Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and learn something new? Welcome to Lethbridge Aviation Flight Training. Our goal is to give aviators the skills, experience and confidence they need in order to become safe and competent pilots. Our training is flexible and very personalised. Our airfield has great facilities, and no commercial operators or traffic to contend with slowing your
departure times. Contact us to learn more!
GPA operates pilot training from Lethbridge Airport, conveniently located on the Midland Highway between Geelong (25 mins) and Ballarat (35 mins), and about 70 minutes from Melbourne CBD. We use high-wing Tecnam aircraft in the Flying School for initial training, and a low-wing Pioneer 300 Kite for more advanced training, including navigation instruction (cross country).
Our instructors will provide a professional service of the highest standards in a friendly supportive manner that will ensure a great outcome. For around $125 you could take a Trial Instructional Flight (TIF). You will get to take the controls in the pilot's seat and see what it's like to fly an airplane. You can start at almost any age, however, you need to be over the age of 15 years to go solo (and never too old)!
Once you complete your Pilot Certificate, you can proceed onto a RPL, PPL, or CPL licence, confident in the knowledge that all your hours with us count directly toward whatever licence you choose to undertake. We have airline and RAAF pilots who started with Golden Plains Aviation.
To commence training, your health standard needs to be equivalent to that required in maintaining a motor vehicle license. For more information please go to http://www.goldenplainsaviation.com.au/
