More Info


Sustainability is at the forefront of our design brief for Aquila and the use of concrete, steel, glass, and stone will enable a design that blends with the natural landscape.


All lots will be provided with an Electricity connection. Sewerage is a bio cycle system, and solar and battery may be added at anytime.


The beautiful architectural and landscaping design intent is protected by the estates covenants, put in place to protect and grow property investment capital gains.


Q: Do I have to own an aircraft or be a pilot to purchase a block?
A: No.  Aquila Estate is first and foremost a community gated estate and welcomes all.

Q: Is there an Architect included in the purchase?
A: We have included the services of an architectural building designer and project manager to work with you. This service includes the full design of your home from concept to preliminary design stage including a preliminary build budget.  Sit back and let them do all the hard work for you. By arrangement, Goldie Projects can manage your project beyond preliminary design through to construction completion providing an enjoyable and stress free process. (*terms and conditions apply)

Q: Is the airstrip sealed or grass?
A: There are two airstrips.  One is sealed asphalt and the other is grassed.

A: Yes, this property in Yengarie, elevated approximately 160ft above sea level has been carefully chosen to ensure it is well outside any floodplain zones.

Q: Are helicopters permitted?
A: Yes, conditions apply.

Q: Why are block prices so low?
A: Our mission is to make Aquila as affordable as possible and accessible to everyone.  As with all new construction, off plan pricing is offered in the early stages and prices tend to increase as sales and stages sell out.  Aquila is offering an off plan price special for the 1st 20 lots sold with periodic increases as each block is sold

Q: Can I build a house without a hangar?
A: Yes, however the design of the house must have an allowance for a hangar to be built at a later stage and the design must conform to the covenants and by-laws. Get in touch for more info.

Victor spent his earlier years progressing through back breaking tradie ranks in residential and commercial construction to site manager and then construction manager. During this period he volunteered his boots-on-the-ground to various nature conservation campaigns, flying Cessna 210s transporting injured or orphaned wild game to rehabilitation centres – he has very fond memories of this time and continues to do his part in conserving and protecting our natural world. He later specialised a tailored and unique consultancy service as a design manager, project director and lead construction management consultant for government and private developers.

Victor shares his passion for flying with his wife and four children whom are regulars at fly in events across the region. He has built a Vans RV12 with his son, and owns a LSA that he uses to travel to development projects across QLD and NSW. Aquila Estate is an extremely exciting development, of which Victor is driven to create a unique aviation estate never before seen in Australia, for Aquila to set the new benchmark for Airparks and private Flying Clubs across Australia.
