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, I've been contemplating a small syndicate for a Piper Tomahawk to base in Canberra and potentially put on line, is there a way the club could pop up a notice to gauge interest, only need one or two people for a Tommy as they are cheap but reliable and cost effective, quite an under rated toy really. I guess I'd be looking for one or two, interested at around $10 - $15k depending. just gauging interest at this stage, thanks, any advice would be appreciated, thanks Scotty

Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem they could contact me @ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

As I understand it, if you have upgraded your iPad iOS to the new v8.3 then all Bluetooth external GPS receivers will no longer work. I personally have the BadElf Pro 2200 and wasnt aware this was the case until I was taxiing and OzRunways couldn't get a location fix.

My reading between the lines, if you have a lightening connector iPad then your 2200 GPS is now useless and you have to upgrade to the 2300. 

Be aware and let me know if your also affected.

“Mr Jeff Boyd has been appointed chair of the CASA board for a three-year term.
