Warnervale airport

Warnervale Airport is your gateway to one of the most spectacular areas for aviation in Australia. With beaches, lakes and mountains all within minutes of flying time from the runway, taking off from the Central Coast Aero Club’s base is an experience every pilot should make a regular part of their flight plans.

Warnervale is located about 50 minutes from the northern suburbs of Sydney or the Newcastle CBD via the M1 motorway. Access is via Jack Grant Avenue (off Sparks Road). Plenty of parking is available as are light refreshments.

The Central Coast is one of Australia’s most popular tourism regions. With a range of local attractions for all ages, as well as easy access to Sydney, the Hunter Valley and inland Australia, it’s the perfect base for aviators looking to take break.

YWVA is listed in ERSA (limited info), and also in the AOPA airfield directory.
