After looking at many places around Melbourne to learn to fly, I instantly decided on the Ballarat Aero Club. It has a very warm and welcoming feel and the instructors actually care! I’ts not just a “sausage factory” for students. I would highly recommend the Club for anyone with an interest in flying.

Ballarat Aero Club is where I learnt to fly and I have been a member for many years. The facilities are great, the aircraft are excellent and there is both RA and GA training. The Club has a friendly atmosphere and most importantly, has outstanding instructors.

I love this Club. The social atmosphere is great and the standard of instruction is excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this club to both learners and licenced pilots
