Online Theory Courses

We are delighted to be able to offer you two online theory classes commencing NEXT WEEK using Zoom to connect to the classroom.  Both courses are capping their sizes to 10 to ensure everyone gets plenty of interaction!

The RPL(A)/BAK course will run for 9 weeks on Mondays with two class times - one at 2.00pm  and then again at 6.30pm.  (To limit group size and also maximise availability) On Tuesdays there will be a follow up Tutorial (Time TBC) to go through homework questions etc.  Cost is $350 and the main prerequisite  is the Bob Tait RPL/BAK Book 1 - Kickoff is Monday next week April 13.

The PPLA/RA Cross Country course will run for 12 weeks* starting next Wednesday April 15 at 6pm with a followup Tutorial on Thursdays (Time TBC) to go through homework questions etc.  It will also be based around the Bob Tait RPL/PPL Book 2 and is designed to cover all the new areas you'll need to know to pass your PPL theory test. (It is expected you have previously passed the RPLA/BAK exam) Cost is $750 which includes a hard copy of the entire course notes, all online material, 400+ practice questions and the option to resit the course if necessary.

* We are also considering offering the PPL Theory over 6 weeks intensively which would involve 2 Classes and 1 Tutorials per week - let the desk know if that would suit you better.

We have info sheets on both courses for you to look at or call the desk for more details or to book your spot.

August Covid-19 Update

Sadly STAGE 4 has forced the LFS to cease flight training for the time being. Given the fact that in the last 4 months there have been zero cases of Covid-19 transmission in Melbourne-based flying organisations, a number of appeals are being made at high level to the relevant Victorian authorities to exempt flight training from the shutdown.We are hopeful on these appeals while there also appear to be some grey areas in the STAGE 4 restrictions as published that may give us room to continue. However, we feel it appropriate to give it 5 days in the hope that a government response to clarify, one way or the other, can be elicited. In the meantime, Yarra Valley Aviation will remain open 7 days per week as per our normal operating hours for essential flying only.

Updated Advice

Lilydale Flying School is remaining open and operational at this time LFS recognises that pilot skills (especially when learning) degrade as time passes between flights and that our clients have invested or plan to invest considerable amounts of money, time and effort to complete their pilot qualifications. At this time, the best advice we have from Victorian and Federal Governments is that flying lessons continue to be deemed as educational and may continue under the current restrictions.
