Hangar Sites

Hangar sites(POA) can be sub-leased from Stradbroke Air P/L. These leases currently run through to 2029 with the QLD Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The survey plan shows current sub-lessees, leaving the unnamed ones currently available. Enquiries are welcomed.

To be granted a sub-lease, you will be required to become a club member. This is to ensure sub-lessees keep the interests of the club at heart and community facilities can be used by all in the best interests of all.

Community facilities have water and sewerage provided with power being generated on site. However sub-lessees have to provide their own water, sewerage and power supply to their sub-lease area.

For further information about what the Straddie Aero Club has to offer email us or give us a call. Fly in, have a coffee and we’ll be happy to show you around.
