This is the real thing! YOU fly a real aircraft yourself, with an experienced instructor beside you all the way. You will have a classroom briefing then take the controls in our beautiful Viper SD4, or Sling 2 aircraft. Both are sleek, modern and safe aircraft with full dual controls and a fabulous view of the beautiful Sunshine Coast region below you.(Note: flight training from Caloundra is through our partners, GoFly Aviation)
Included in your First Flying Lesson is a 45 minute classroom briefing (Effects of the Controls) with reference notes provided followed by a full 60 minutes at the controls of the Viper SD4 aircraft on your 'First Flying Lesson', an exciting experience you will always remember! Your instructor will have you climbing, turning and descending the aircraft all by yourself in no time at all!
There is no lower or upper age limits to taking flying lessons, but you have to be minimum 15 years old to fly solo or hold a Pilot Certificate. At the other end of the age spectrum, learning to fly is a great activity for retirees looking to stay active in mind and body! All that's required is to be in good health and to be 'young at heart'.!
Get set for the excitement of taking the controls and the feeling of what it’s like to really fly an aircraft! This is the first full lesson in our training syllabus for the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC). It will give you the opportunity to find out if “Learning to Fly” is for you! The RPC is the first 'stepping stone' for those wanting to learn to fly for fun and for a career. Talk to your instructor about how the RPC opens up various pathways to a career in the airlines or the ADF. There is no obligation to continue with further lessons however, if you decide to continue you are still eligible to purchase a Student Pilot Starter Kit and save on the 'start-up costs' of your training. Read our INFORMATION PACK for full details on our Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) course syllabus, estimated costs and much more!
