Information

Camden Airport is one of two General Aviation airports to serve Sydney. The other is Bankstown Airport.

A pretty little airport set in a loop of the Nepean River, the airport offers easy access to uncluttered, uncontrolled airspace for the recreational pilot.

It is a controlled airport with a control tower designed in the days when government architecture apparently had few budgetry restraints. It is quite an edifice.

Camden airport is the home of a significant gliding community, sport aviation, hot air balloons, helicopters and aircraft maintenance and restoration.

Originally a private airstrip, the area that was to become Camden Airport was utilised by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and other Allied air forces during World War II.

Camden airfield hosted various RAAF Squadrons at various stages during the war. In addition the Central Flying School operated between 1940 and 1942, and a British transport unit, No. 243 Squadron RAF, was based at Camden during the latter part of World War II. Camden was also the No.13 Operational Base. By 1946 the airfield had been returned to its civil status.
