Port Pirie Aerodrome Master Plan

Port Pirie Regional Council has released an updated Port Pirie Aerodrome Master Plan which has gone out for community consultation.

Please note, Community Consultation for the Port Pirie Aerodrome Master Plan has now CLOSED.

The Masterplan plays an important role in providing a framework for maintenance and potential future development of the aerodrome land in the short term and over the next 20 years.

Currently, the Port Pirie Aerodrome consists of a 3-runway layout making it ideal for pilot training and also servicing aero medical, aerial firefighting, charter and private flying.

The Aerodrome includes freight services, medical (RFDS), a refueling facility as well as a Bellman Hangar which Council currently has 9 Licenses to house private planes.

The CFS has also acquired a portion of land for their command centre, which is used for training and bushfire events.

Some of the non-aviation activities include driver and motorcycle training, storage shed (Rotary, YMCA, BH Club), cropping land leased to a local farmer and a weather station from the Bureau of Meteorology.

The Masterplan provides the opportunity to expand the runway which will allow for larger planes to land in Port Pirie, the opportunity to build private hangars, a possible flight training school / accommodation and create residential allotments and a future industrial area.
