The club in the early years had an emphasis on training but in the present day also has a strong social club that provides aircraft to members for hire at the lowest possible rates. Members may use club aircraft for private use and to further their flying training through one of the flying schools at Sunshine Coast Airport. Memberships are a mixture of social members and flying members. Being a flying member of the club is like owning shares of an aircraft without having to incur the direct maintenance costs that go with ownership.
At present the club has a membership base of around 130 financial members and has excellent facilities in the form of a top class clubroom and commercial kitchen, attractive gardens and well-finished concrete car park, large clean hanger and 2 immaculate aircraft.
Activities include Friday Night dinners, annual functions, fly-aways, members meetings and the annual Sunshine Coast Air Rally.
The Sunshine Coast Aero Club also caters for other clubs fly-ins and can organise function rooms for presentation nights etc.
The Sunshine Coast Aero Club is proof that if you get a few people with a common goal and pulling in the same direction, remarkable things can be achieved.
