Learning to Fly (1)
How much does it cost to learn how to fly?
This question is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string. Unfortunately, there’s no exact answer as it depends on a wide range of variables – such as your natural flying ability, how much effort you are willing to put into study, how often you plan on flying, the weather, the traffic on the day at Jandakot, on so on.
You can find some helpful information on our Learn to Fly page including some estimated costs. But remember every pilot is different so we cannot provide you with a quote or a fixed price.
