Parafield Airport is located 18km north of the central business district of Adelaide and is surrounded by residential developments.
Parafield Airport was established in the 1930s and is a general aviation airport primarily used by light aircraft. For the past 40 years or so, a main function of the airport has been pilot training. Flight training now accounts for most of the airport’s aircraft movements.
Unlike Adelaide Airport, which has a curfew, Parafield Airport operates 24 hours a day but noise abatement procedures apply.
Parafield Airport provides useful community information on their website.
