As regularly as possible, however we recommend a maximum of 3-4 days and then a day of rest. We recommend at minimum half a day a week (2 to 3 flights). Flying regularly will insure that the knowledge and skills you have learnt are retained. If you don’t fly regularly unfortunately these skills and knowledge will reduce and ultimately it will cost you significantly more to achieve the required competency standards. This is why we won’t provide training to students looking at doing 1 flight per week. If time or cost is a factor right now, you are best saving your money and finding more time in the future to do the training.
No. However we strongly encourage it. It will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the aircraft’s limits and the ability to manage the aircraft if mishandled. It’s the best type of defensive flying skill you can develop and it’s a load of fun!
Yes. Every flying hour you conduct in an RA-Aus registered aircraft counts towards a CASA Flight Crew Licence.
Call us, we’re here to help. Most of our students follow “The Stick ‘n Rudder Standard” which is illustrated in our courses page – click HERE. This format produces superior pilots with superior skills!
Probably once a week initially for the first month. Then once a fortnight thereafter. Why? It’s like anything you’ve learnt. If you don’t practice, you forget.
Yes! That’s the best part, you can show your news skills off to your friends!
You’re never too old to learn something new. We have trained many students in their 70s. If you’ve got the right attitude and you’re determined, we’ll get you there.
While you can learn to fly from any age, you cannot go solo before you are 15. As a result we don’t recommend that you conduct many lessons before the age of 14.
You can drive a car wearing glasses, right? The same thing applies with aviation. Even airline captains wear glasses. As long as your vision is correctable to an acceptable standard, you’ll be right to fly.
Absolutely! You will be confident on how to operate an aeroplane throughout its full flight envelope safely and will instinctually know what to do if an aircraft is in an undesired state.
If you’re motivated to learn and your medical fit to drive a car, yes!
