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.

Les Sullivan our intrepid Club Captain has crossed over to the other side to row his home built boat “backwards” down the Murray River from Wagga to the Murray River mouth in South Australia.

Follow his progress along the way via the blog http://rowtomurraymouth.blogspot.com.au/

If you want to lose weight quickly, he will lend you his boat and a small amount of food.  He lost 8 kgs between Boundary Bend and Mildura in about 2 weeks..so munch for my 5:2 diet...

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.
