Welcome to the Australian Aviation Club website.   The aim of the Club is to provide a meeting place and a social club for people interested in both civil and military aviation and to promote understanding between persons engaged or previously engaged in the business of aviation.

New members are always very welcome.   Nominations for membership can be made in writing and submitted by post to the Secretary via the addresses shown on the AAC Membership application form.

Australian Aviation Club members and their invited guests meet on the last Thursday of each month from February to October for a luncheon meeting at the National Press Club of Australia.   The luncheon charge is $50 per person.
