Welcome to the Air Adventure Flying Club Subang (AAFC)
Whats happening in AAFC
We are taking big steps as we approach the 11th anniversary of the Air Adventure Flying Club. Besides getting our students to pass the flight and ground test we are also planning great outings to Pangkor and Tioman as part of our 11th anniversary celebration in mid February 2019.
And here is the latest of the Lady pilots of the AAFC, 3 of our 8 lady pilots went for their written exams, keeping fingers crossed that all are passing and soon can go for their check ride…..
by ADV 370 aka Hidaya on 9M TFC early morning of the 4th of January 2019. Please join me in congratulating her on her first solo.
As part of our 10 years anniversary we invited the Lumiere Academy to come and visit us at the Subang Airport.
November 23 & 26 kids and teachers came visited the Air Adventure Flying Club, took a ride in the Cessna 172 aircraft as well as discovered the Meteorology department, AFRS ( Airport Fire & Rescue Services) and just had a great day out.
Thank you to Ms. Tanne from the school for coming and spending some time with our instructors, and fellow members and pilots.
We feel it is important to share our happiness being around aircraft and in the skies…. and learning something.
understanding the physic classes is important, understanding on how it all connects in real life is priceless.
we are happy to touch, move and inspire young kids…. and maybe we have planted some seeds and who knows may have new pilots in the making……
The Air Adventure Flying Club is providing more than 10 years of flight training, 10 years of aircraft rental and 10 years of happy pilots. Being one of the biggest flying clubs in South East Asia, the Air Adventure Flying Club.
In just 10 years the AAFC has attracted and provided for more than 500 members flight training and leisure flying sunrise to sunset 365 days a year. We are proud to have members from as far away as Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago, USA, Sudan, South Africa, Nigeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Ecuador, Portugal, Russia, Japan, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and of naturally Malaysia.
500 members and endless memories and experiences with our beloved ladies 9M NCU – 9M TFC – 9M JFA & N1188U.
…. and we are working hard to improve and expand and renew ourself….
A new training and office facility located at the Berjaya hangar is ready and well appreciated by all that are drooping by for an inspection of the facilities. Still we are not abandoning the hangar at Wirakris, we will maintain another operation center and aircraft cleaning service from that location.
A new aircraft. We have been so fortunate that the new owner of 9M- ZAR is allowing all members and students to make use of this 172 SP model that comes with lots of new dials at the cockpit. This very nice and powerful aircraft is ready to soar as soon as we have the C of A worked out….. making the AAFC fleet a whopping 6 aircraft… and all of them are Cessna. Is it the largest Cessna fleet for a club in Asia….
Congratulations to our new Flight Instructors Captain Omar and Captain Ridzuan. Seen here receiving their certificate for passing with flying colours their Flight instructor refresher course. Well done captains and welcome to the AAFC.

9M-JFA our Cessna 150M – Engine overhaul progress –
the engine has arrived in the USA and is currently stripped down to the core. Standing by to hear whats next from the USA…. I guess to make a payment.

Please confirm with Sebastian you attendance and reserve your seat in one of the aircraft. We hope that 9M-ZAR and N1188U will be ready by that time..... it has been too long of a wait to get her to the skies again.
