Supporting Local Events & Programs

At Launceston Airport we understand the importance of working with and contributing to our local community.

Launceston Airport builds partnerships with many local organisations to support a range of arts, tourism and cultural experiences in Tasmania.

Our current programs involve the following events:

Community Aviation Consultation Group (CACG)

The independently chaired Launceston Airport Community Aviation Consultation Group (CACG) builds on existing community consultation processes, and reaffirms the importance of community consultation to Launceston Airport, providing a regular two-way communication forum for the airport community and our neighbours.

The CACG’s role is to provide an independent forum where opinions, issues, impacts and information regarding the airport can be expressed and exchanged between committee members. It also assists Launceston Airport in identifying current and emerging community trends and opinions, with a genuine desire between all interested parties to resolve issues that may emerge. The CACG will assist in ensuring debate on such matters is well-informed and undertaken in a spirit of collaboration.

The CACG is neither an arbitration nor a decision-making body and discussion at CACG meetings will not be allowed to be dominated by a single topic or an individual member. The CACG has no power to direct or implement policy in regards the development of Launceston Airport. The CACG membership consists of a wide range of community stakeholders with an interest in the Airport and meets twice a year under the chairmanship of James McKee.

The Community Aviation Consultation Group is part of the Federal Government’s Aviation White Paper recommendations and subsequent Airports Act Amendment Bill.

Australia Pacific Airports (Launceston) acknowledges the First Nations people and Traditional Owners of Tasmania including the Land that Launceston Airport operates on. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all other First Nations People.
