General Aviation Programs


Adelaide Flight Training Centre (AFTC) is a subsidiary of Flight Training Adelaide (FTA). Like FTA it is recognised internationally for delivering quality pilot training. AFTC has been preparing self-funded pilots for a career in aviation since 1996.

Whether you are interested in the exciting challenge of learning to fly or in a career as commercial pilot, we can assist you at the AFTC. We cater for part-time students and operate seven days a week.

Should you have queries please contact us

How to become a career pilot

Even without an offer of employment from an airline, you can attain the required flying licences to be eligible for future employment:

PPL Private Pilot Licence

CPL Commercial Pilot Licence

ME CIR Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating

ATPL Airline Transport Pilot Licence

Note: Multi-crew pilot licence is not available without an airline sponsored program.

A student does not require any formal qualifications to train as a pilot (other than English). It is, however, beneficial to have an educational background in maths and physics to assist with the course.

Trial Instructional Flight (TIF)

introductory flight
If you are uncertain about flying as a career, or you just want to have the experience of flying an aircraft, why not take a TIF with us at the AFTC? You will be controlling the aircraft under direct supervision of an instructor, following the same sequence as a normal instructional flight, which includes a pre-flight briefing, aircraft pre-flight inspection and the relevant air exercise.

To do a trial flight, please select an option below. A TIF booking request should be made 6 days before the required booking date.
