Welcome to the Frogs Hollow A.L.A. the home to the ONLY 4 seat Victa Air Cruiser 210cs ever built and 3 of Australia's 7 Falco's. For those that have not been here before, YFGS is located about 8 Nm south of the township of Bega, N.S.W. (yes, that cheese place). 36°45'38.25"S 149°48'15.40"E
The main grass strip is just over 1000 m (36/18), with a cross strip about 600m (09-27), not recommended for first timers due to trees at the western end. Also the Bega District Model Club shares the airfield and flies on Sunday and Wednesday mornings, their clubhouse being towards the south eastern end of the field the usual approach procedures apply, with inbound calls on 126.7.
The modellers have a radio and your inbound call will ensure that they are able to have all models on the ground prior to your arrival. Adjacent to the southern windsock there is an orange flashing strobe light in front of their club house which indicates when a model is airborne. So come along and enjoy the hospitality of the scenic sapphire coast who knows, you may just get to watch some of the annual whale migration that passes thru. (There are usually hundreds going down the coast during the migration season.)
Windsocks are located at the north western end on the runway and a second windsock is located on the south eastern end in front of the Modellers clubhouse. A fly over is preferred before landing as the airfield is part of a working farm and cattle graze on the strip from time to time. If not a member of the Frogs Hollow flyers prior permission is required of the land owner as the airfield is situated on Private Property.
The members and committee of the Frogs Hollow Flyers take no responsibility for any incidents or occurrences, as always it is the responsibility of the pilot in command to ensure that both they and their aircraft are capable of safely arriving and departing this airfield.
