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.

Changes to the CAC Aircraft Hire Agreement 

As part of the Boards regular review of the aircraft hire terms and condition there are a few minor changes to the current agreement we would like to draw your attention to.  Please note that when first signing the agreement, all flying members agree to keep current with any changes to this hire agreement.  Having said that, the club will not make changes to the agreement without notifying all members via email and posting a notice on the web site forum.

List of Changes;

(a) Modified hire rate for VH-OHR to $200/hour tacho

(b) Added a note for each applicable aircraft (VH-OHR, VH-MUW, VH-RRJ) that they are now available to CASA RPL licence holders.

Happy New Year - Board News

On behalf of the CAC Board, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year and trust everyone had a safe and happy xmas.

Following the AGM last year we have a slightly different Board with some new members and some of the old suspects.  Last year we saw new aircraft added for members to access and we had an influx of new members, young, old, experienced and newly minted.  The club held a number of successful dinners and flying events, although not as many as we would have liked, but life often gets in the road.

We have a number of things planned for this year with quarterly dinners, some fly aways, more formation work and hopefully we can have some representation at the ALACS.  Avalon is fast approaching, which usually draws a number of our members down to Melbourne to count some rivets and salivate over some nice kit.

We hope to finish (and this is my fault) an assessment on the future for MUW, with SIDs still outstanding and the costs involved the Club needs to make a call on if we keep her or replace her with a newer, but more expensive C172.  We are always working on the maintenance and support of the fleet and try to keep the u/s times to a minimum so there is always something to fly when the weather turns good.  

Clinton McKenzie will be running some education sessions again this year and I know that a 50 hourly for OHR is due and also DWW soon after, so there is an opportunity for pilots to get their hands dirty and swap some filters and plugs.
