Airspeed Aviation in the Community
Airspeed Aviation is proud to support:
- Scouts Australia Air Activities unit
- Upper Hunter Shire Council’s Young Endeavour scheme (Silver sponsor 2010, 2011, 2012)
- Scone Horse Festival (Gold Sponsor 2013 and 2014)

Aviation is a specialised field. As a result, Airspeed Aviation contributes to the growth of the local economy by bringing skilled people and their families into Scone.
Airspeed Aviation employs 7 pilots and two Management staff. In addition, through our maintenance partner Scone Aircraft Maintenance we provide 80% of the workload for their 12-strong workforce.
Supporting other small businesses
We are based in a small town in NSW and we firmly believe that small businesses in rural areas must support each other to remain viable and to ensure specialist services are available.
Airspeed Aviation has a published “Buy Local” Policy which has been distributed to the Chamber of Commerce in an effort to not only hold ourselves accountable to our own aspirations, but to inspire other local businesses to follow our lead.
Upper Hunter Shire Council “Young Endeavour” scheme
Airspeed Aviation has been an enthusiastic sponsor of the Young Endeavour program operated by the Upper Hunter Shire Council for several years, and we generally sponsor on flying student each year for the program.
