Learning to fly is an exciting journey. From your trial instruction flight to your first solo, passing your theory exams, learning to navigate through the air, gaining your pilots certificate and then taking a friend or loved one with you for the first time and sharing your passion with them. It takes time and dedication, but being able to pilot your own aircraft all over Australia makes it all worth it!
