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, extensive facilities, great location and an increasing fleet of aircraft, we create an ideal environment for members and visitors alike.
As many of you may be aware the CAC supports the Canberra Air League Squadron, which promotes and teaches young boys aged 8-18 all about aviation and even supports them in achieving their pilots licence. The Air League has asked CAC to publicise the following opportunity.

Our intrepid friends Les and Marg completed a fly-away, over the xmas period, to "the desert and the sea". Like most fly-aways, it was a compromise. Marg wanted to visit coastal townships and Les was keen on outback sights. Their Cherokee 180 eventually took them to places like Rawnlsley Park (near Wilpena Pound), Lake Acraman, Ceduna and Streaky Bay - Satisfying both their ambitions.
Attached is an article (for pilots and non-pilots alike) written by Les Sullivan about their trip, to perhaps inspire your next trip - or just to make us all jealous! Click on the following link: .a-flight-to-the-desert-and-the-sea_opt6.pdf
