Recreational aviation in Australia is a well kept secret. Recreational Pilots can fly almost anywhere in Australia except controlled airspace, e.g. Parafield or Adelaide airports in SA for example.

We provide the community with thorough, safe and affordable flight instruction. Our highly qualified and diverse flight training instructors offer a wide spectrum of experience and training focused on your individual goals.

Safety and Fun

Whether you're completely new to aviation or have flown aircraft before, Recreational flying is the way to fly that is easier, more affordable, safe, and loads of FUN! So, climb aboard, take the controls, and launch new adventures in recreational aviation today!

Nobody forgets the first time they fly an aircraft on their own. It’s just you, you are in command and even though you have some ways to go until you get your certificate, you become a pilot. It is an amazing experience!
