Airside operations: Overhauling the airfield at Melbourne

The Fifth Ocean Club Board has decided to close the RAFA program effective March 22, 2023. The Board believes that further activation of the airfields and other facilities is not possible at this time for certain reasons.

The Board prohibited the use of the Fifth Ocean Club, RAFA, IAFA logos on diplomas, plaques and other award products under this program after that date, and also removed all references to the Fifth Ocean Club from the Program Regulations. All developments on this program (diplomas, plaques) are the property of the club “The Fifth Ocean” and remain in the club. Their further use is prohibited

The only exceptions are applications from applicants and activators of the program received as of the current date, which will be granted.
