Your instructor will talk you through the start up, taxiing and take-off before you take to the skies.

The first flight is to the west of Launceston airport and lasts approximately 30 minutes. During this time you will be able to have hands on experience in flying the aeroplane. Following the flight there will be opportunity for you to record your flight in your pilot logbook and you will be given an aviation textbook to read prior to your next lesson. For your second flight you will be given a pre-flight briefing on how to fly the aircraft straight and level. Then you will be performing the pre-flight inspection before taking to the sky for a 60 minute lesson.
