Belmont Airport Australia
Belmont Airport (IATA: BEO, ICAO: YPEC) is an airfield located in the Lake Macquarie suburb of Pelican, 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. For most of its history, the airfield functioned as the base for Aeropelican Air Services, who operated commuter flights to and from Sydney using DHC-6 Twin Otters, however services were withdrawn in 2006 and the airfield was sold to the Mirvac Group for $5.5 million in 2008. The airport is located on a narrow peninsula between the Pacific Highway and a shallow tidal inlet that forms the entrance to Lake Macquarie. As of December 2013, the 15 ha (37 acres) site has fallen into disuse and is again listed for sale for an estimated $4.8 million.
