The course is conducted at Werribee, Victoria. The course consists of all flying and theory up to RAAus licence standards.

Flying can only take place when the weather conditions are suitable, so it may be necessary to complete the flying training in stages. As a general rule, most flying will take place during the early morning and evenings but in any case, when conditions are suitable. Clothing required: It is essential that you are prepared for the weather conditions. Warm clothes, long pants or ski pants, jacket, gloves, sunglasses and sunscreen.
