The Society offers an extensive Social Program with events and fly away’s to many locations across Australia including overseas to Noumea, New Zealand and PNG. Previous flyaways have included Tasmania, the Kimberly, North Queensland, Central Australia, North Queensland, South Australia, the Sapphire Coast, the Gold Coast, Northern Territory and the West Coast to name a few. These flyaways provide opportunities to see and stay in parts of Australia that few people see.

They also enable a host of information in respect airstrips, accommodation and activities to be gathered from the many members who have flown extensively across Australia.

In addition, a maintenance seminar for LAMEs on Beechcraft piston maintenance was held in Wagga in March 2023. 

We have also participated in unique events such as the 50 aircraft formation that flew over RAAF base Point Cook on its 100th anniversary - see RAAF flight .
