RA in Canberra


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I'm probably going to be spending 2-4 weeks in Canberra over the summer. I'd like to fly on weekends over that time if possible.


Are there any RA airports in/close to Canberra city with a flying school where I could book a few lessons (just circuits or whatever)? I'd just like to be able to fly if possible :)


This is probably a silly question, but are there any issues with just having a few lessons at a different school to usual? Are there any issues with training records or logbooks or anything?


Any help would be great.

Hi Darky.


The closest is Goulburn (110k north), Cooma (110k south), Moruya (170k east), Adaminaby (170k south) or Tumut (200k west by road - only 60 by air).


There's no RA flying in Canberra.


There should be no issues in taking a few lessons with someone else. It can be vey useful to get a different teaching approach and change of scenery.


You might be able to get a Cheetah experience while you're here if you like. It's highly recommended.:cool_shades:

I may well take you up on your offer! :) First just have to organise if and when I'll actually be getting to Canberra.


Also, since you fly out of Goulburn, do you know of any schools there that I could book a lesson at if I get to Canberra?

Thanks volksy :) I'll email them once I know what I'm doing. What I'm hoping (if I go to Canberra) is on one weekend to book a lesson at Goulburn and, if Slarti's kind offer is still open, maybe have a fly with him before/afterwards if he can manage it. Now I just need to see if I'll actually be getting to Canberra!

Hey guys,


Finally it's all confirmed (well, pretty much anyway) - I'm going to be in Canberra from 21st Feb - 12th March. So now it's time to plan my flying! (always the most important point)


I'll have to send Teraya an email and see if I can work something out there...by the look of it on google maps, Goulburn has a sealed runway, so it should be a good experience :)


Slarti, is your kind offer of a ride in the Cheetah still open? 025_blush.gif.9304aaf8465a2b6ab5171f41c5565775.gif


And when I've organised this important part of my trip, I should probably start looking into those other pesky things like accommodation 006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif

Slarti, I may have said this before but I think the Cheetah is one fine looking aircraft, you deserve much success with it.


Darky , are you aware that Slartis' other nick name is 'chester the molester' !!!!high_5.gif.95ee4a47273086425b8f5a9eab7ee024.gif :patch:008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif
