Our Team

The Best in the Business

The Sunshine Coast Aero Club is the focal point for recreational flying in SE Queensland and is the only ‘not for profit’ RAAus and CASA approved Flight Training Facility on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. The Club was first established in 1959. Since then both the airport and the club have grown substantially.
