Katanning Airstrip in Western Australia is a small regional airport that caters for the Royal Flying Doctor, Emergency Services, Private Users and the Katanning Aero Club. It was formally opened on 17 October 1982.
In June 2013 a $650,000 Katanning Airport upgrade was completed, part-funded with a $322,600 grant through the Royalties for Region’s Regional Airports Development Scheme. The sealing and widening of the runway to an ‘all-weather’ standard improves safety and accessibility for Royal Flying Doctor Service medical evacuations and emergency services situations such as flood, fire and natural disaster relief.
The upgrade will also benefit a range of other services using the Katanning Airport such as the local gold mining industry, the Australian Defence Force and other private users. The installation of a water tank at the airport now also provides the capability of filling the water bomber planes if they are required for fire in the region, further enhancing the safety benefits to local communities.
