Information

RAAF Base Pearce (ICAO: YPEA) is the main RAAF base in Western Australia. The base is located in Bullsbrook, north of Perth. It is used for training by the Royal Australian Air Force and the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

It is the busiest RAAF base in the country in terms of total aircraft moves, including civil moves at the Joint User bases. Although its primary role is pilot training, it remains the only permanent Air Force base on the west coast, and thus has a significant logistics role.

Of Note is the 5Km exclusion zone around the base's perimiter which the No 1 Airfield Defence Squadron actively patrols... while generally pointed in the right direction out of there it can land you a nasty fine or a brief meeting with the MP's if your caught
