We are the Australia & New Zealand Flying Club. Our mission is to deliver one of Infinite Flight’s finest aviation experiences, and to bring pilots down under to show them what Australia & New Zealand has to offer. We operate 3 divisions, ranging from the popular General Aviation sector, to the never before seen Medical Sector. And, all of our divisions allow you to fly when you want, where you want, and what you want.

We were founded by @AviationMad in June 2018, and a couple of months later we were IFVARB approved. We have recently been in a re-construction period, making changes to how we operate, for long term benefit. Now, we are back, and better than ever before!

We operate on a 3 division system. These 3 divisions gives pilots the options to fly various types of aircraft, ranging from the SR22 to the Cessna Citation X.

It’s basically accepted that in IF, if you want to fly GA, you go to an airport that airliners also operate from, as they’re the only ones that are edited to a workable standard. Not anymore! With our GA division you get to experience real GA , with a curated list of GA airports in Australia & New Zealand released each week. You could find yourself anywhere from Katherine in the outback Northern Territory to Queenstown’s GA airport that you probably didn’t even know existed.

The General Aviation division consists of 5 aircraft types, which are the C172, C208, Xcub, SR22 & TBM 930.

Corporate aviation is very appealing to many aspiring pilots. A flexible schedule, short and long haul flying and flying very nice aircraft indeed. With our Corporate Division, you get all of these. You could be flying anything from a TBM to a BBJ anywhere in Australia or New Zealand, transporting VIPs.

A scenario created especially for Corporate pilots will be released every week, giving pilots the chance to explore new destinations, while having fun at the same time.

The Corporate division consists of 5 aircraft types, which are the 737-700 BBJ, 737-900 BBJ, Cessna Citation X, A318 ACJ and the TBM 930.

One of the least common sectors of aviation, but still a great one! Emulating the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service (Australia) and New Zealand Air Ambulance, you could find yourself anywhere from Sydney Kingsford Smith to Uluru, to the middle of nowhere on a dirt strip you never knew existed. There is never a dull moment in this division.

The Medical division consists of 2 aircraft types, which are the TBM 930, and the Cessna Citation X.

We are looking for dedicated members of the community that would be willing to apply for a staff position at AUNZFC. Currently, every position (besides CEO) is open. If you would like to apply to become a staff member, please fill out the application form, which can be found here.

I have a 1:400 scale model airport with over 100 model planes. I’m always open for a chat, so if you want to talk, feel free to shoot me a DM! See you around!

G’day my name’s Toby. I’m the head of the corporate division. I’ve been in love with aviation ever since I went on my first flight when I was about 4. If you ever need a hand, or want to chat, feel free to message me!


Head of Medical - Vacant


We are extremely proud and excited to be working together with the Qantas Virtual Group! Qantas Virtual is Infinite Flight’s oldest VA, and has been leading for over 7 years. It is one of the strongest brands in the community, and has built a reputation that nobody else can beat.

Our partnership with QVG allows all of our pilots to experience one of the largest sectors of aviation in Australia & New Zealand; Commercial aviation. Every pilot that joins AUNZFC will be invited to also join QVG, and will be able to fly both their aircraft, and codeshare aircraft.

This will also work in vice-versa. All QVG pilots will be invited to join AUNZFC, which gives them access to 3 more types of flying (General Aviation, Corporate & Medical). This partnership will allow both QVG & AUNZFC to offer one of the most diverse and unique flying experiences out there.

Our new website will also be relocated to the Qantas Virtual website, allowing us to streamline our operations.

Check out their thread here, and their Instagram page here. Their website is available here.

We use slack as our main form of communication at AUNZFC. Slack is a communication services used by many major VA’s & VO’s, which offers an easy to use interface, customisation and more. All pilots that join AUNZFC will receive an invite to our Slack workspace, which is the perfect place to organise group flights, socialise and more!


What are you waiting for?

Join today! Offering one of the most diverse flying experiences out there, there is sure to be something you’ll like at AUNZFC. We look forward to seeing you in our slack!
