Your Instructor - Colin Appleton is the Chief Flying Instructor and co-owner of the Sunshine Coast Flying School, and one of Australia’s most experienced aerobatics instructors. He holds a CASA Part 61 Instructor Rating for aerobatics, including low level aerobatics (1,500', 1,000' & 500'), spin recovery, tailwheel, constant speed prop and retractable undercarriage endorsements.

The current Australian National Aerobatics Champions in both the Graduate and Sportsman categories were trained and coached by Colin at the Sunshine Coast Flying School.
Pilots - ask yourself the following:
Are you a pilot that gets nervous or suffers motion sickness in turbulent conditions?
Are you confident you could recover safely from a sudden and violent turbulence induced unusual attitude?
Are you confident you could avoid loss of control and recognise / prevent a spin / spiral after losing VMC in deteriorating weather conditions?
Are you confident you could quickly recognise and initiate the correct recovery from a spin or spiral dive with the level of training you currently have?
Do you secretly lack confidence and feel your training was not adequate and you should be a more capable and confident pilot, but you have your license so you do nothing about it?
We believe that EVERY pilot, as a minimum, should be trained to confidently recover from unusual attitudes, power-on stalls, incipient and fully developed spins. Sadly in most civilian flying schools these topics are not part of the basic pilot training syllabus. Therefore capable training aircraft are not available and student pilots (like their instructors before them) are only taught to fly confidently in two dimensions while we all fly in three dimensional airspace. The focus of the standard basic training syllabus in most flying schools is to teach pilots to “fear and avoid” unusual attitudes, slow speed maneuvering, stalls, spins / spirals. Does this sound like the pilot training YOU received?
