Thanks for the advise, I have been reading other posts and these were the 2 that I was most interested in, so thats good. I plan to pop out to each one and meet the guys and make a decision from there, Archerfield is a little closer so that's a benefit. As for the one at Jacob's Well I did try to email and also use the contact us form on the site a few weeks ago and haven't heard back.
I live on the Gold Coast and have decided its time to follow a life long goal of learning how to fly. From my research a RA licence seems a good place to start. I have found a few places in SE QLD that do training and would like to go and have a look around, I would appreciate any advice for a newbie with no experience or knowledge.
