This year, our annual Christmas lunch will be preceded by an AERIAL POKER flying competition.

There will be a briefing for pilots and passengers participating in the competition at 10:00.

The route to be flown (weather permitting) will be Aldinga – Hunt Field – Strathalbyn – Goolwa – Aldinga.  Each person in the aircraft will collect one card at Aldinga prior to departure, one card at each landing point, and a final card on return to Aldinga.  The person with the best poker hand will win a bottle of Aero Club wine.

Lunch will be served at about 12:00 and is free for club members.  A small charge will apply to non-members and guests.


The calendar of events for 2013 will be published on the web site this week.  Please have a look to see what’s in store for next year.


We will start the year with a social day when members are encouraged to bring friends along to enjoy the conviviality of the club and perhaps a scenic flight over the local area.


We will fly in to Kangaroo Island for a barbecue lunch at either American River South or Antechamber Bay.

Fun Flight 2012

Each year the Aldinga Aero Club participates in Fun Flight. Children with various illnesses come along and are taken for Joy Flights by the Aero Club’s pilots and other volunteering pilots from the community. This year 15 pilots flew 57 sorties with over 100 passengers at the Goolwa Aerodrome in South Australia.

Fun Flight

The annual Fun Flight event takes place today at Goolwa. Fun Flight is a charity event where children with health problems are taken on joy flights over the Goolwa area. Family members also get to be part of this event which is a time of fun and enjoyment for those less fortunate than ourselves.

After the event, we will upload some photos of the day.
