Here is what you do:

  • Choose your aircraft type: The Foxbat or the Microlight.
  • Take a trial flight.
  • Book in for lessons and become a member of Recreational Aviation Australia as a student pilot.
  • Do your training and learn your theory. (Yes, we help you with the theory, because we want you to know it, and remember it. So, we make it as easy as possible.)
  • Pass your pre-solo test, radio operator's test, and do your solo flight when you are ready and approved by the Chief Flight Instructor.
  • Gain extra experience and skill while you keep expanding your theory understanding; then do the pilot test.
  • Perform well and you can have your pilot certificate when the CFI says you are ready.
  • Then it is a matter of more experience and training to get ready for passenger endorsement and cross-country endorsement.

You must be at least 15 years of age and physically fit enough to be granted a driver's licence.

OUR FACILITIES

THE HANGAR

Midcoast Microlights operates from modern facilities within a large renovated hangar.

The Flying School uses a hangar with associated training rooms, office, staff rooms and an engineering area.

Some aircraft are housed on aircraft lifts, which enables floor space to be kept to a premium. Roof space also is used for some wing storage.

Students using their own aircraft can negotiate short term hangar arrangements if space is available.

Accommodation can be arranged at motels or caravan parks in Coffs Harbour.
