2020 has been tough on us all, and on many pilots in particular. As a not-for-profit SFC exists primarily to benefit our members, and as such we are launching a new initiative to get pilots off the couch, and back amongst the clouds.

Many pilots are feeling out of practice, and SFC wants to offer members the opportunity to fly with the club captain to refresh those waning skills and build your confidence. Under the Couch to Clouds initiative, you will only be charged private hire rates on the aircraft, your instructor comes free of charge.

You can plan your flight to practice any area that you would like to revise, from circuits, practice forced landings, stalls through to NAV exercises and CTAF procedures. The choice is yours.

If you’re feeling rusty and low on confidence, or you know a pilot who would enjoy this member benefit, please reach out to SFC club captain Tim Lindley at [email protected] or by calling 0424 181 309
