Point Cook Flying Club and Others

The Point Cook Flying Club has Cessna 150, Cessna 172, and Cessna 182 aircraft in addition to a Cirrus SR20, a Cirrus SR22 and a Piper PA28-180 based on Point Cook.
The club operates mostly “come and go” operations, meaning members will leave and return to the airfield same day or sometime in the future.  They also conduct training operations to maintain proficiency levels

Other aircraft on base include a Cessna 152 and a Cessna 172. These aircraft are technically not part of the flying club but are parked with the club aircraft.
