Latrobe Aerospace Technology Precinct at Latrobe Regional Airport

Latrobe City Council is calling on state and federal governments to invest in Australia’s only Integrated Advanced Air Mobility Ecosystem to diversify our economy and create new industries.  

Established in 2024 at the Latrobe Regional Airport, this state of-the-art hub is the first of its kind in Australia. Launched in partnership with Invest Victoria, this strategically positioned Precinct was designed with a vision to generate investment and technological advancements in emerging zero emissions industries, particularly Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and other eco-friendly aviation initiatives that offer significant economic, environmental, and industrial benefits.  

This is why we are calling on both state and federal governments to partner with us and build a dedicated AAM facility that will support small-scale manufacturing, research, and development, and be a ‘launchpad’ for startups.

Our proposal for the Precinct also aims to activate council-owned commercially zoned land by extending a taxiway, facilitating development, providing access to land for the niche aviation market, and importantly generate hundreds of jobs.

We are calling for:  

  • The state and federal governments to partner with us to drive investment at the Latrobe Regional Airport.
