Listening to teh BBC this morning they had a doctor on from Bergamo in Italy (he has the virus)

"This is not treatable by medical means. We have no inoculations, no injection, no medicine that stops this virus yet. Only isolation will stop or slow the spread"

All entry is likely to be via YFLI.

Bergamo is one of my favourite cities - at least the old part. This is where Brembo brakes come from - the Brembo river runs past Bergamo. Such a tragedy.

It's not a very nice thing to say, but talking about how best to evade the infection control measures being put in place to try and slow a pandemic that has already killed thousands isn't a very nice thing to do either.

You are more disgusting with every post. You should have a long hard look at yourself.

The current YFLI NOTAM should end tomorrow and the new requirements for entry promulgated. Essential flight crew only and you need to be part of an essential service if youíre a passenger. They arenít messing around with it.

The flinders island NOTAM is an overreaction, but in which the ARO thought they were doing the right thing - but no, and this is fear related ... it is what it is - and it should / will be withdrawn

Where as Okihara ... go lick a cruise ship or something you goose

This method is also used to prevent revolutions and public uprising as well as implement any draconian or freedom restrictive policy on the subjects. Sometimes they take longer and with smaller steps...

Nothing prevents you overflying king island and landing somewhere in Tasmania. What happens then is a different matter.

Still waiting!
Iím sure your source is correct! Just the timing is somewhat lacking. Maybe tomorrow!

In case I wasnít clear, to fly into Flinders Island you will have to land at Whitemark and get cleared and then fly on to any of the other strips on the island. You canít go direct to the smaller strips.

Same goes when flying in from mainland Tasmania.

The above is not relevant for flying into mainland / the big island Tasmania.
