Membership of the AAC- QLD
The Australian Aerobatic Club and the State Chapters provide the knowledge, skills, discipline and support all pilots need to fly increasingly complex aerobatic routines in a competitive and supportive club environment.
Rob Crass – AAC-QLD President
You most likely may have as many questions for us as we do for you, like, are you a licenced pilot? Have you an aerobatic endorsement? Are you a student pilot? Are you thinking about getting your pilots licence, maybe enquiring about our social membership, or is judging your interest?
If so, get in touch with us by going to our Contact Page and either email or phone us. There is an affiliation drop down on that page with a list of local flying schools who can help with your initial aerobatic endorsement which takes around 5 -10 hours depending on your experience and ability. Once obtained, we can further assist you with training and coaching. Later on, low level endorsements are available as you progress through the categories as well as judging courses for pilots and non – pilots.
We have three tiers of membership
AAC National & QLD Chapter Full Membership
This membership allows you to fly and compete at Chapter events and Championships, both in Queensland and throughout Australia with other AAC Chapters. It also allows you to vote at meetings, and also includes FAI Membership.
AAC QLD Chapter Full Membership
As a Full Member of the Queensland Chapter, you are entitled to all rights as a Member except for flying. You may Judge at Chapter events, hold a Committee position and vote at meetings. This membership option does not include AAC National or FAI membership so you are unable to partake in the flying activities. To fly you need to join as Full AAC National & QLD Chapter Members.
AAC QLD Chapter Social Membership
QLD Social Membership is for non-flying aerobatic enthusiasts wishing to be involved with the sport. Family and friends of competitors and fans who join as a Social Member will be kept informed of club activities and invited to participate on club days.
Please Note: To fly at or use the facilities at Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield (WBMA) regularly or frequently, it is necessary to join the Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield Association in addition to the Australian Aerobatic Club. Membership details of WBMA and application forms are available from the WBMA website.
