HGFA SCHOOLS

Learning to fly through a registered HGFA flight training schools is the safest way to learn to fly. Our schools are required to conform to the HGFA (and CASA) minimum standards for equipment, operational systems, certification and ongoing support.

HGFA flight training schools will train and qualify Supervised Pilots or Pilot Certificate holders to fly capably on their own (within the limits of their skill and experience), and to be able to extend their flight skills and experience in a progressive manner.

New pilots are then encouraged by HGFA flight training schools to join a local HGFA affiliated Club. HGFA Clubs will provide support and guidance to new pilots to help them improve their skills and gain more experience so they can get more of out of their sport, safely.

Most schools will run sessions to help you to take your skills to the next level of proficiency. The schools will organise tours and specialist clinics, providing endorsement training such as VHF Radio Operator, Towing, Motored Flight, Cross-Country Flying and SIV Manoeuvres.
