The Rockhampton Aero Club is located on the General Aviation (GA) side of Rockhampton Airport with the aero club building situated on the General Aviation access road which is off Canoona Road.
Aero Club was first formed in 1930 as Rockhampton Aerial Services and started flight training with a de Havilland Gypsy Moth. Following a period of inactivity during the Second World War, the club was reformed in 1947 and purchased surplus Tiger Moths in 1951.
Today, the club operates a fleet of single and twin-engined aircraft in a variety of roles which includes flying training, general air charter, scenic flights, search and rescue and aerial advertising.
Operating from of a number of buildings since it's inception, the aero club moved into its current premises in 2003 and it is worth noting for enthusiasts that on the first Friday of each month commencing
at 5pm, the club holds a BBQ giving people the chance to chat with the local pilots, instructors and committee members.
