  • Flying sounds hard. Can I really do it?
    You might think that becoming a pilot is beyond your capabilities, however, we believe that anyone with reasonable aptitude and the commitment to make a small investment, can become a private pilot. The joy of flight and piloting an aircraft is a very achievable goal for most people and quite affordable.
  • Location
    Jindabyne Randall Community Aerodrome is situated on Tinworth Drive off the Barry Way (opposite the Sport & Rec Facility). There are no food outlets on site and it is recommended that all visitors bring their own as required. Please note that the airfield is not attended on a regular basis. It is important for visitors/students to phone well in advance if they are planning on visiting Alpine Aviation Australia. Weather (wind and/or cloud/precipitation) plays a critical role in any decision as to whether it is safe to fly. To avoid disappointment and unnecessary travel, please contact Alpine Aviation Australia before coming to the airfield.
  • What to Wear
