Dhule Airport (IATA: DHL, ICAO: VA53) is located at Gondur area in Dhule, Maharashtra, India. This airstrip was constructed in 1974 by the Public Works Department[2] and was transferred to the Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) after its formation in 2002.[3] The Bombay Flying Club leased the airstrip from the MADC and shifted its training operations here in 2009 to avoid the congested air-space of Mumbai.[4]

A 150 metre long taxiway connects the runway to a small terminal building and a hangar. Night landing facility is now available with runway lights and an ATC tower. Commercial operations will be starting soon in the coming future. Frequency in use 123.45 MHz
