Flight Experience Package


 Package Overview

Before you invest in a career as a pilot or are looking into our Pathway 1 Diploma in Aviation, how can you be sure that flying an aeroplane is right for you? One way is to give yourself the experience of being a pilot before you begin full time flight training. SFC's Flight Experience Package will give you a thorough trial of what pilot training and flying an aeroplane is all about.

  • The Flying Experience Package includes
    • 1.5 hour flying session on the general handing of an aeroplane in a four-seater Piper Cherokee
    • 1.5 hour flying session of cross-country navigation in a four-seater Piper Cherokee
    • 1.0 hour lesson of instrument flying in a full-motion synthetic flight training device
    • Three hours of flight briefings with your instructor

Pre-Flight Briefings 

The Flight Experience Package consists of 3x one hour briefings. These will be delivered prior to each flight outlining everything from aircraft functions to basic navigation.

 Flight lessons

The flying component of the Flight Experience Package involves two separate flights and one session in the simulator.

Flight number one will take west of Sydney you through all of the necessary steps in controlling the aircraft, getting you familiar with one of our state-of-the-art Piper Warrior III's. Your Flight Instructor will guide your thorugh your first flight lesson, with you flying the plane!

The second flight will be a short navigation flight. Headed down south, you will fly over the southern highlands towards the stunning coastal city of Wollongong where you will experience flight into a non-controlled aerodrome before departing back to Bankstown.

We will also take you through some operations in our full motion, Redbird simulator situated in our Bankstown Airport clubhouse. Giving you the change to try some more advanced maneuvers without leaving the ground!
