Launch Site Location:
Our Serpentine launch site is located approximately 43km from Bendigo along the Loddon Valley highway.
For those heading out of Melbourne, drive to Bendigo, and then out through Eaglehawk along the Loddon Valley highway (B260), after approximately 30 mins start looking for a bridge over “Bullock Creek” 3.5km from this bridge you will see a cluster of trees, and on your right you will see a gate, you can enter through this gate and drive to the launch site. Please approach the site slowly as we all don’t want to be covered in dust, and there maybe cables across the road.
If you miss this entrance 6.5km from the creek you will see another entrance to your right, drive in through here and then right out along the track past the harvester shed, follow the road along the edge of the field until it makes a right hand turn, continue to follow this until your reach the intersection, where you will find our range head.
If you continue down the highway and your reach “Serpentine” you have gone too far!
For Serpentine the GPS coordinate of the entry gate is -36.50066, 144.01692
Keep your eyes open for the club sign identifying the usual access to the range off the highway. A modified (shorter) Flyers Briefing will be held at 10.00am sharp and anyone planning to fly must attend the briefing.
Please let us know if you will be attempting to Certify. Members attempting Level 2 are requested to advise the President, Isaac Sims in advance. There may be options to complete the written exam PRIOR to the launch weekend.
The maximum altitude that we can fly is 23,500 feet AMSL. Flights above 13,500 feet AMSL must be requested and approved in advance by the committee.
