This is where it all starts. You will be given a ground briefing by the instructor on how the plane flies, how the controls work and what to expect. From there you will prep the aircraft, jump in and leave the ground behind you. The instructor will control the aircraft to a safe manouvering height and there your first in flight lesson starts. You will handle the controls while performing basic turns, climbs and descents at the same time feeling the exhilaration of FLIGHT.
An application will need to be made to RA-Aus (instructors will help with this) to receive a student licence and a membership fee will need to be paid.
Flying comes naturally to some more than others, but with persistance, determination and the invaluable help of Flightscopes friendly instructors you will be able to work at and achieve the goal of flying. As you progress through the lessons there will both written and practical exams. There is also a minimum requirement of 20 flying hours. We find that the majority of people take between 25-30 hrs.
But this is not the end. On completion and passing the exams you will receive a Pilots Certificate issued by RA-Aus, based on the type of aircraft you have trained in. But this is not the end! IN FACT its only the BEGINNING. The Pilots Certificate allows you to fly with-ina radius of 25 nautical miles from your departure airfield. This is where the endorsements apply and the real FUN begins.
