Online Theory Courses

We are delighted to be able to offer you two online theory classes commencing NEXT WEEK using Zoom to connect to the classroom.  Both courses are capping their sizes to 10 to ensure everyone gets plenty of interaction!

The RPL(A)/BAK course will run for 9 weeks on Mondays with two class times - one at 2.00pm  and then again at 6.30pm.  (To limit group size and also maximise availability) On Tuesdays there will be a follow up Tutorial (Time TBC) to go through homework questions etc.  Cost is $350 and the main prerequisite  is the Bob Tait RPL/BAK Book 1 - Kickoff is Monday next week April 13.

The PPLA/RA Cross Country course will run for 12 weeks* starting next Wednesday April 15 at 6pm with a followup Tutorial on Thursdays (Time TBC) to go through homework questions etc.  It will also be based around the Bob Tait RPL/PPL Book 2 and is designed to cover all the new areas you'll need to know to pass your PPL theory test. (It is expected you have previously passed the RPLA/BAK exam) Cost is $750 which includes a hard copy of the entire course notes, all online material, 400+ practice questions and the option to resit the course if necessary.

* We are also considering offering the PPL Theory over 6 weeks intensively which would involve 2 Classes and 1 Tutorials per week - let the desk know if that would suit you better.

We have info sheets on both courses for you to look at or call the desk for more details or to book your spot.

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.
