Jandakot Airport  has  installed parking meters in public  car parking areas, which will commence operation in December 2012.

The machines are located in the public car park next to the “Sugar Bird Lady” Mooney memorial to Robin Miller, and the public car park near the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia.

The car parking management rights have  been contracted to Wilsons Parking, and Wilsons will be responsible for collecting the fees,  issuing fines, and wheel clamping.

General aviation operators (aero clubs, flight training organisations and maintenance operators) are unhappy, as it appears that Jandakot Airport Holdings did this without consultation or  notification. The GA operators are concerned that the additional costs are another disincentive to people interested in learning to fly or become aircraft engineers.

    Just want to inquire, I am taking a fly in fly out job. Out of Jandakot. The roster is 2 weeks on. How much is that going to cost me just for car parking in a motor vehicle.

      Hi Judith,
      The photo in the article shows the sign displaying the parking rates, so you should be able to calculate the cost from that.
      However, I am sure you could make a cheaper arrangement with one of the local aviation operators – no harm in asking them.
      Regards,
      David

    Hi David,

    Just wondering if free parking is available near the public viewing area and cafe.

    Cheers,

      Hi Luke,
      Yes – a limited number of free parking bays are available at the viewing area near the Aviators Cafe (near the Control Tower) at Jandakot.
      Regards,
      David
