Airport History

Deniliquin Airport has quite an interesting aviation history. Originally under the control of the Department of Civil Aviation, the first air service established from the Deniliquin Airport started in 1928. The area has been serviced by a number of aviation operators since then.

From 30 June 1941, the Deniliquin airport was used as a training facility by the Royal Australian Air Force for the No.7 SFTS Flying Training School. Aircraft mainly in use was the Wirraway aircraft. During 1942/43 the average number of aircraft at the school was 130, until the school was disbanded in April 1948. Of interest is the memorial cemetery that has a number of servicemen interned that died and had a direct link to the Flying School.
