Round 6 of the grant program now open

Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program

The Remote Airstrip Upgrade Program can enhance the safety and accessibility of aerodromes in remote and very remote areas of Australia, providing year round all weather access that will:

  • improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers using remote and very remote airstrips
  • facilitate improved delivery of essential goods and services such as food supplies, health care, community mail and passenger air services
  • complement air services delivery to communities subsidised under the Australian Government’s Remote Aviation Access Program (RAAP) through the Remote Air Services Subsidy (RASS) Scheme, and/or
  • meet operational requirements of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) or operators providing similar aeromedical services

Applications are invited from aerodromes identified as “remote or very remote” as defined by the 2016 Australian Statistical Geographic Standard (ASGS) Remoteness Area.
