How good a pilot are you ...really? Good question.

RAAus pilots are required to renew their Pilots Certificate by participating in a Bi-annual Flight Review (BFR) - once every two years..

Experience with BFR’s has shown that the vast majority of pilots allow their skill levels to slip….some considerably!!. Lack of practice of the more skilled aspects of their flying, fear maybe. So what’s the solution? A good pilot NEVER stops learning. That’s how we ensure our skill levels are at their peak…every time we fly.

RAAus encourages pilots to continue with their flying skill development by adding “endorsements” to Certificate. Formation, Tail dragger, Low performance  and many more. One VERY IMPORTANT endorsement is the Advanced Pilot Award (APA). For your ongoing skill development we highly recommend that you add this endorsement to your Certificate. Yes there is an investment involved BUT safety is always a cost. So what’s involved?

The RAAus Advanced Pilot Award Syllabus can be found here

We train pilots who want to improve their flying skills in exactly the same way as we train pilots who are just starting out. We have an established program and fly dual through each section then send you off solo to practice. You pay as you train and when you reach the required standard of proficiency you earn your APA “wings”.

Initially we concentrate on your:-

Airmanship
Aircraft performance
Take off safety, including engine failures with and without runway available.
Skill development includes:-

    • Lazy eights – none aerobatic! A great way to hone your stick, rudder, aileron and throttle control inputs.
    • Lazy 8
    • Steep 360 deg gliding turns
    • Sideslipping turns
    • Stall recovery in climbing and descending turns
    • Stall recovery in skidding turns
    • Stall recovery in steep gliding turn
    • Ground reference manoeuvres
    • Gliding from overhead with accuracy
    • Crosswind take-off and landing

Many of these aspects of flight you will have encountered in your rookie training. The difference here is we are looking to sharpen those initial skills and help you develop into the very best pilot you can be.

How many hours are required? There is no minium time frame. It's solely based on proficiency. We would suggest somewhere between 5-10 hours would be a reasonable time.

Too many students learn to fly. They don’t develop into fully “skilled” pilots. That’s what we do with the Advanced Pilots Award.

Give Mike a call today to discuss the Advanced Pilots Award and book in for one of the best things you can do once you gain your Pilots Certificate…  You won’t regret it.
