Midcoast Microlights operates from modern facilities within a large renovated hangar.
The Flying School uses a hangar with associated training rooms, office, staff rooms and an engineering area.
Some aircraft are housed on aircraft lifts, which enables floor space to be kept to a premium. Roof space also is used for some wing storage.
Students using their own aircraft can negotiate short term hangar arrangements if space is available.
Accommodation can be arranged at motels or caravan parks in Coffs Harbour.
