Gold Coast Sports Flying Club was established on Heck Field near Jacobs Well in the 1980’s.
Gold Coast Sports Flying Club was established on Heck Field near Jacobs Well in the 1980’s. The members are a diverse group of aviators from all sectors of the sport. The club is proud to promote recreational flying in a safe environment and encourage aviators, of all ages, to learn to fly in this safe and friendly atmosphere.
Flying training is a natural expansion for any club and we are proud to welcome new aviators and members to our family. Your training with GCSFT includes your initial student membership to Gold coast Sports Flying Club as well as access to the recently upgraded club facilities and social activities. There are no additional landing fees and once qualified, you can hire the Club Aircrfat at competitive rates if you become a full member of the club.
Heckfield Airfield is located in a non-controlled airspace near Jacobs Well on the Gold Coast, making it easy for new aviators to learn without the pressures of busy aerodromes. Every flight is a scenic experience over the beautiful waterways and beaches of the Gold Coast. It is nestled between Brisbane and Archerfield Airports to the North and Coolangatta to the South.
Minimum air traffic ensures maximum flying time, and the location offers immediate access to a well established training area.
