Canberra Aero Club aims to bring together people with a common interest in aviation in order to enjoy and experience the challenge and freedom of flight as safely as possible. The Club believes that sharing aviation with people from all walks of life not only makes us better pilots but better people too. So come down to the Club and have a look at our aircraft, talk to our members or share a flight with one of our pilots.

Operating since 1938, the Canberra Aero Club is one of the oldest Aero Clubs in Australia. We are situated at Canberra Airport and enjoy being able to fly in both controlled and uncontrolled airspace. We are less than an hour’s flight to the southern NSW coast and close by to the Snowy Mountain ski fields. Flying throughout the wide and scenic spaces of the Murray-Darling Basin is also enjoyed by our member pilots.

The club operates a growing fleet of aircraft available for hire. We try and maintain a fleet that caters across different pilot budgets. With over 100 members, a great location and an increasing fleet of aircraft, we create an ideal environment for members and visitors alike.

Every year the Canberra Aero Club organises four dinner. Reasonably formal, no set agenda, always at a different place. Its a fantastic time for us all to get together and have a meal in a quit place just for club members. We usually get a really good turn out and I cant see why this Wednesday would be any exception. Guests, Partners, potential new members are more than welcome. I'm sure the President John will say a few words about what's been going on and what are plans are for the year. We are planning on having guest speakers from time to time as well. 

A reminder that the Canberra Aero Club will be holding its first club dinner for the year next Wednesday, 25 March 2015, at the Austrian Club, 5 Mountevans Street, Mawson, ACT. http://goo.gl/uVqyVb

Hi All, Friendly request:

 

The cover has just had the Velcro strip repaired around the door section. Its a poor design with fluffy white backing fabric which gets clogged up in the hook side of the Velcro. From now on can we all make an effort please when handling and folding the cover to try and keep the Velcro clear from touching the white backing.
