The Ballarat Advantage
Ballarat Aero Club does NOT advertise learning to fly for a fixed number of hours, or quote unrealistic total costs, as these can vary with many factors. Our programs are tailored to each individual student to provide them with the best possible outcome for the the lowest possible cost.

Duty Pilots Needed
One of the more enjoyable tasks at the Ballarat Aero Club is acting as the Duty Pilot on a Saturday or Sunday. The Duty Pilot's role is to facilitate the smooth running of the office and hangar over the weekends, with the added bonus of meeting visitors from Ballarat, and from all over Australia. The Club shows it's appreciation to the Duty Pilots by crediting their Club account with a small amount for their day's work. We're always looking for new volunteers for Duty Pilots, so if you feel you can volunteer your time then contact Len Kennedy on 03 5339 1742...
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.
