Check In Details
You are required to contact your Pilot on the evening before your scheduled flight to check on the expected weather conditions, and to confirm the exact meeting time at Fergusson Winery for your flight.
Please call your Pilot on 0409 478 727 between 6.30pm and 7pm.
If you expect to be out of phone contact at this time you must call our office, or your pilot, to make alternative arrangements to obtain the meeting time details.
The meeting time changes according to the time of year, and the forecast weather conditions.
Your Pilot will have already been in contact with the Bureau of Meteorology before you call to obtain the latest forecast and the expected morning temperature.
On some occasions, if the weather forecast is uncertain, your Pilot may ask you to call back again in the early hours of the morning for a last minute weather update. This can be inconvenient, but could save you a wasted trip to the Valley if the weather has deteriorated.
Please allow sufficient time to arrive at Fergusson Winery by the nominated meeting time. Allow at least 50-60 minutes travel time from downtown Melbourne. We suggest that you check your Melways, or GPS for directions and travel times from your particular location on the evening before your flight.
It is extremely important that you do arrive on time. Weather conditions may prevent us from waiting for latecomers.
If you miss your flight due to being late you will forfeit your ticket.
We look forward to meeting you in the Yarra Valley.
If you have any questions relating to these check in details, please feel free to contact us on 0409 478 727
