Bunbury Flying School offers career and recreational pilot courses on a full-time basis with integrated theoretical knowledge training. It also offers these on a part-time basis specifically designed to suite the individual’s personal requirements. Training is conducted 7 days a week; full-time courses are generally run during the week, and part-time courses on weekends as well, with the schedule adjusted to the client’s availability.

Theoretical knowledge ground schools such as for the CPL and IREX (Instrument Rating) are full-time during the week only on a group basis. Clients can elect to complete specific subjects only, and when availability permits, individualised lectures can be provided outside the scope of a formal ground school.
