Flying is a fascinating and rewarding activity, whether for business, pleasure or eventually for a career.
A Private Pilot Licence will allow you to fly aeroplanes anywhere in Australia and, if you wish, your passengers can share the cost of the flight with you. Learning to fly may be one of the most rewarding experiences you could undertake in your life. School children can learn, and may be sent on their first solo flight when they are 16. There is no upper age limit and people in their 70's have learned to fly. Yes, it does involve a lot more than learning to drive, but it does not require any special abilities or education standards; almost anyone can learn to fly. With this in mind the course here has been designed to assist you to obtain your goal in a reasonable time as you work at your own pace.
We use the popular Cessna 152, Cessna 172 and Piper Warrior aircraft for basic training, supplemented with a series of pre-flight briefings to ensure that you will receive consistent high quality instruction.
