Flight Training Facilities

Registered HGFA flight training facilities (FTF) are the way to learn to fly HGFA aircraft.
All schools are required to conform to the HGFA (and CASA) minimum standards for equipment,
operational systems, certification and ongoing support.

It is the role of the FTF to train and qualify Supervised Pilots or Pilot Certificate holders to fly capably on their own within the limits of their experience and skill and be able to extend their flight experience and skills in a progressive manner. FTF's then refer new pilots to a local HGFA affiliated Club, making sure the newly qualified pilot doesn't become isolated and continues to gain experience under the guidance of club officials.

Most FTF's run sessions to take you to the next level of proficiency also organising tours and specialist clinics,
providing endorsement training such as VHF Radio Operator, Towing, Motored Flight,
Cross-Country Flying, SIV Manoeuvres
and various others.
