The Stanthorpe Aerodrome is on the edge of rural and residential development and to date is unlicensed. The terminal building contains male and female toilets. No formal refuelling system exists; however fuel for emergency purposes can be obtained by phoning Phil Vichie on (07) 4681 1827. There are no landing charges.The Aerodrome is an important community asset, one that needs to be developed for the economic benefits to the region. Council plans to upgrade the Aerodrome to encourage aviation related businesses to invest and to possibly create jobs within the aviation industry. An improvement program is underway and includes:
- Upgrading the access road (completed)
- Area set aside for future upgrade of the terminal building
- Area set aside for refuelling operations
- Area available for tying down aircraft
- Extension of taxiway and taxiway lighting (underway)
Council is offering potential interested parties the option to lease or purchase the land. Most other regional airports offer one or the other, but Stanthorpe’s point of difference is that we are willing to capture all sections of the market by offering lease or freehold.
Council is offering 8 blocks initially and those lots are approximately 1000 square metres in size.
