Air Queensland

With the recent closure of Hinkler Flying School, and flying training no longer provided by Bundaberg Aero Club, Queensland based flying training school and charter company - Air Queensland - have decided to expand their operations at Redcliffe and Caloundra to include Bundaberg in an effort to provide local student pilots, and licensed pilots, an avenue to continue flying at the rum city. 

In conjunction with the Bundaberg Aero Club, Air Queensland is now providing flying training (incl. RA-Aus) and private aircraft hire at Bundaberg Airport, however, aniticipate to ramp-up local operations in January 2017, which will include moving into the Bundaberg Aero Club building, and relocating additional aircraft to the city. 

While finer detail is still being determined, and more information will be released in due time, it is expected Air Queensland will provide the 'flying' element, and Bundaberg Aero Club manage the 'social' aspect, of the joint venture.  

Of interest, Air Queensland operates a variety of RA-Aus and VH registered single and twin-engine aircraft including (but not limited too) Sling, Tecnam, Jabiru, Cessna and Piper aircraft.

Additionally, more information about flying training and private aircraft hire at Bundaberg can be obtained by either forwarding an email to : or ringing Trevor Fish on (07) 4156 1075.
