Hi 002_wave.gif.62d5c7a07e46b2ae47f4cd2e61a0c301.gif,

 

Just joined this form. I'm from the UK but working in Karratha, Western Australia at the moment where I'm also training towards a PPL. Moving down to Perth in a few weeks so will be looking for a new flight school to continue my training.

 

I've been flying a Cessna 172 and would be interested to hear from anyone else who has experience of Perth flying schools :thumb_up:

I can't help you with flying schools in Perth, as i'm in Sydney, but i'm sure others in the area can point you in the right direction.

 

I'm an expat too, of over thirty years, and I bet you love seeing more blue skies.

 

Keep us posted as to how youre going.

 

Regards

 

Planey

Try the aero club (RACWA) at Jandakot. They use 152's and 172's mostly. There are one or two other schools along the strip down there, but I don't know much about them.

Cheers guys,

 

Booked in for a few lessons with one of the flying schools at Jandakot. Should be interesting flying in busy, controlled airspace after doing all my training so far in Karratha!

If you want to train in a 'country' environment, try Bunbury Flying School or the Bunbury Aero Club, 90 mins driving from Perth
