Key asset

Ravensthorpe Airport is a key community infrastructure asset that provides critical access to capital city facilities in Perth.

Our Tourism Strategy 2023 set out the following 10-year vision:

“Sustainable regular public transport (RPT) air services that are not reliant on the mining industry”.

The Shire is ultimately seeking to leverage current closed charter (FIFO) demand to establish scheduled air transport (RPT) services between Ravensthorpe and Perth for the benefit of the local community and to attract new visitor markets.

The Shire of Ravensthorpe Corporate Business Plan 2020 – 2024 identifies the Ravensthorpe Airport service as:

“Airport capable of servicing chartered flights for industry, commercial and recreational aircraft, and emergency services aircraft and related facilities”.

The  Ravensthorpe Master Plan seeks to address the following priority objectives with respect to future infrastructure and facilities at Ravensthorpe Airport to:

  • Cater for potential future air transport services
  • Cater for future growth in general aviation activities
  • Cater for future emergency services and aeromedical aircraft operations
