Flying over Sydney, overlooking the skyscrapers on the ground, the harbor and the sea, having an unprecedented flying experience.
At Pegasus, we ensure you obtain your flight training in the safest and most professional environment in Australia.
Whether you need a private jet charter for business or leisure travel, our professional team is always here to help.
Pegasus Air Services team will help you complete the various application forms required by CASA.
The following information will be required before the first solo flight:
1. A current medical certificate provided by the designated aviation medical examiner (DAME)
2. Aviation Reference Number (ARN)
3. Completion of pre-solo in-house exams
The training time you need to meet the test standards depends on your personal flight and learning efficiency. Take the RPL course as an example. If you can guarantee 4-5 hours of flying a week, the expected time to complete RPL is about 10 weeks. If you can only guarantee 2 hours of flying a week, it may take about 20 weeks to complete.
Absolutely not! Students can pay as you go. The cost is determined by your flight time and the type of aircraft selected on that day. Of course, you can also choose to do prepayment, and there will be corresponding discounts according to the amount prepaid.
The best way to start is to book a trial introductory flight (TIF). You can book a TIF on any day of the week. Pegasus Air Services regularly holds open day to show everyone what is it like to be a pilot and everything about the aviation career. Not only can you enjoy a free outdoor barbecue, but you also have the opportunity to meet your future instructors, as well some decent aircraft.
Absolutely! Learning how to fly and becoming a pilot is something very serious and only students who are willing to commit and work hard will be able to succeed in their pilot life. Different licenses require different levels of studies, for example, when conducting the private pilot license (PPL) training, there will be four exams, including solo flight pre-examination, regional solo flight pre-examination, aviation basic theory examination and PPL examination.
Absolutely! As long as you are able to use English for daily communication, you will be fine. We have flight instructors from all around the world, they can speak English, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese and French. They will be able to instruct and guide you when learning aviation English.
It is clearly stated on CASA’s website that there is no standard vision indicator for non-commercial pilots. As long as the corrected vision can pass the aviation medical examination, you will be able to fly.
Currently, the mainstream models for flying schools in the world are Cessna, which is popular in the United States; Piper, which is popular in Australia; and Diamond, which is popular in China. The cost of the above fleet type is from low to high. Choosing the most mainstream model in a country for learning is the wisest in terms of learning practicability and cost control. Our training fleet model is mainly Piper. And upon completion of the course, students can then fly aircraft like the Warriors and Archer. If students want to fly a Diamond, they will need to do 5-10 hours of new model training.
Unfortunately, they are not convertible.
Fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters are completely two different types of aircraft. Not only are the pilot licences, but different training schools also have different teaching qualifications. In addition, the helicopter licence is far less popular than the fixed-wing licence because of the following:
1. the price of helicopter licence training is very expensive, almost equal to double the price of a fixed-wing licence
2. the safety of helicopters is not as high as that of fixed-wing aircraft
3. the limited flying height of a helicopter results in a large limit on the flying distance, that is to say, it does not fly far compared to a fixed-wing aircraft.
Absolutely! When you start learning to fly, all your lessons and learning content will be recorded in your personal flight log book, as well as training file record stored in the schools system. If your study is interrupted during this period, when you come back to continue your study, you may inevitably spend more time to familiarise yourself with the aircraft again, but all the lessons you have flown before are permanently valid.
Australia has no age restrictions on learning to fly, but it has clear requirements for the age of going first solo and obtaining a pilot licence. Student can only go first solo if they are 15 years old or above; apply for the RPL test and get a RPL only if they are 16 years old or above; apply for the PPL test and get a PPL only if they are 17 years old or above; and apply for CPL test and get a CPL only if they are 18 years old or above. Depending on the licence, but we suggest students start learning to fly few months in advance so as soon as they meet the age requirement, they can apply for their flight test and get their licence straightaway.
