The Rockhampton Model Aero Club was officially inaugurated on Friday the 06/12/1947. However, the history of our club can be traced back to winter 1936 and to Don J. Millroy, essentially the clubs first member. The clubs history has been expertly compiled by club stalwart and life member Hubert de Chastel and is supported by Newspaper articles and Photographs. This publication, which not only documents our clubs history, also provides a window into the past history of our district and can be obtained from Hubert. In the past the club utilised several flying fields. However, in 1978 the organisation procured land on River Road and established our permanent home “Gavial Creek”. Our club compound includes a large toilet block, camping area, electricity, barbecue area, covered pit and spectator areas. Irrigated flying facilities include main and cross strips (approx.150m long each), pylon circuit and 2 control line circles. Flying facilities are used by our members throughout the year and provide a safe flying venue recognised by our State and National Associations as well as the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia (CASA). The club is fortunate to have skilled Instructors available to provide expert training and advice for beginners and advanced flyers alike. A club meeting is held every month and a monthly newsletter is published to keep our members up to date with the latest club matters. The club welcomes spectators and interested members of the public.
