Whether your goal is to become a recreational (RAAus) pilot, private pilot or even a commercial pilot, we have your needs covered! All local to the beautiful regions around Swan Hill, in Victoria's North-West.

RAAus Flight Training

We understand how important an excellent relationship between instructor and student really is. It's a partnership - and having a great sense of understanding and effective communication is absolutely key.


We are experienced, which means getting to know you is just as important as simply teaching you how to fly!


Importantly, we are not a big school and we don't pretend to be something that we are not. Instead, we pride ourselves on simple, easy-to understand training that gives pilots confidence in their aircraft, their environment and themselves. 

Currency & Reviews

Once you learn to fly, let's keep our relationship going - or, let's get to know each other so that we can fly together and get the most out of our experiences.


How often that you fly, in aviation, is as important as what experiences you have when you do, so we encourage everyone to fly often and test their skills with others to become safer and better pilots!

Good currency and recency practices, as well as constant learning, is one key to our philosophy.

Call us today for a chat - whether you're just starting off, or if you simply want to get to know who we are.
