School Holiday Program

What does the course involve?

Smartair instructors teach the basics of flying , both flying practicals and theory over a 5-day period. Classes run from 8.00am through to 5.30pm each day from Smartair's base at Albury Airport. 

Each morning after a collective briefing on that day's exercises, students are then able to take to the sky in turn, with the instructor beside them. After flying, it's right back down to earth because students need to study modules from the supplied theory books to cover the syllabus required for the pre-solo exam. 

Practical Component

  • Effects of controls
  • Straight & level
  • Climbing & descending
  • Turning
