RAAus Training Packages

RAAus Trial Instructional Flight

Our Trial Flights give you a feel for what it is really like to fly an aeroplane.

The Trial Instructional Flight is no joy flight.

It's a 30 or 60 minute hands-on experience where you get to fly our Foxbat A22LS.

You'll be one-on-one with our Instructor who'll give you a pre-flight briefing about aircraft systems and flying as part of the flight.

This initial investment in flight training is just $165.00 for 30 minutes or $300.00 for 60 minutes.

Do it the smart way and talk to one of our skilled & experienced pilots to help plan your flying journey.
