The Aero Club


The Darling Downs Aero Club has provided professional pilot training since 1946, training thousands of recreational and commercial pilots. The Club has built a reputation based on practical flying training, empathy and flexibility, focusing on your individual needs. Our mission is to provide the highest quality aviation training available. All flight training is logged in aircraft, as opposed to the use of flight simulators. We believe a hands on approach provides the best testing ground for pilots of the future

We will work with you to provide the skills needed to achieve your goals.

DDAC is not simply a flying school, it is also a not for profit club.  Members are part of an aviation community and enjoy a number of social events including monthly BBQ lunch and flying competitions.  Student pilots are welcome to participate in these club fun days, as they will be flying with one of our friendly instructors.  Typical fun days include streamer cutting, flour bombing and spot landing competitions.

The 'Touch and Go Bar' is open every Friday night, giving members the opportunity to socialise and talk about their latest flying adventure while watching the sun set over the airport.

The Aero Club also holds regular evening BBQs followed by a night flying experience, and passenger seats are often available for friends and family wishing to see the lights of Toowoomba from the air.

Members can privately hire our aircraft at very competitive rates, and fly-aways encourage pilots to keep their flying skills current while enjoying a trip with friends.

Our flying members are also entitled to 30 minutes of free flight instruction every 6 months - only the aircraft hire fee is payable.
