We have one Cessna 172 on line – VH-RNX. RNX is a modern 2002 S model and is available for hire and flight instruction.
The four-seat, single-engine Cessna 172 Skyhawk is probably the most popular flight training aircraft in the world. The first production models were delivered in 1957, and it is still in production today; more than 35,000 have been built.
We have a Cessna 182T on line – VH-VMR. VMR is a modern 2003 T model and is available for hire and flight instruction.
The four-seat, single-engine Cessna 182 T is probably the most popular touring aircraft in the world.
RNAC purchased the brand new Archer III – VH-RNN in 2000.

The de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth, was to become the mainstay of Australia’s considerable wartime pilot training effort. This post-war work horse of the aero clubs and aerial work operators is a familiar sight even in the skies today.
RNAC operates a modern Elite AT-11-i synthetic trainer, upgraded with a visuals package providing photo-realistic imagery through a 120⁰ field of view of any operating area within Australia and New Zealand. It is approved by CASA as a Category B device – allowing aeronautical experience credits for PPLs, CPLs, NVFRs, Instrument ratings, IPCs, and IR recency as well as all instrument approach types.
The synthetic trainer can be used for approximately half the hours required for PIRs and IRs as it is an effective way to train at a greatly reduced cost.
