Luskintyre Airfield was established in 1977 and is a 228 acre privately owned airfield near Newcastle in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Luskintyre’s aim is the preservation and operation of vintage aircraft – particularly the De–Havilland DH-82A Tiger Moth. The property has numerous hangars including Luskintyre Aircraft Restoration’s hangar which contains a number of vintage aircraft under construction.
The aircraft and airfield facilities are privately owned and the intent of all aircraft owners is that the airfield be seen as a “Flying Museum’. There are no commercial flying operations conducted at the field and commercial joy flights cannot be undertaken.
On the first Saturday of every even month there is a Tiger Day, where owners of Tiger Moths fly their aircraft (run by Luskintyre Tigers). Please note, joy flights are not available.
