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.

LIVEATC - Can you help?

Hello everyone. I noticed on the weekend that the liveatc.net website feed for Canberra has been offline for a few months now. I'm assuming the last feeder has moved away or something. 

This is a fantastic facility to listen to near live audio, and also go back and listen to recordings of previous events. Its completely free and crowd-sourced. 

"LiveATC provides many of the major airport feeds on the network but most of the feeds are provided by volunteers. For this reason we sometimes have only limited control over where (and when) new feeds come online."

"If you know of anyone in your area of interest who might be interested in becoming a feed provider then please have them contact us . We will work with them to help get them online. "

The requirements for a feed provider are as follows: 

- Be located somewhat close to the airport (within 15mi/24km) 
- Have "always on" Internet connection (but feed uses only 16kbps) 
- Have an external or attic antenna (for optimum reception, optional) 
- Have audio cable to connect scanner to PC sound card 
- Have computer w/ spare sound card (Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux) 

Is anyone interested/able in getting this service up and running again. If so please look at the following links, or contact me directly and together we can make it happen.
