The Pilots Touring Guide is for planning flying adventures. It provides information on destinations where a touring pilot is welcome and there are interesting things to see or people to meet.

The Guide has notes on the attractions of the property or town, its history, accommodation and phone numbers. As well as locating the airfield, the Guide indicates the availability of fuel and how to get around.

In a word, it answers the questions of ''why go there" and "what will you find when you do".

The Pilots Touring Guide is available in three different formats. Firstly, the destination information is integrated into the successful OzRunways flight planning app. Secondly, it is available to download as a PDF from this website (see below) and finally it is available as a wire bound book (again see below). The Guide is no longer available from Apple's iBook Store.


The Book

The Pilots Touring Guide is in its fifth bi-annual edition. It is revised continuously as touring pilots write in with updates such as 'so and so' has brought the property or the strip has been lengthended, and so on. New destinations are added in each edition and some are dropped off. It is reprinted every two years. Payment can be made with PayPal (which accepts credit card payment) or if necessary by EFT.

The electronic version - OzRunways

The destination information for each of the entries in the Guide is integrated into the successful OzRunways flight planning app. There are usually 2 or 3 'mini' revisions during the two year period. These are incorporated into OzRunway's regular updates. Payment is made through subscription to the OzRunways app.

The electronic version - PDF download

This website provides the facility below, to download a PDF version into a tablet or into a desktop computer. Payment is by PayPal.
