Dhule Airport (ICAO: VA53) is located at Gondur village near 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. No navigational aids nor night landing facilities are available on the airstrip.
