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.

It is with sadness the Club announces the passing of past Club President (1973-76) and club captain (1976-77) Jim Young.  

Jim passed away on Friday 10th July 2015 with his family in Brisbane after a brief illness.  He was convalescing in Brisbane after he fractured his hip following a fall at his home in Canberra.  Jim was 91 years old.

Jim was an active flying member well into the 1990s. Unfortunately he was unable to attend the Club’s 75th anniversary dinner due to his frailty.

 

Some of you may recall a mid-air accident in January 1978 while Jim was flying formation in one of two piper warriors near Canberra.  All concerned walked away unharmed.  Further information of this accident will be forthcoming in following weeks.
