I used to fly through another school, but have now joined at Flightscope Aviation. Rod and the rest of the crew are so much more fun and friendly, I already felt like part of the crew, every instructor has been exceptional. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me.

What a fantastic experience.... I was grinning from ear to ear still a week later. This was a birthday gift from my wife -a learn to fly experience - and it was just that. Chris was absolutely fantastic and explained everything so clearly and gave me confidence as I was quite nervous at the beginning of the lesson. From start to finish I was hands on piloting my first ever flight, from taxiing.. take off.. manoeuvres and landing. I cannot thank Chris enough for this and I would love to follow-up with starting my recreational pilot licence... so see you soon guys. Thanks to the team at Flightscope Aviation. Cheers.

Wow where to start, I wish I found Flightscope earlier. To say learning to fly is fun would be an understatement. I have had the pleasure of learning along side both Rod and Chris, and it has been the most rewarding and amazing experience of my life. You just don't get this level of professionalism with other flight schools. Their approach is tailored to your ability, and they really go out of their way to make it a fun exciting learning experience. The quality of the aircraft is second to none, and i really feel safe each time i jump in the pilot seat. Rod and Chris's knowledge and skill is immediately apparent, and their friendly happy personality just makes the whole experience fantastic. I am half way through my pilot certificate and can not wait to get back in the cockpit and finish my training. I will strongly recommend Flightscope Aviation to anybody who has ever dreamed of flying, because these guys can help you realise your dream in the best way possible. Thanks guys.

Rod is a very professional operator and I highly recommend learning to fly at Flightscope. I completed my certificate with Rod and he's always good for a laugh and makes the learning environment enjoyable and relaxed. Anyone thinking of joining the exciting world of aviation should give flightscope a call and train with Rod.
