If you wonder what it is like to fly an aircraft, have fun, challenge yourself and make new like-minded friends, this opportunity is for you!
The 3-Day program gives you the opportunity to find out more about becoming a pilot. The program provides an opportunity for a maximum number of eight participants over three days to experience what is like to train as a pilot as well as share the flight environment utilising MFS' Piper Warrior aircraft.
All practical and theory training is delivered by MFS instructors with each participant receives pre and post-flight briefings. Visits to local on-field aviation businesses/organisations and facilities may be arranged, and subject to operational requirements a visit to the control tower.
This really is a fantastic opportunity to learn many of the hands-on skills required to pilot an aeroplane in a fun and relaxed environment. While there is some time spent flying in an aircraft or a full size simulator, the focus is that by the end of the course you will understand what it takes to become a pilot, the medical requirements, the structure of a typical training day, the knowledge and skills required to obtain your licence, and what are the various training pathways for either a career in aviation or as a recreational pilot including Vocational Education in Schools (VETiS) options for Years 10 to 12.
While targeted at participants 15 years of age, participants over 13 years of age will be considered based on height and maturity..

"I just wanted to pass on our thanks for running this course. My son had a great time and was a ball of excited energy when he returned home. We loved hearing about the simulator, the training flights and his radio call to the flight tower. The career advice you gave him will help keep him focused over the next few years as he finishes high school. The poster of the plane was a great souvenir and will help him remember the terrific three days he sent with you."
"Thanks for organising such an awesome experience."
