Default First Landing at Badgerys Creek

An aircraft has performed an emergency landing at the construction site for Sydney's new airport, five years before it's due to open.

The single-engine aircraft performed a forced landing at the Western Sydney Airport construction site at Badgerys Creek about 9.40am on Thursday.

The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications said it was a training flight with two people on board that experienced a throttle jam issue.

The aircraft was a four-seater Piper Warrior.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority said it was the first landing at the new airport, albeit an unofficial one.

No one was injured in the incident.

The Australian Transport Safety Board will assess the incident later on Thursday but they do not anticipate further investigations being warranted.

The airport is scheduled to open in 2026.

Glad no-one was injured.

I am sure they will get an invoice for landing fees....

Yes someone will have their hand out for money.

We'll be paying to breathe oxygen in no time.

A bit premature, but look what might await the next emergency landing:
