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.

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.

A group of parents in the Australian Air League here in Canberra, who have Sons learning to fly, are forming an aircraft syndicate to purchase a Cessna 152 and are looking for more syndicate members. An immaculate/pristine 152 has been identified and five (5) interested syndicate owners have already indicated their participation. To make the syndicate cost effective, the ideal number of owners would be between 6 to 8 members so we are interested in another member or two. The plane is going to be hangared in Temora with 3 runways to choose from, no landing fees and only 2 hours from Canberra. Initial syndicate membership is expected to cost between $8K to $6K depending on final member numbers. This is an ideal opportunity for someone to learn to fly in their own aircraft, safely and cheaply. If you, or someone you know, might be interested in joining the syndicate please contact Glen McNamara for further information on 0412571503 or email him at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Check out this photo - one of the slickest 152's I've ever seen.

Just a reminder that AOPA has invited all members and aviators to a seminar this Sat (7th Feb).  Quite a variety of speakers from AvPlan to CASA, so should be worth attending.

See flyer for details on registering.

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

Although we are not the Roulettes, or even the Poulettes, our formation team is having a bit of fun as a group of 4, and Phil Allen and his daughter, Micah, have captured a fair bit of it from their position at the back of the diamond.

Photos courtesy of Phill Allen:

“I've just posted the latest of Micah's photos on our photo server at http://www.allen.net.au/photo.  Just click on the Formation Flying album.  The folders are labelled with the date of our flights, so today's is 20131214.”

Our last outing was to Polo flat, for a very pleasant BBQ with the folks down there.
