Getting Started

The best way to get going is with one of our package deals:

  • Tri This provides three flights to 3,000′ to get a real feel for what’s involved in learning to fly, before you commit further. Cost $450, apply here.
  • A Flying Start is a 7 day course aimed at preparing you for your first solo flight. It includes: 65,000 ft of aerotow (around 35 launches); all ground and air tuition; a copy of “Basic Gliding Knowledge”; a pilot’s log book; GFA Membership for 12 months; GCV Membership for one year. Cost $2,800, apply here.
    The course does not a guarantee a solo flight, but is the best and quickest way to work towards achieving it.

Alternatively, you can learn to fly at your own pace at weekends at Benalla. It is best if you can concentrate on regular visits over a short period as this makes it easier for you to retain what you learn.
