Tasmania – a superb place to learn to fly

We are located near Hobart, Tasmania’s capital city. Hobart is one of the most live-able cities in Australia with affordable accommodation options, a vibrant community and a superb and varied natural environment. Our island state is clean, tourist-friendly and has a relatively low-cost of living.

The local people are friendly and welcoming to overseas visitors. Many of the local people speak English as a first language, giving students  a good environment to develop their English proficiency, which is important for aviation careers.

Hobart Airport has many airline flights per day connecting to other states in Australia. Hobart is a short one hour flight from Melbourne, which is our closest international airport.
