GOFLY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Learning to fly is expensive. GoFly Aviation understands that you might not be able to afford to fly weekly.  However, the more lessons you do in a short space of time, the more you progress and the less information you forget between lessons. There is a way to achieve your flight training goals faster than you would if you had to save up for your lessons.

GoFly has partnered with Study Loans to provide prospective students with four types of  loans: 

  • Recreational Pilot Certificate;
  • Cross Country and Passenger Endorsement;
  • Instructor Rating; 
  • Command & Conversion

The loan application process is very straightforward and you often have an answer within 24 hours.

For students wishing to access larger CPL and PPL loans, we have partnered with Alistair McNee, a Finance Broker. See below.

Study Loans for small amounts

RPC Loan

On average it takes between 20-26 hours to obtain your Recreational Pilot Certificate. All training at GoFly is competency-based and some students will achieve their RPC in less time and others may take longer.  

Our $6000 Study Loan covers 20 hours of flight training plus free theory, briefings, unlimited use of our simulator and the exams required to obtain your RPC. Students who take longer than 20 hours of flight training to pass their flight test, may require some additional personal funds to make up the difference between the loan and the final cost of their light training.

Study Loans is Australia’s first dedicated private student loan provider. They offer highly competitive rates, allowing you to borrow all or part of the course cost through a responsible funding method. You simply pay-as-you-go with simple terms & conditions.

Cross Country & Passenger Loan

Study Loans also provides loans to $5,400 for students who wish to obtain their Cross Country (also called Nav) and Passenger (Px) endorsements. This amount will cover 15 hours of navigation, including the nav flight test, and 5 hours of command time, including the passenger endorsement. This is the average time taken to pass your nav and passenger endorsement, but all training is competency-based and some people will achieve their endorsements in less time and others may take longer (and require some additional personal funds to make up the difference).

Command & Conversion Loan

Study Loans also provides loans to $5,900 for students who wish to build up their command time in order to be able to be eligible to do their Instructor rating or for any other reason.  All training is competency-based and some people will achieve their endorsements in less time and others may take longer (and require some additional personal funds).

Instructor Rating Loan

Study Loans also provides loans up to to $6,500 for pilots who would like to become Instructors. All training is competency-based and some people will achieve their endorsements in less time and others may take longer (and require some additional personal funds).

 Make sure you also read about our Instructor Rating and contact our CFI at GoFly to see if you qualify to become an Instructor. Check out our testimonial page to hear from some recent candidates.

Cancellation/withdrawal policy

All paid in advance flight training (either direct from a student or via Study Loans)  is non-refundable, however, under exceptional circumstances, GoFly may agree to provide a refund. In these instances, GoFly will charge a 30% cancellation fee to cover our admin expenses.

Middle-sized loans

We have teamed up with Mortgage Choice finance broker, Alistair, who is also a graduate of GoFly Aviation, to assist our students to access the most appropriate loans for their Commercial Pilot Licence. We believe that a personal loan can be paid off faster than a VET fee debt. Below we have listed the three types of training for which you can apply for a personal loan plus some repayment comparisons between VET fee and personal loans.
