Luskintyre Airfield was established in 1977 and is a 228 acre privately owned airfield near Newcastle in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Luskintyre’s aim is the preservation and operation of vintage aircraft – particularly the De-Havilland DH-82A Tiger Moth. The property has numerous hangars including Luskintyre Aircraft Restoration’s hangar which contains a number of vintage aircraft under construction. Luskintyre Aircraft Restoration specialise in restoring vintage aircraft with his own special style of old fashioned craftsmanship but using modern methods and materials.
The aircraft and airfield facilities are privately owned and the intent of all aircraft owners is that the airfield be seen as a “Flying Museum’. There are no commercial flying operations conducted at the field and commercial joyflights cannot be undertaken.
