Welcome to the website of Australian Aviation Club. 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.
Future lunch dates for 2018, speaker details and topics are as follows:
Friday 24 August – Lunch presentation to the RAAF Staff College Association by Doug Hurst – ‘The Far East Air Force 1949-1971’. Doug is a noted historian and prolific author whose works include ‘Magpies in Vietnam’ and ‘The forgotten few – 77 RAAF Squadron in Korea’. With a number of Australian Aviation Club members having missed this excellent presentation when it was delivered to the Club in 2017, the RAAF Staff College Association welcomes AAC members to attend their lunch at the Royal Canberra Golf Club and catch up on Doug’s presentation. Please register your attendance via the attached registration form noting payment in advance by cheque or bank transfer. (Please identify yourself as an AAC member where the nomination form asks for Course Number.)
