Aeronautical hotel for pilots to open at Mudgee

The first of its kind in Australia, a luxury hotel located just 120m from the runway with a taxiway connection direct to its door is scheduled to open at Mudgee Airport next month.

Hanger House Hotel, designed for the hotel’s owner Observe Air as a multi purpose resort for pilots, it caters for groups of up to 14 guests and has facilities for functions as well as workshops, flight training and aircraft storage. It has five hotel suites, conference rooms, a pilot’s lounge, pilot’s residence, swimming pool and a commercial kitchen.

Maurice Patten of Patten Designs was commissioned by the company to design the hotel and it was built by local Mudgee builder Peter Barlow.

Chief pilot at Observe Air Brad Welch, is passionate about flying and is now living at the complex himself.

The process began in 2009, with six months of planning before building commenced in 2010. The project was completed last year and the hotel will be officially opened next month.
