Noosa Airstrip

Good Morning and Happy Friday Everyone !

Am hoping that someone here might have some information on the Noosa Airstrip ?

I haven't been able to find any information regarding wether it is a private strip or owned by council.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy the blue skies this weekend !

Hey QLDPilotGuy,

According to the ERSA online the remarks have Restricted OPS, PVT. A phone number and email address is listed.

Have you checked your ERSA?

Seems to be privately run. Try [email protected] or 0400 902 166.

Long time ago it was privately operated but perfectly friendly.

They used to lock the gates maybe sunset to 8/9am ?!?!? - if still so, an early departure might involve a bit of a walk. Used to have no lighting (or approaches), day VMC only.

Depends on what you are in.

A microlight, land at Teewah. But no transport or anything except angry model fliers who want to kill you for putting ruts in their strip.

A Cessna, Noosa airstrip near Noosa Civic. Privately owned and run, gravel road to negotiate. See ERSA

Sensible aircraft, land at Sunny Toast at Maroochydore. Rental cars, taxis, buses, coffee......

A helicopter, depends on where you want to be. Lots of options. But just don't make any noise while you are sorting your options, very vocal couple of people up here who have the ear of the local MP.

Noosa Airstrip

Ahhh, the RPT Twotters and Nomads on final over Lake Weyba, running the gauntlet of the pelicans, ibis and cormorants. Gee, how long ago was that .......?

Went for a drive up there to check it out about 6 months ago during the day on a sunny Saturday and the gate was locked with private property sign displayed so I couldn’t get anywhere near it to even see buildings or aircraft.

It is private, but it's most definitely still active. The number in the ERSA leads you to a bloke who I assume owns the land. Planes come in and go every known and then. From memory it's around $20 to land.

Still privately owned. Permission required. Depending on aircraft size, landing fee is $50. About 900m usable, gravel centre with 100m bitumen turning node at the north western end. Don't stray off the strip as the sides are very soft. Bitumen parking area at the Lake Weyba end. Once again, be careful where you taxi. Tall trees at the North Western end, so land from the East and takeoff to the East, wind permitting.

A pity no one can start a service to/from BNE. Caravans might be ideal and economical.

The Bruce Hwy these days is fraught with risks of extended delays.

Caravan Service

Find me a guaranteed customer that’ll pay a few thousand dollars for each aircraft trip five times per week, and I’ll bring a Caravan or two.
