Aviation Media and News since 2008


With the introduction of our new and upgraded web site, we have been going back through old interviews and footage gathering comments by people that have been involved with fiveDME over the years. As we find more and new quotes are given, we’ll add them to our collection.

Here’s what participants and readers say about fiveDME:

5DME has managed our CCTRacing web page and media for over 2 years. We have found the team at 5DME to be extremely professional, efficient and also full of great ideas for our media management. The team work well with our marketing people and are adaptable and flexible with their work always providing us with the highest quality outcomes.

Thank you for your excellent video coverage of the event and your support for Clare Valley.

Aviation needs more supporters like you!

Grand Opening 2014


Just a quick thank you. I am pleased to see our web site showing increasing numbers along with new visitors. Your strategy has worked and is now bringing in the results. I am sure with the coming events we are planning for this year 2015 we will increase our exposure and continue to expand assuring the returns we both believed possible for the museum and the web site.

I appreciate the efforts and dedication of 5DME in publicising the museum. The time you have put in bringing our level and exposure to the general public just shows it’s not a pipe dream and it’s all been possible with assistance of 5DME.

Kind Regards

 Dear David,

On behalf of myself, the Organising Committee and all those volunteers that helped at the 2012 Parafield Airshow, I would like to extend a very grateful Thank You to The 5DME Team for your support in making this such a successful event. I believe our team exhibited the best values of professionalism and dedication in making this event the success it was. We have received very positive feedback from the industry and governing bodies and have been encouraged by this to continue the event into the future.

You will be pleased to hear that we raised over $20,000 from the event, some of which will be reinvested in the next event and the rest being donated to aviation related charity organisations including the South Australian Aviation Museum and the Air Force Cadets.

Without your assistance, this event would not have been possible and I personally hope that we can count on your support for the next event, tentatively scheduled for November 2013. We will then run the event every two years, keeping the event at the end of the year.

We have also carefully analysed our performance at the previous event and will implement a raft of improvements for the next event. We are also in the process of consulting with the stakeholders as to how we can improve the event, going forward. We now intend to grow the airshow steadily over the next few events as a major highlight in Adelaide’s social calendar and hopefully, inject steadily more funds into the local northern and aviation communities.

Kind Regards,
John Squires
Chairman, Parafield Airshow Committee
