Essendon Airport is a general aviation aerodrome that is situated on 305 hectares, 11 kilometres northwest of Melbourne's CBD and 7 kilometres southeast of Melbourne Airport.

Essendon Airport remains a vital aviation resource for Melbourne and regional Victoria. It continues to provide excellent facilities to the aviation industry, with a special emphasis on Police and Emergency Services, flight support and the corporate aviation market. In addition, landside development at the airport offers the opportunity to create an integrated business environment unlike anything else in Melbourne. 

Since privatisation of the airport in 2001, EAPL has demonstrated its commitment to establishing a commercially viable, safe and functional general aviation facility which meets the needs of projected aviation requirements whilst utilising the property's strategic land holdings for high quality commercial development.
