So, you’ve just watched Top Gun and think you’ve got what it takes to be a pilot? Great! It’s actually easier to learn to fly than you think.
For longer than you can remember, you’ve always wanted to be a pilot. Nothing beats the thrill of being pushed into your seat during take off on a passenger plane. Your heart pounds when you look out the window at the ground below and the sky on the horizon. The view is more than amazing - it’s intoxicating. But the thought of getting your pilot licence always felt too difficult to pursue. Maybe there was no flight school in your area when you grew up. Perhaps you thought flying lessons were too expensive. Whatever the reason, one thing never left you – your craving for adventure.
Taking the first step into the brave and exciting world of flight training is easier than you think. Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to become a pilot – let Soar Aviation give you your first taste of true freedom with a Trial Introductory Flight (TIF). The first step towards ongoing pilot lessons or just a once-off adventure into the big blue sky, a TIF is a no-obligation first lesson. After a brief introduction on how an aircraft flies and is controlled, you’ll step into the cockpit of a real plane and take to the skies. Imagine the roar of the engine as your two-seater Foxbat plane rockets down the runway, lifting off into the air to climb high above the clouds.
Once airborne, our instructor will give you a real taste of what it is to learn to fly. You’ll even get to take the stick and guide the aircraft through the air. It’s a first experience that every pilot remembers! Whether you’re interested in pursuing further pilot lessons or want to give someone an awesome gift they will never forget, nothing beats taking the controls of an aircraft for your first time in a TIF. Once you get a taste, it’s easy to start pilot training in Melbourne or Sydney and begin your unforgettable career in aviation. Join us today at our flight school at Moorabbin Airport, Melbourne or Bankstown Airport Sydney.
Before climbing into the cockpit you will first spend half an hour in a classroom with one of our friendly instructors. Here you will cover the basics of aerodynamics, and what you can expect to see and feel once your flight commences. Once the briefing has concluded, you instructor will accompany you to the aircraft and take you through a pre-flight inspection.
Now all the preliminaries are completed it is time to do what you came here to do… fly! On the TIF your instructor will use a method called Demo, Direct and Supervise, whereby they show you a particular task and talk you through it; once you’re comfortable, they’ll sit back and watch you accomplish it all by yourself.
During this exhilarating flight you’ll get hands on control of the aircraft and learn various aircrarft manoeuvres. All this occurs while safely under the supervision and control of your qualified instructor.
Once you’re back safely on the ground and the aircraft is parked we will return to the classroom for a debriefing session. Here your instructor will honestly assess your competency and help you connect the theory with you learnt beforehand with what happened during the flight. This gives you an opportunity to ask you instructor any questions you have about the experience.
Now that your First Lesson has whet your appetite for flight, your instructor can outline the best way for you to take the next step in your training; whether that’s flying for fun, or to begin forging your new career in aviation.
We believe that once you have experienced the initial thrill of flying, like us, you too will be hooked!
