RAAUS FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR
Melbourne born and bred, Learn To Fly RA-Aus Flight Instructor Nigel Pratt thought about becoming a pilot as a young boy but didn’t actually fly in a plane until he was 19 years old when he took a commercial flight to Sydney. Watching the ground fall away was such a huge buzz that he had to start training for a Private Pilot Licence.
Nigel completed his PPL training in 1977 and flew for fun for about 7 years in Australia, the UK and South Africa before life and a career in the medical world intervened. In 2012 he decided it was time to get back into flying, which eventually resulted in him completing an RAAus Flight Instructor Rating with Learn To Fly in 2017.
As part of our RA-Aus instructor team now, Nigel loves the challenges of working in a dynamic environment and imparting his knowledge on future pilots. His goal in flying is simple – to keep doing it and enjoying it until he’s unable to get into the cockpit anymore!
