The best days to visit the BMAC Crace  flying field are Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday – as long as the weather is fine and the winds are light.  Check the WEATHER AT THE FIELD section to the right of the menu options.  Click the image to bring up a larger view of the field to see the prevailing conditions.

Canberra’s weather is usually cooperative so most days are suitable, if a little chilly in Winter. If you’ve never been involved in the sport, or are looking to get back into it after a break, please do pay us a visit – there should be plenty of people able to point you in the right direction.

Flight instruction takes place mostly on Saturday mornings, but availability depends on how many other students are currently undergoing instruction. however; if you are available during the week there a number of qualified instructor willing to assist. Check with the club Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) for availability of flight instruction.

If you haven’t flown before, the best thing to do is visit the field or get in touch with our CFI or Committee Member (President or Secretary) before you join.  See General Inquiries below for contact details.
