We get students flying with us from all over the country but the majority would have to be from Canberra. And why wouldn’t they. It’s just a 2 hour drive and they can learn to fly from Canberra over the beautiful South Coast and away from pesky controlled airspace. Plus when our Canberra students come […]
Merit Aviation is located at Moruya Airport, on the NSW South Coast
Head east to the coast and away from controlled airspace, where you can learn in a more relaxed environment. Moruya Airport is just 2 and a half hours from Canberra. Commute for the day or stay for a week!
Head south and you’ll find the skies have a lot less traffic and therefore a lot less stress. We are 4 and a half hours from Sydney so you should plan to visit us to do your training in chunks. An awesome way to focus on your flying.
We have lots of students from Bega with it being just 2 hours drive away. Flying in Moruya is the best way for land lubbers to enjoy the coast. You’ll have a totally new appreciation of beaches along the NSW south coast.
Meet our small team of excellent and professional flight instructors. Not to mention good looking!

Past student spotlight
Meet a few of the students that Merit Aviation has taught over the last 10 years… and what they have thought about us!
CPL Jump Pilot with SkyDive OZ
Jack started as a young guy of 19 with Merit Aviation and progressed from RPL right through to CPL. He’s worked as the jump pilot with SkyDive Oz (who are the hanger next door) for 2 years and has gained a tremendous amount of experience. He just recently started as a First Officer with Papua Air flying their Dash-8.
Private Pilot License & part aircraft owner
Like many of our students Ellis was a bit of a late starter. Proving to us and to many out there that it is never to late to learn something new. Ellis joined a syndicate that was building a Jabiru 4 seater aircraft and wanted to learn to fly it. So he helped build the aircraft and we taught him to fly it! Ellis has his PPL now and continues to fly the Jabiru recreationally.
Recreational Pilot Certificate – looking for cadetship for CPL
Michael was a mere 15 years old when he started his aviation trajectory with Merit Aviation. Now 17 and having completed his Recreational Pilot Certificate – Michael is applying for cadetships with the airlines as well as with the armed forces.

Some students that come to Merit Aviation are a bit hesitant as to whether they can master the theory as well as the flying. Mike was one of these students. But after a tentative start Mike proved that he had more than enough brain power, got his PPL and bought a C172. He continues to fly every week in between running his many caravan parks in the area. Not a bad way to keep an eye on them… from above!

Upon retirement Geoff decided that he wanted to tick something off of his bucket list and learn to fly. He started in Narrandera NSW, so when he relocated to the South Coast NSW area, Merit Aviation picked up where his training had left off. He had bought a 2-stroke Rans S6 Coyote and so he completed his Recreational Pilot Certificate in that with us.
