Gladstone Airport Runway 10/28 to Close Next Weekend for ILS Testing

The Gladstone Airport Corporation informs local aviators that due to scheduled testing of the recently installed Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Gladstone Airport, Runway 10/28 will be closed during daylight hours on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December to all aircraft other than scheduled RPT services and emergency aircraft.

The photos below from Jamie C show the progress of the installation of the ILS antenna and equipment over recent weeks at Gladstone Airport.

If required, similar restrictions may also apply the following weekend.

Gladstone’s coal seam gas (CSG) to liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects have provided $10.5 million
for the installation of the ILS at Gladstone Airport.  The system - to be operational on Runway 10 - will significantly improve the ability of aircraft to land at the airport during adverse weather conditions, meaning fewer flight diversions to Rockhampton.
