The Flying School is located at Bunbury Airport, 145 km south of Perth on the scenic south-west coast of Western Australia. The low traffic density airspace is ideal for early flying training, whilst the higher density environment of Perth is conveniently located for the advanced stages.
Our aim is to give you a genuine operational capability, i.e. teach you to do what you are licenced to do, and do it well. This entails not only controlling an aeroplane competently; it also requires you to perform procedures effectively with understanding; to use in-depth knowledge to enhance performance beyond the routine; and most importantly, to manage the flight: to plan, monitor, prioritise, exercise sound judgement and make confident command decisions. Training is carefully structured using a step-by-step building block approach where each lesson lays the foundation for the next. There is no unstructured hour building, and every hour, dual and solo, is used productively to develop your skills.
The School’s training courses are approved by CASA (the Civil Aviation Safety Authority). The School is also an Approved VET FEE-HELP Provider, and the tuition fees for its Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Rating) – Course AVI50415 course, can be covered by a VET FEE-HELP loan for eligible students.
