Riverland Sport Aviation is a flying club based at Renmark, South Australia. The Riverland is an excellent area for flying, with good weather, lots of room and few airspace restrictions.
The club owns and hires a Jabiru, which is registered with Recreational Aviation Australia. Many members own their own aircraft, some with GA (General Aviation) registration.
News, Dec 2015: The club has just replaced the J230 with a newer J170C.
What we do
As well as offering the Jabiru for hire-and-fly, the club organises social functions. The club breakfasts on the third Sunday of each month are a popular event. Other events include club social dinners, seminars and fly-ins: members hear about these in the club email messages.
RSA does not now offer flying training. Tim Laidler operates Riverland Flight Training (based nearby in Berri). Tim can train new pilots and endorse qualified pilots to fly our aircraft.
RSA is no longer active in gliding, even though the club's registered name is still "Renmark Gliding Club Inc.".
