YML1 Maylands Aerodrome - Closed

(28th March 2010)
Updated 7th Jun 2012 - ICAO code changed due to clash with Maitland SA

This is a historical site that was Perth's Main airfield from 1921 until 1963 and deserves to be remembered.  The two remaining Hangars and the Maylands Brickworks are heritage listed.  This is best flown with a Tailwheel Cessna, Chipmunk, Tiger, Auster or DC3.

"Maylands continued as a base for General Aviation operations, but the aerodrome was really too small and the circuit conflicted with nearby Perth/Guildford. By the end of the 1950s, DCA had decided that Maylands should be closed and ordered all the tenants to move. The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia, for example, left Maylands on 23 April 1959 and set up operations at Perth/Guildford pending the opening of the new General Aviation airport at Jandakot. The opening of Jandakot in 1963 allowed Maylands to be finally closed to all operations on 30 June 1963."
