Bathurst Regional Airport NSW

Bathurst Regional Airport in NSW services to town of Bathurst and surrounding areas.

The airport’s history dates to just prior the Second World War when local politicians campaigned for an airport for Bathurst. The war prompted the Federal Government to establish the aerodrome during the war years.

Immediately following the war commercial air services commenced with passenger flights to Sydney.

Today several flying schools operate at the airport and it is used frequently by trainee pilots during their navigation training.

There are no landing charges for aircraft under 2000kg which makes it a popular option as a destination for many pilots.

The airport has two primary runways: one sealed and one brown gravel (with large grass area either side of gravel). It also has one secondary runway used for glider traffic. The sealed runway, taxiway and apron have lighting facilities which are pilot-activated.

The airport is used for recreational flying, business jets, charters, regular passenger flights, emergency services, and Air Force flights. Bathurst Regional Council owns, manages and maintains the Airport.
