Victoria’s capital city, Melbourne (often called “the garden city”) is positioned at the top of Port Phillip Bay in Australia’s south-east. Founded in 1835 by John Batman and John Pascoe Fawkner, Melbourne has grown to become a thriving financial and business centre and second largest city in Australia. It is renowned for its cultural and sporting events and many fine restaurants. It is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city with its people originating from many parts of the world.
Royal Victorian Aero Club is headquartered at Moorabbin Airport, a busy general aviation airfield some 25 kilometres south of the central business district (CBD). RVAC is easily accessible by public transport, car, or even bicycle. Moorabbin has multiple sealed runways, a control tower and associated controlled airspace and is an ideal location in which to learn to fly. RVAC has a range of aircraft available, from single engine trainers through to quite complex twin-engined aircraft, plus a flight simulator certified for instrument flight training.
