Moorabbin Airport is essentially a domestic local airport (no International flights), Australia's third busiest airport by aircraft movement currently recording 250,000 movements per annum.
Moorabbin Airport is Australia's leading General Aviation airport, home to premier flying training schools for both fixed and rotary wing operations.
Training is a significant component of aviation operations with two thirds of our movements being recorded by over a dozen flying schools.
Other aviation uses include aircraft maintenance, air charter, freight, recreational flying and air work, such as aerial photography and surveying, as well as emergency services such as the Royal Flying Doctors and Air Ambulance Services.
Moorabbin Airport is home to over 50 aviation organisations, including over a dozen flying schools and some 350 aircraft and helicopters are located on the 294 hectare site.
As Moorabbin is a metropolitan airport there is always a great mix of aircraft on site, including vintage biplanes, training craft and helicopters to sleek corporate jets.
Moorabbin is home base to Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) operator King Island Airlines, which links King Island to the mainland with daily flights, carrying premium crayfish, cheese and tourists.
