Latrobe City Council is in the process of opening a commercial-industrial precinct with 40 serviced allotments with direct taxiway access to the main runway. Lots can be tailored to suit individual requirements of new businesses looking for a regional operation close to Melbourne.
The continued development and growth of Latrobe Regional Airport will create further opportunities for aviation-related businesses to establish and expand.
The $2 million dollar works that were completed February 2013 included a $1.25 million prototyping hangar, offices and amenities; and $750,000 of civil works upgrades including runway and taxiway repairs and extension and a new helipad and engine run-up bay.
