We may be a little biased in saying this, but helicopter flight training has got to be one of the most exhilarating experiences in life. It can be challenging to say the least, but the sense of achievement, career opportunities, and personal growth that people develop is well worth the effort.

We understand the obstacles that inevitably come up in training and that every person has a way of learning that benefits them most. So we believe a tailored approach to our lessons is the best way to help our students succeed. Communication and support is key in both the industry and in our classrooms.


Our flight school is based at Essendon Airport. It's easily accessible from the Tullamarine freeway; we're 20 minutes from the city centre. The benefit of flying out of Essendon is the exposure it gives to students to controlled airspace from day one; it helps to develop confidence in using the radio and being able to follow procedures in restricted airspaces. Looking to obtain an ASIC? Give us a call, we've recently become an issuing agent for Aviation ID Australia.
