RAAF Base Curtin

RAAF Base Curtin is a Royal Australian Air Force base located on the north coast of Western Australia. It was the first major military airfield built in Australia since World War II, and was constructed as a bare base that could be used for exercises or when required for national defence. Work at the site commenced in 1983, with the official opening of the base in 1988. The base is named in honour of former Prime Minister John Curtin.

Australia’s Department of Defence has commenced the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process for its F-35A Lightning II aircraft (commonly known as the Joint Strike Fighter). More information about how to be involved and have your say is available at www.f35evolution.com.au or contact 1800 830 205
