The Sydney Recreational Flying Club began in 1985 as the Sydney Ultralight Flying Club.

The Club was one of the original clubs under the Australian Ultralight Federation (forerunner to Recreational Aviation Australia), and we began with tailwheel aircraft powered with two-stroke engines.

In 2008 SRFC commenced using Aeroprakt Foxbat aircraft and we continue the tradition of training in tailwheel aircraft. The club no longer operates aircraft powered by two-strokes, however much of our training philosophy has been developed from those early experiences.
