Central Coast Airport


Call for Expressions of Interest

Council is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from general aviation, aerospace and associated industry operators to establish or expand their businesses at a proposed new General Aviation Industry Hub at Central Coast Airport (formerly Warnervale Aerodrome), just 45 minutes outside Sydney.

Opportunities are available for short- and long-term lease of airside land or purpose built facilities at Central Coast Airport. 
Expressions of interest are open now!  Enter your details below to receive the EOI documentation.
It is envisaged that businesses in aviation education/training, logistics, technology, consulting and service industries will become part of an integrated aviation, education and technology precinct around the Central Coast Airport.  Central Coast Council is looking for proposals from operators that demonstrate innovative and forward thinking solutions that will support long-term industry development and jobs growth in the Central Coast region.

The EOI responses will be considered in developing a detailed airport Master Plan tailored to support the commercial general aviation and corporate aviation sectors in NSW and where appropriate to individual operators.

 Preference will be given to activities and operators who can add value to the future development of the airport as a general aviation industry hub, and provide a stimulus for regional economic development and employment.

  2. Complete and submit your proposal by 2:00pm Tuesday 16 May 2017
