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.

Hi all,

See you all tomorrow/tonight from 6pm at Civic Pub on Lonsdale Street in Braddon for monthly Thursday night drinks. T-Bone steak dinners are on special for $15. 

We have brand new tie downs for both RRJ and OHR. See pics. Gone are the days of random bits and pieces of bailing twine and old rope someone found on the side of the road. We have nice new tie downs and we'd like to keep them looking and working well. 

Also it's a timely reminder to all pilots to always check the state of the Master Switch when you finish with an aircraft. We've had a few occurrences recently of Master Switches being left on and flat batteries for the next pilot. No-one wants to arrive for a flight and find a completely dead flat battery because a master switch was left on.

Starting now, the Aero Club would like to inform / remind all pilots, to always leave the Beacon/Anti Collision light switched on in all aircraft at all time. The idea being that if the beacon is on, hopefully it reminds you or others as a last resort that the Master is on. I've attached pics of how we expect the Beacon switches to be left and found for every flight.

Hi All
 
We succeeded with our aircraft cleaning as planned on Saturday. Although Rae's offer of raisin toast and tea/coffee couldn't quite entice members to turn up in numbers, a handful [Simon, Steven, Daniel and Tony] came to help us clean and polish OHR and MUW. 
 
We discovered the Master Switch had been left on in MUW and as such we now have a plane offline until we can get the battery charged again. The board is going to discuss how we stop this from happening in the future. 
 
The BBQ today was a great time had by all. We had about 30 or more people turn up. Jenny flew down from Cowra in a Brumby 610. Many members had the opportunity to look over it and see what Light Sport Aircraft is all about, VH registered or not.  Big thank-you to all those that helped make the BBQ a success.
 
Remember to join us this Thursday the 5th of March at 6pm for our "first Thursday of the month drinks". We've had a change of venue (interested in feedback - Olims got too noisy) to Civic Pub on Lonsdale in Braddon.
