You'll Love It Here, The Royal Victorian Aero Club



The Royal Victorian Aero Club, (also known as RVAC and Royal Vic), is one of the oldest flying clubs in Australia. It was established in 1914, just a few years after the Wright brothers' historic first flight in 1903. The club's founding members were a group of aviation enthusiasts who were passionate about the new and exciting field of aviation. And we’re proud to carry on our lineage.

Don't just take our word for it

“I feel privileged to be involved with the Royal Victorian Aero Club, through their Young Eagles program, in sharing my passion for aviation with young Australians. It is heartening to see a flying club pro-actively involve young people in their activities, enabling them to gain first hand experience in the exciting world that is aviation.”
