The Aero Club of East Africa has been around for over 90 years! Great club with an old fashioned feel! Highly recommeneded for a stop-over (coffee or a meal) when at Wilson Airport!

It was a chilly night but the laughter from my friends conversions and the great service from he bar kept us going. Java was also good with dinner

If you're flying through Wilson Airport it is the best place to spend time. Coffee is good with affordable prices. Be careful of the opening time is 6:00 a.m.

Several artifacts on display (engines used in antique planes, etc.) as you walk through to the bar or dining room. Nice atmosphere.

This flying club, dating back almost 100 years, does a lot to bring a piece of the history of British east Africa to life. it's a nice relaxing spot to have a drink or a bite to eat.

Helps with unwinding watching the planes take off and land. As I enjoyed my cup of coffee. Best Place to visit after a hard days work.

I love that it is tucked away and private. We were able to have a nice family lunch and a private chat as we plane spotted.

This place hides a java coffee shop. Really pleasent venue if you get to Wilson with time on your hands. Aero club is members only - but java is set innthe same builfing with plenty of old engines on show.
