Wentworth Aerodrome Open to daytime traffic

The Wentworth Aerodrome is now open for daytime traffic.

The main runway is operational, however the North-South runway is still closed for ongoing works.

There is ample parking space for aircraft and there is access to fuel.

Daytime traffic was able to use the main runway from Wednesday for the first time since April 2020 when work on the $9.12 million Wentworth Aerodrome redevelopment project commenced.

Wentworth Shire Council Mayor Susan Nichols said the redevelopment, which is the biggest project Council has ever undertaken, was nearing completion.

“It is exciting to see planes back in the air from Wentworth Aerodrome,” Cr Nichols said.

“This project really is a jewel in the crown for the Wentworth region and I can’t wait to see the finished product when we will have an all-weather facility able to be accessed 24 hours a day.”

Wentworth Shire Council advises there will be intermittent closures as the aerodrome redevelopment project continues, however work can largely continue while the main runway is in use.

Aviators will be notified by NOTAM of closures.
