“Organise your next aviation event at Rylstone Aerodrome”

We can make light work of organising your events at Rylstone Aerodrome Airpark. With enough space for 200 or more aircraft to fly-in for the day, or tie down overnight, your event at Rylstone Aerodrome will be something talked about for years to come. Located just 3 or 4 minutes from the charming township of Rylstone, there is a range of comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation in town and the two pubs and other cafes, restaurants and facilities all combine to make for a memorable and successful event with a difference.
We can organise BBQs and dinners for your group, visits to the nearby Mudgee wineries, golf at the Henbury or Mudgee Golf Clubs etc.

On Saturday 14th May 2016, 45 aircraft flew into Rylstone Aerodrome Airpark to attend a fly-in and open day, attended by now fewer than 120 people. Attendees enjoyed a BBQ lunch, a spectacular RC aerial display and were able to view some remarkable flying machines.

Later that evening 100 guests enjoyed sunset drinks on the apron of one of the newly erected hangars followed by a sumptuous three course catered dinner inside the hangar. Special guest speaker, Michael Smith captivated the audience with his amazing account with accompanying slide show of his record breaking solo world circumnavication in his two seat Searey Amphibian aircraft.

The evening was an outstanding success and the Rylstone Aerodrome Community looks forward to hosting many more such events into the future.
