Rottnest Aerodrome

The Rottnest Aerodrome has a sealed runway just under 1,300 metres in length and is used on a daily basis for fixed-wing and helicopter operations.

The Rottnest Aerodrome plays an important part in the training of civilian pilots in Western Australia. Trainee pilots often practice circuits, cross-wind landings and take-offs using the Aerodrome. Rottnest can be challenging for trainee pilots of light fixed-wing aircraft due to the strong cross-winds often experienced as the aircraft come in to land.

The Rottnest Aerodrome is also important for training in the use of radio navigation aids. Rottnest has a non-directional beacon (NDB), which pilots use to learn night flying. NDBs are located at every major Airport and many minor airfields around Australia as aids to navigation.
