bathurst airport
 

The Bathurst Airport is located in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales and is serviced by one airline, Regional Express Airlines (Rex). The airports history dates to just prior the second world war when local politicians campaigned for an airport for the region. The war prompted the Federal Government to establish the airport; immediately following the war commercial air services commenced with passenger flights to Sydney. Today several flying schools operate at the airport and it is used frequently by trainee pilots during their navigation training. There are no landing charges at Bathurst Airport for aircraft under 2000 kg which makes it a popular option as a destination for many pilots including trainee pilots from Bankstown Airport and Camden Airport. The airport has two primary runways: one sealed and one brown gravel.

There were app. 8,000 landings during 2010 including recreational flying, business jets, charters, regular passenger flights, emergency services, and Air Force flights. The airport is owned, managed and maintained by Bathurst Regional Council.
