Truscott-Mungalalu Airbase in WA is the largest all-weather airbase in the far north Kimberley. MTA was given CASA registration R093 in April 2005.
With its all-weather sealed runway it provides significant operational and safety efficiencies for aviation operations in the Kimberley / Timor Sea area.
MTA complies with CASA’s Manual of Standards (MOS) 139 regulations. It allows jets of up to a MOTW of 39T to land at the airbase.
