How safe are small aircraft? Is flight training safe? Will I get airsick?

There is a certain amount of risk in everything we do. Flying an aircraft has some degree of risk, and for that reason, they must be treated with care and respect. If you learn to fly safely with experienced and professional instructors then you will go a long way towards reducing that risk. Your safety and that of the aircraft and its occupants is the most important objective for our instructors. All of our aircraft are maintained to the highest Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) standards. Statistically, flying is actually safer than driving a car on the road!

Airsickness is completely dependant on the individual. Some people will have a tendency to feel airsick initially, but as time passes and you feel more confident in the aircraft the chance of feeling sick is significantly reduced. If you have previously suffered motion sickness it’s best to let your instructor know.
