The Benalla Aeroclub is a collective of flight enthusiasts operating out of the Benalla airport since 2013. The club has a range of activities and services including:
"Learning to fly had always been a dream of mine and through the Benalla Aeroclub I could make it a reality. My instructor was Ron Olson who I found to be very thorough especially when it came to airmanship. I will always remember the day Ron got out of the plane and said 'Ok I’ve had enough, you can go by yourself this time'.
That first solo flight was an amazing feeling. The take off went well then on the downwind leg I remember thinking, now I just have to get this thing back on the ground. Pleased to say the landing was ok and as I taxied back to Ron, I couldn’t get the smile off my face."
