General aviation and "those little airplanes" (as some may call them) are as safe as any other mode of travel, if not safer. Pilots and passengers do not use parachutes because airplanes and helicopters do not fall from the sky when their engines stop. An aircraft without an engine - even if it's supposed to have one - is a glider, capable of descending safely to a landing. Every student's training covers how to fly safely and how to deal with the extremely rare actual emergencies.

Detailed cost breakdowns can be found in our course section. During the first approximately 40 hours, each lesson will involve approximately one hour of flight time. Dual training rates for each aircraft can be found in our Rates section.

Learning to fly is not difficult, but it does require study and practice. The Recreational Aviation Australia requires a minimum of 20 hours of training before granting a pilot Certificate. Students who fly more frequently typically have better recall of previous lessons and spend less time in review.

Most lessons are based on a one-hour flight, but count on a minimum of two hours per session because of pre-flight and post-flight briefings. Students and instructors talk about what will be introduced or reviewed before each lesson, then cover how things went afterwards and what will be introduced in upcoming lessons.
