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.
Hi All, Friendly request:
The cover has just had the Velcro strip repaired around the door section. Its a poor design with fluffy white backing fabric which gets clogged up in the hook side of the Velcro. From now on can we all make an effort please when handling and folding the cover to try and keep the Velcro clear from touching the white backing.
It is with much sadness that I announce the passing of Ian Gillespie, past President, Club Captain and long serving Treasure of the Canberra Aero Club. Ian a friend of many passed away this afternoon. The Club’s sincere condolences go out to Marj and Ian’s family. Ian, I hope you always travel through blue skies.
