    Learn To Fly SydneyTake to the skies and learn the basics of flying with this Trial Introductory Flight. Here is your opportunity to get behind the controls of a modern flying training aircraft with an experienced flight instructor and Australia’s Tail Wheel Specialists. Get a taste for the thrill of being a pilot and take control of the aircraft while soaring over the Macarthur region.

    This flight allows you to "try before you buy". Your day will begin with a briefing by your flight instructor, here you will learn about what to expect during the flight and how the controls of the aircraft operate. The flight takes place out of Camden airport and you will be airborne for approximately 30 minutes. During this time you will experience thrilling hands on flying time. All training aircraft are fitted with dual controls to ensure safety and you will have communication with your instructor at all times. 

    Your aircraft for the flight will be the Citabria (airbatic backwards!), a tail wheel aircraft and ideal basic trainer. You will learn to fly 'stick and rudder' with 'power and attitudes', this will give you a lifelong grounding in the skills required to fly all aircraft that traditional nosewheel trainers do not. We highly recommend that you complete your primary flight training in this aeroplane. A PiperSport aircraft is also available.

    On completion of the TIF you will have a de-brief with your instructor. The 30 minute TIF flight time can be logged towards your license. So what are you waiting for? Get up in the air and live your dream of being a pilot for the day!
