    Membership of the Redcliffe Aero Club offers many benefits.  Firstly, Redcliffe Aero Club has a proud history of training pilots to all licence levels for the past 45 years. Many of our past Instructors and Commercial Students are today flying with major airlines all around the world!

    Our standards are high, our rates encourage people to fly and our aircraft are second to none in quality – After all, we are a Not-for-profit (NFP) Organisation and must use all profit generated towards bettering the Club and it’s facilities. That means better aircraft, better maintenance standards, better member facilities and more Club activities.

    Membership for student

    As a member, you have the opportunity to train at some of the cheapest rates in South East Queensland in late-model, quality aircraft, while at the same time receiving what we believe is the highest quality of pilot training available. A very high standard of training by dedicated and professional full time instructors will take you from zero hours to your goal at a pace that suits your needs.

    Membership for Pilot

    Licenced members also gain discounted hire rates based on aircraft Tacho time (on most aircraft), essentially meaning you don’t have to pay for taxiing time! We have a broad range of aircraft including a variety of high wing and low wing types which are all maintained to a high standard.  There is no distinction between private hire members (qualified pilots) and members undergoing training (student pilots), each are equally members with equal opportunity to access Club assets.
