Learning to fly is as complicated as learning to drive. When a person is learning to drive, the first thing they feel is fear—and excitement. When they begin, they don’t know the right way to turn around a corner, or how to parallel park. But with time, practice and the right instructor, they will pass the dreaded driving test and hit the road. What once seemed so foreign now seems like second nature, and turning and parallel parking both become muscle memory.
Learning to fly is much the same. With the right training and practice, becoming a pilot becomes accessible for anyone! Recreational flying and flying commercially however are two very different things and require different levels of expertise. For example, you may be responsible for the safety of hundreds of passengers on a plane as a commercial pilot. If you are wanting to become an airline pilot, or thinking about one of the many amazing pilot career options, the AVI50519 Diploma of Aviation is the comprehensive training and preparation that you need.
Why choose Learn to Fly Melbourne for your AVI50519 Diploma of Aviation
Transparency & Affordability
Stay away from schools that ask you to pay for the whole course upfront without telling you exactly what they’re charging you for, without a thorough breakdown. Make sure they mention additional ancillary you may have to pay (like landing fees at other airports, for example). The flight school you choose should tell you the cost per hour for each aircraft. They should also give you the cost for theory sessions, as well as exams. They should be able to advise you on how much time it usually takes a student to master the skills taught in the course.
At Learn to Fly we want everybody to have the opportunity to learn to fly, without affordability being a barrier. We believe in total transparency, which is why we give you a full payment schedule when you’re enrolling with us. This breaks down the cost of every single component of the course. It includes pay when you apply items, non-flying components, pay as you fly items, as well as any additional requirements you may need to pay for.
