Remote Aerodrome Inspection Programme


The Remote Aerodrome Inspection (RAI) Programme is part of the Australian Government's Regional Aviation Access Programme (RAAP). RAI provides identified remote Indigenous communities with annual aerodrome inspections and related services to assist those communities to meet their aviation safety obligations.

The Programme provides identified Indigenous communities across northern Australia with the following services:

  • technical aerodrome inspection services
  • aerodrome reporting officer training
  • ad hoc aviation technical advice

The Programme does not fund remedial works or operating costs for airstrips.

Key eligibility

To be eligible for this Programme you must be one of the identified Indigenous Communities.
