Cowra is hoping to attract new aviation businesses to the Central West NSW with 21 freehold lots available at its local airport.

The local council has opened a tender process for 21 commercially zoned lots in a new aviation development at Cowra Airport, which features a 1,630m bitumen spray-sealed runway, upgraded landing rights and aircraft parking including a hard stand for heavy aircraft.


Cowra Mayor Bill West said the airport had huge potential to generate economic benefits for the town such as bringing new jobs to the area.

“This is your open invitation to one of the most beautiful parts of NSW with unlimited opportunity in unrestricted airspace; all land will be fully-serviced with water, power, sewer, and NBN fibre-to- the-premises with no landing fees (under seven tonnes maximum take-off weight),” Cr West said.

“This development is designed to help create new aviation-related and employment-creating industries in our town.

“Air industries and operators are technology-savvy, high-value, clients who bring a range of complementary economic benefits to areas where they are encouraged to operate.”


Currently, Cowra Airport has pilot training, air charter, commercial and rural fire-fighting services, as well as recreational flights. Businesses already at the airport include light sport and general aviation aircraft manufacturer Brumby Aircraft Australia, which has Aviation Industry Corporation of China as a partner.

The tender closes July 29. More details can be found on the Cowra Airport website.

    These types of infrastructure developments are much more useful in developing rural Australia and the nation in general. than adding another lane to a congested capital city road.
