Learn to Fly | Starter Package

If you’re sure aviation is for you but you’re not quite ready to commit to a full course, our Learn to Fly Starter Package is a great place to start. Here you will complete your first three lessons and develop your basic aviation skills. Each lesson will be recorded in your logbook and hours can be counted for Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), Private Pilot Licence (PPL) and Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL).

Effects of Controls
First you will start in the classroom and cover the theory of the basic effects of control, then step a real dual controlled aircraft and demonstrate how an aircraft behaves in the air, what happens when the aircraft slows down, speeds up, climbs, descends, how to read your altitude, airspeed and much more.

Straight & Level 
Straight and Level is your second lesson and the most often used. Once you have completed the takeoff and climbed out of the airport, you will be looking forward to level off at an altitude and cruise for however long you want before coming down to land. This takes up maximum time of your flying experience and is considered one of the most enjoyable parts of flying.

Climbing & Descending
In this lesson you will learn different ways to achieve a climb and descend. After takeoff the first thing you will do is climb out and depending on circumstances, like obstacles and runway length, you will choose to climb out at different attitudes. You will learn 3 types of climbs, best angle of climb, best rate of climb and cruise climb. On ground you will learn different application of these and how to achieve it. Attitudes that you will need to set and hold to achieve the climb.

Your starter package will be broken down into three components:


Lesson One Effects of control


Lesson Two Straight and level


Lesson Three Climbing and descending
