Smartair is a long established flight training provider with 50 years experience and a reputation for quality training. Whether you want to learn to fly for fun or you're contemplating a serious path, we can show you how.
With our flexible training model, Smartair can tailor programs to suit your needs. We provide personal service to full-time trainees seeking a career or weekend enthusiasts who treat flying as a hobby.
With Smartair, you can learn to fly safely, in an uncluttered airspace, with experienced and friendly instructors in Albury.
While there's no minimum age for flying training, you must be at least 16 before flying solo, 17 before you can hold a Private Pilots Licence and 18 years old for the Commercial Pilots Licence. There is no maximum age restriction for the Private Licence. While there are no formal educational requirements necessary to begin flying training, some maths or science training will be helpful.
