Great Training Location

At GoFly we are committed to ensuring you receive the very best training from the time you commence training with us. At our non-controlled airport, there is no restrictions on circuits or touch and go landings, and no landing fees and no waiting for commercial flights to take off. Pus the coastline and Glasshouse Mountain scenery is spectacular!

The price for a Commercial Pilot Licence is around $30,000 cheaper through GoFly than through other flight schools, as we can teach around 85% of the course in recreational aircraft and then convert to a commercial aircraft. Our new Boeing 737 Simulator can also be used to practice on and prepare you for applying to commercial airlines.
