parks and crown lands; and
  • Carriage of firearms onboard general aviation aircraft and regulatory requirements.

“I appreciated the opportunity to discuss aviation community concerns regarding the Central Coast Warnervale Airport and the Warnervale Airport Restrictions Act, which has stopped the airport from being developed to its full general aviation potential.”

“I also discussed a range of fixed-wing and rotary bush-pilot concerns, seeking support to help open up recreational access to national parks and crown lands for use by the aviation community.

“On behalf of members, I discussed a range of issues pertaining to the carriage of firearms in recreational and general aviation aircraft.”

“I would like to thank both Mr Rob Borsak and Mr Mark Banasiak of the SSF for the opportunity to meet, it is important that our association cultivates strong working relationships on all sides of the political landscape.”, Executive Director Benjamin Morgan.
