Fly neighbourly

The Mount Beauty Airport Management Association welcomes aviators to use the facility and enjoy the surrounding panoramic scenery and the hospitality of the town. In return, we ask that pilots avoid flying over the town except when approaching to land if conditions require the use of runway 32.

Where operationally possible we encourage powered aircraft to use runway 14 for landings and 32 for takeoffs.


The airport is managed and maintained by the Airport Management Association using fees collected from airport users and leasees. To assist the Management Association to maintain this facility we ask that pilots pay a landing fee of $10 per visit. A collection box for the fees is located at the front of the terminal building.
