Moorabbin Airport currently has the capacity to house some 600 fixed wing and rotary aircraft. This comprises 230 in hangars, 160 in licensed or tarmac parking areas and the remainder on open land allocated to aircraft parking

Lighting

Runways 17L/35R and 17R/35L are equipped with low intensity runway lighting.

Air Traffic Control
The current control tower at Moorabbin Airport is located in the central western zone of the airport, adjacent to the MAC offices on Bundora Parade.

The operating hours for the tower are published in the Enroute Supplement.

Navaids
At present Moorabbin Airport maintains a non-directional beacon (NDB) located on the western side of the airport along second avenue.

This navaid will remain as a large proportion of GA aircraft types use this facility as a primary means of navigation and training.

This navaid has been retained in the Airservices Australia network to provide a back-up to satellite based navigational systems, although many newer aircraft no longer retain the required avionics equipment to use it.

Refuelling

Currently both AVGAS and AVTUR (Jet A1) is available from a range of operators, with both fuel types being distributed by tanker vehicles.  Self serve AVGAS dispensers are also provided.
