As you may notice, the fuel costs at YSCB have risen substantially over the last few months. Our club has been maintaining the rates of the fleet as they are now for some years so as for our members to be able to enjoy probably one of the best hire rates in the country. However, we need to take into account the sustainability of our club in the long run as well while providing the services our members deserve. Just to put things in perspective, the current rate for MUW was set when the fuel price was sub $2 at YSCB at least about four years ago. Our pride and joy has been around since the 70s and isn’t getting any younger and therefore more maintenance has been required over the recent years.
Hence, the Board of the Canberra Aero Club has recently undertaken a review of the current rates of the fleet while factoring in fuel price and maintenance cost increases.
Consequently effective 1 Nov 2018, the following revised rates apply. Please also take note of the increase of the landing fee from $12.5 at YSCB to a flat $15 to compensate for the losses incurred due to air services charges.
