Learn to Fly

Learn to Fly

Learning to fly has never been easier or more affordable. Whether it is your desire to fly fixed wing or gyrocopters there is instruction available at Morningstar airfield to teach you to fly:

  • Weight shift microlights
  • 3-axis microlights
  • Light Sport aircraft
  • Gyrocopters
  • Private Pilots Licence allowing holders to fly aircraft up to an all up weight of 5,700kgs

Piloting of light aircraft is a skill that can be taught to almost anyone. However, learning to be an aviator takes practice, dedication and an awareness of the environment in which aircraft operate. That means becoming familiar with weather patterns, air traffic control, radio procedure, aircraft maintenance, safety, and a whole host of other factors that go towards making an experienced pilot. In general flying is a past time that is unforgiving of those that take short cuts but very rewarding to those who fly by the rules.

If you have a desire to learn to fly we suggest you visit the airfield and chat to a Committee member. Saturdays are the best day to come and experience the action and ask questions. Alternatively you can contact the flying schools based at the airfield directly:
