Recommended Posts

How is it RAAus aircraft are being used for other than recreational training purposes? (training aspiring professional pilots from the get go)

Soar won't be missed. They swamped us in Bendigo. Their touch and go's, clogged up the circuit and students had poor English!

 Assuming of course that they manage to pass the CPL test.. Having met the requirements to sit it  is a Pre cursor. No one can guarantee a candidate will pass (If it's all above board). Nev

I think they work out that you need to be earning a certain amount of income to start paying the loan back.

It would appear that they use RAAus for training up to RAAus Pilot Certificate with cross-country and pax endorsements, then move over to VH- aircraft for CSU, retractable and multi conversions. I wonder which type of aircraft they use for building hours for the CPL licence.

But surely they had all the ELP they needed.

 

An aviation ELP assessment involves a candidate being tested on their ability to communicate in English in the aviation environment, where safety is paramount. The assessment involves two-way communications between the assessor and the candidate, and covers:

  • pronunciation
  • grammatical structures and sentence patterns
  • vocabulary
  • fluency
  • comprehension
  • interactions while communicating.

Derrrrrrrrr...I was trying to understand (Asian accent) I'm not at all racist but when it means I'm in a circuit with another aircraft and have no idea what they are doing it worry's me!

We get twins from Ballarat overhead here all the time, Asian accents. They must be doing multi endorsements and IFR.

I see elsewhere on the internet that some ex-students have made statements explaining how they were allegedly ripped off.

I'm questioning the DATE in your post.. Nev

It’s straight off the Australian site. I just printed it to a PDF hence the format.

I see SOAR resumed operations on 8/11/29. 

I think this is what is being referred to.
