Royal Aero Club of Western Australia
The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia is one of Australia’s largest flying training organisations with over 30 aircraft and qualified Flight Instructors. From humble beginnings in 1929, the organisation has grown to become one of Australia’s most experienced and highly respected training schools. Royal Aero Club graduates can be found in all areas of aviation, including Qantas, Virgin Blue, Cathay Pacific, Skywest, Skippers Aviation and the Royal Australian Air Force.
Over its long history, the Royal Aero Club has built a reputation for excellence because of its professional approach to flying; a reputation that is maintained in all its activities. Further we are committed to ensuring graduates are not only professional pilots, but are employable pilots. We do not compromise on safety with training and produce students with skills and knowledge above the Civil Aviation Safety Authority requirements. It is our aim to produce the safest pilots available to the International Aviation Industry.
The Club was established by Australian aviation pioneers and is one of the largest of its kind in the world. It has trained many pilots since its inception and was a major training centre for Australian military pilots during WWII. Many Club graduates have made historic contributions to general, commercial and military aviation. Indeed, Club graduates are to be found in regional, national and international airlines throughout the world!
The Club has made and continues to make major contributions to the maintenance of high standards of professionalism and safety in pilot training. Proudly celebrating 90 years in aviation in 2019, the Club has also been a place where members and people associated with flying can meet, discuss and enjoy the camaraderie and spirit of aviation.
Whether you are beginning your aviation journey or require advanced cockpit flight training, the Royal Aero Club has a solution to help you. You can learn to fly with us in Perth, at Jandakot Airport and also within the southwest, at Murrayfield Airport, Mandurah (a short 45min drive on the Forrest Highway from Bunbury).
