Aeroplane landing areas

We are responsible for a number of Aeroplane Landing Areas (ALAs) in the region that are suitable for light aircraft landings.

PLEASE NOTE: The suitability of these airfields is not guaranteed due to infrequent use and inspection. Wildlife hazard and, in some cases, stock movement may exist so we advise caution when using. It is the pilot’s responsibility to contact the relevant Airport Reporting Officer for the latest condition report and permission to use.
