Tumut Aerodrome NSW

Tumut Aerodrome in NSW  is a small airport constructed during the 1960s. It replaced an earlier airfield known as Butler’s Field on a nearby private property. The airport caters mostly to the general aviation and recreational category aircraft. The aerodrome and is located within two hours flying time of both Sydney and Melbourne, half an hour from Canberra. It is also within minutes of Wagga Wagga Airport, offering major aircraft maintenance facilities.

The main tenant at the airfield is the Tumut Aero Club, who offer flight training and hangar rental on-site. The Aero Club also maintains the Tumut Airport Lodge, a conversion of the former terminal building. It now functions as an accommodation facility for up to four people aimed at visiting pilots and those stranded at the airport by weather. 

The Blue Sky Tumut Aviation Estate airpark is currently under development at the northern end of the field. Recreational flight training provider Air Escape is based at Tumut and is accredited by Recreational Aviation Australia.
