Flight Training Overview




Each scheduled flight lesson includes a theory session directly before your flight with your Flight Instructor. All practical flight training is supervised. From your very first lesson, you’ll engage in starting up, take-offs, landings, and all the manoeuvres in between. Post-flight, debrief with your instructor to discuss your progress and prepare for the next lesson.
