Welcome to University Flying Club (UFC) Website.
Who are we and what do we do?
- We are a not-for-profit flying club
- We own an aircraft and provide our members with affordable Private Aircraft Hire for Flight Training and Recreational use out of Jandakot Airport Western Australia
- We promote the sport of General Aviation in Western Australia
- We aim to offer the most affordable method for students to enter the aviation industry
A bit more about the Club
- We are based at Jandakot Airport just South of the Perth CBD
- UFC is one of WA’s oldest flying clubs and has been in operation for over 50 years
- The club aircraft is available for hire by members for private recreational use and training purposes (members can train for their Private Pilot’s Licence and Recreational Pilots Licence)
- We are not an exclusive club – all pilots and aviation enthusiasts are welcome to join.
- Our club is run by a small group of friendly, supportive, committed volunteers and offers more of a social “Club” feel for those wanting to get more out of their aviation experience than just time in the classroom.
- We participate in events and regularly attend fly-ins and events with other WA Flying and Aviation Clubs
- We meet monthly to discuss club business and socialise with club members
- we also run a flight-sharing mailing list so club members can organise flying trips with other members.
- You don’t need to be a University Student to join everyone is welcome.
- If you’d like to join the club you can find more information here: Join Uni Flying Club
About our Aircraft
- Our Aircraft is a 2011 model PiperSport – callsign VH-EZT
- Our PiperSport is equipped with modern digital avionics (two 7″ LCD panels) and a central large-screen Garmin GPS along with backup analogue instruments
- The club aircraft is perfect for flight training and cross-country or recreational private aircraft hire
- EZTs modern engine allows it to achieve around 50% better fuel consumption compared to traditional aircraft whilst cruising at the same speed, this is one of the reasons we are able to provide such great hire rates to our members
- Our aircraft’s excellent economy, range, reliability, fun sporty performance, and modern features make it the ideal aircraft for training and private recreational aviation
- Check out Photos and Videos of our aircraft in action
