Adjusting to the "new horizon" at LFS

We hope you are well and have kept your personal balance ball "in the middle" during these confronting times.  Thankfully it is slowly becoming apparent that the worst is behind us although we will all be adjusting to a "new horizon" for some time.

Many LFS pilots have made great progess by studying at home while many more are logging on to the great RPL Theory (nee BAK) and PPL Theory courses running via Zoom on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

After careful consideration of Federal and State government advice, we are again taking bookings for all flight training.  We do this whilst asking everyone to continue to take all appropriate precautions, namely:

  • Disinfecting of all aircraft each day
  • Providing of facemasks for anyone who would like them, and
  • Asking anyone having had KNOWN CONTACT with a COVID-19 patient (or displaying any cold/flu-like symptoms) to not come out in person

We STRONLY URGE all students to acquire their own headset (doesn't have to be a flashy Bose one) as its difficult to disinfect the earmuffs of our own headsets.

Lastly, we recognise that all clients have their own individual circumstances which may or may not make it possible for them to fly at the present time.

Thank you for your support of our small business.

Where are they now - Jack Terry

LFS stays in touch with many of our past students as they progress through the world of aviation. Last week one of our former students achieved his wings with the RAAF after a very interesting journey.Jack Terry did his TIF with us in January 2011 and achieved his General Flying Progress Test (now RPL) in September while finishing Year 12. Working hard as a tennis coach and later as a baggage handler at Tullamarine he completed his PPL in April 2012 and then steadily built experience over the next year and a half including getting his tailwheel and aerobatic ratings and flying friends up to the Birdsville Races.
