We consider properties of semi-classical orthogonal polynomials with respect to the generalised Airy weight \[\omega(x;t,\lambda)=x^{\lambda}\exp\left(-\tfrac13x^3+tx\right),\qquad x\in \mathbb{R}^+\] with parameters $\lambda>-1$ and $t\in \mathbb{R}$. We also investigate the zeros and recurrence coefficients of the polynomials. The generalised sextic Freud weight \[\omega(x;t,\lambda)=|x|^{2\lambda+1}\exp\left(-x^6+tx^2\right), \qquad x\in \mathbb{R}\] arises from a symmetrisation of the generalised Airy weight and we study analogous properties of the polynomials orthogonal with respect to this weight.
