customised Learning

We offer both part-time and full-time courses up to your Commercial Pilot Licence standard. We use both a mixture of Glass Cockpit and analogue aircraft to give you the best chance of employment once you have completed your commercial pilot training.

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!

Competitive pricing

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.
