The Air Activity Centre has been operating since 1972. Tens of thousands of young Australians have safely enjoyed our exciting aviation programs. Our volunteer team from the Air Activity Centre will do their best to make your day a highlight for the year. We combine the fun and thrill of flying with Cub Scout and/or Scout Target Badge achievement.

The Air Activity Centre is a Scouting initiative, completely supported by volunteers. This is the only centre of its kind in Australia. As a result, our programs are priced from $75.00 per person. This represents the best value for money to experience real flying!

The volunteer staff at the Air Activity Centre run courses tailored to each age group. This allows all members to experience aviation in a fun, interactive and safe environment. In partnership with Altocap Flight School, Scout aircraft are available for flying training. We help Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts, Guides, Leaders and even parents achieve their dream to "learn to fly".
