Cessnock Airport has sites suitable for aviation-based service industries and tourism businesses
Located, 6 kilometres north of Cessnock, in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, Cessnock Airport has sites suitable for aviation-based service industries and tourism businesses. Cessnock Airport is owned and operated by Cessnock City Council. Facilities include a sealed runway (1097x30m and pavement strength of 5,700/450 – 65PSI), parallel taxi way, sealed apron (55x45m), terminal building and fuel services.
The Airport is used for general aviation, attracting charter plane and helicopter flights generated by the surrounding hotels and resorts, wineries, golf courses, conference and function centres and major entertainment venues and the near-by coal mines in the Singleton area. The Airport is also home to several flight schools, aircraft maintenance facilities, tourism base adventure flight operators, helicopter companies and the Hunter Recreational Flying Club which caters for home-build and ultra-light planes (50+ planes).
Land is available on both sides of the airport for aviation-based development. The Airport is ideal for:
- General aviation businesses looking for an ‘affordable’ home with ready access to the Sydney and Hunter markets.
- Business to service home-build and ultra-light planes.
- On-site accommodation for flight school students, pilots flying planes into Cessnock for maintenance and other airport users.
- Development of a hanger complex for private planes.
- An Adventure Tourism experience hub
