Hi maverick,


You could try some of these sites. There are pilot cadet courses that might be in the running for what you want.










Hope these help somewhat, Im not sure how you would go about working your way up through the ranks starting in RA-Aus. Maybe some other forum members could help you out.

Hi Maverick898,


Good for you that you have such healthy ambition.


You did say that you would like to get your commercial licence eventually, which presumes you might start with Recreation, GA, or even Gliding to learn the basics....don't dismiss gliding for the best stick and rudder skills acquisition....I've read that it is mandatory in some European Air forces.


Recreational flying is also a huge step toward your ambition.


In your region there are GA schools at Maitland and Cessnock as well as a couple of great Recreational flying instructors based at Cessnock. Gliding operations are a bit further away at Warkworth.


As far as quality instruction is concerned, there is a very highly regarded instructor who instructs from Cessnock, and more recently has become the CFI at Scone.


Every best wish and stay "super keen"...
