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.

SAFETY ALERT!

To minimise the risk of runway incursions, please implement the following: 

  • Plan your taxi route for arrival and departure as carefully as the 
  • airborne element of your flight; 
  •  Ensure that you understand standard airfield markings; 
  •  Ensure that you have a specific clearance for a specific runway; 
  •  Treat all runways as active until you confirm they are not; 
  •  Look and check before you enter any runway, even if you have 
  • an ATC clearance; 
  •  If you are unsure, ask ATC
