24th Annual Barnyard Fly-in

by John Alford, RAA Oshawa

Come on out to the RAA Oshawa District Recreational Aircraft Association organized fly-in, on Sunday, 8 September 2019 at Hawkefield, CHF4, N44 00, W 78 39, 620 ASL (private strip) ORONO in the Canada Flight Supplement.

It is a friendly gathering of pilots and enthusiasts, their families and their ultra-lights, amateur-builts, warbirds and certified aircraft from all parts of southern Ontario.


Land on the best 3,300 foot grass strip around.

Hours of Fly-in are 0900-1500 hrs.

Overnight camping on field is available, if required. (Portable toilets, no other facilities.)

Please keep safety as a first priority and comply with Transport Canada regulations.

Keep all circuits to the WEST , avoiding residential areas. Traffic advisory frequency is 123.2. NORDO aircraft to follow standard arrival procedures. Circuit height is 1600 feet ASL. Amphibious planes that have trouble taxiing on long grass, please land long or short and park at the ramp, and please notify our radio operator on contact so other aircraft can be spaced to accommodate the longer taxi. We will expect amphibians to back-taxi on the runway rather than taxi onto the general parking area.

** Note the runway 18 threshold is displaced 300 feet to avoid parked aircraft.

FLY MART buy and sell available on site. Bring your treasures to swap and sell.

Breakfast and lunch served for nominal cost, thanks to the Bowmanville Kinsmen club.
