"After searching different methods of pursuing my dreams of flying; price, time and methods would always dishearten my pursuit of flying…

Until I spoke to GoFly Aviation; they have a dynamic team willing to help you fly no matter your circumstances, flexible times and a well-constructed plan for any licence you pursue."

"I chose GoFly initially purely based on cost and location ( lets face it, the aviation industry requires a decent savings account, or personal loan ). I have been doing my training in a Sling, and it is a remarkable aircraft to fly.  My experience with the staff at GoFly Caloundra so far has been more than pleasant as everyone is relaxed, friendly and confident in and out of the cockpit.

As someone who has approximately 370 hours total time, I can honestly say the hours I have spent with GoFly so far, have been the best hours of my flying career. I would recommend GoFly to anyone who has dreamt of flying, from recreational purposes to commercial purposes."
