History of the Bathurst Aero Club 1938-2018

The 80th Birthday of the Bathurst Aero Club prompted Jerry Trevor-Jones to break open the club scrapbooks and compile the history of the club into a book which is now available for purchase.

As with his previous books, Jerry has donated the production costs of the book, so all proceeds of sales will go towards another Flying Scholarship.

Full Colour editions are $85 and B&W are $35

Email the club or contact Jerry Trevor-Jones directly to secure your copy.
