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.

The Canberra Airport Open Day is on again this year - Sunday 3 April 2016, 0930-1330.

Your club will again supply a few aircraft for viewing by the general public and we are looking for some volunteers to help out on the day.

If you can spare sometime during the day and can done your best aviation gear, then we would welcome you help.

We generally have MUW open for the public to look through and will do the same again for other air club aircraft. So we need helper/pilots who can talk about the aircraft and the club.

It is our aim to have 2 people to any aircraft thetas "open" - 1 to talk and the other to help with queues, other enquiries, etc.
