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.
Pencil in the last Wednesday of each month for a Canberra Aero Club Pilot Night. Proposed topics for discussion include: Engine Monitors ‘101’, Changing Spark Plugs and other pilot-performed maintenance, Flight Planning Software and visits to the Australian Rescue Coordination Centre. The upcoming topics are:
30 April 14 - Engine Monitors ‘101’. 6pm onwards at the Gate Palace.
28 May 14 - Changing Spark Plugs. Meet at 6pm at the Gate Palace.
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.
