Our airport at Tyabb (PAC) is under an aggressive attack by the local shire!

PAC has been operating for over 50+ years, is one of our much loved main attractions , hosts amazing events for the locals (ppl come from all over Australia to attend) & importantly is a place of employment for so many! Peninsula Aero Club is under a direct & blunt attack by the Mornington Peninsula Shire - on Monday this week, without warning or consultation, the club & other businesses on the airport grounds received letters from the shire to stop work!

"The Shire has raised concerns that it is unable to locate permits which allow the Club to continue to operate as it has been doing for more than 50 years."

These missing permits are believed to include those that allow:

  • the use of the land as an Airport or Airfield
  • the operation of the flying school
  • a transport terminal
  • a place of assembly
  • a major sport and recreational facility
  • a major events facility (the biennial air show)

Following quoted by PAC President Jack Vevers "If these stop-work notices were to be enforced it would mean a massive loss of jobs and damage to local families and surrounding businesses," Vevers said.

"This is a direct response to the continuous attacks from the anti-airport faction and the shire appears to be attempting to thwart the potential for these businesses to access their existing use rights.

"The shire’s approach has been bombastic to say the least, and in some instances over the past few weeks, may have been unlawful with regards to our permit applications.

"It is our contention that PAC has permits and rights to support all of these functions and we will be defending our rights of existence after more than 55 years."
