Our People

| Our Focus

At Learn 2 Fly our flight training ethos is focused on producing high quality commercial and private pilots to guiding the future of the Australian aviation industry. We are focused on training well equipped, safe and smart pilots rather than simply training cadets to obtain a licence. To achieve this, we are transforming the aviation learning environment and innovating our courses to make considerable infrastructure and asset investments to supply appropriate aircraft and simulators for training. At Learn 2 Fly we make learning effective and efficient through the use of state of the art technology, quality learning resources and a highly experienced team that draws on military, commercial and recreational aviation experience.
