Achieve a Major Milestone
All the feelings of success, excitement and accomplishment after piloting an aircraft solo for the first time are incredibly achievable with our First Solo Flight Course. The goal for this program is to develop your skills to a standard where your Flight Instructor feels comfortable to send you on your first solo flight.
After successful enrolment, students will be provided with their Training Starter Kit. It includes basic information regarding both practical and theoretical flight training. This will include runway orientation, aircraft checklists, airport and airspace introduction, wing terminology, basic flight training procedures and radio call structures.
Theory sessions will cover aeronautical knowledge, aircraft general knowledge, flight rules, radio procedures and Moorabbin Airport procedures. Ground Theory will be integrated into flight training. You will need to pass the Radio and Pre-Solo Air Legislation exams before going solo.
Before your scheduled flight training lessons, you’ll be able to utilise our professional flight training simulators to practice all procedures. The simulator helps you understand exactly how to perform in each training session before getting into the real aircraft. It is an ideal way to enhance your training efficiency and minimise costs.
The flight training you will undertake will be conducted in the newest generation Bristell or Sling 2 aircraft. Both aircrafts are equipped with modern glass cockpit avionics and LCD flight instrument displays similar to those in commercial passenger jets. Every new exercise is demonstrated by the flight instructor and the student will improve learned skills through practice.
At the end of the course, if your instructor feels you are competent to fly the aircraft on your own, they will send you on your FIRST SOLO. Yes, that does mean you are flying on your own with your instructor watching you from the ground. It’s an exciting moment for any pilot!
