Manning River Aero Club

The Manning River Aero Club was formed in 1960, having transferred its training base from the Old Bar Airstrip to the then new Taree Airport. Initially, training was conducted in the DH-82 Tiger Moth. The club now train pilots in a modern Cessna 172SP aircraft.

We are a member of the Royal Federation of Aero Clubs of Australia, which has a code of reciprocal rights with a network of Aero Clubs that extends throughout Australia. You may also have the opportunity to represent the Club at Light Aircraft Championships which are organised by the Federation and held every year.

The Aero Club is a non-profit making organisation, which means that any surplus funds are re-invested in the Club, its facilities and aeroplanes.
