A TIF (Trial Flight) is the best way to introduce yourself, a family member or friend to aviation. A 30 minute Trial Flight over the South Coast beaches costs $80 and you (or your friend) get the opportunity to take control of the plane and are shown some basic flight skills by a fully qualified instructor.

Become a Club Member for just $55 per year and enjoy flight training lessons & private hire with the Moruya Aero Club in the Club’s Gazelle from:
$165 per hour with an instructor
$125 per hour solo once you have achieved your RAAus Recreational Pilots Certificate

On average, it would cost around $2000 (or 10-15 hours of training) to be ready for your first solo and then another $2000 to be ready for your RAAus (recreational) licence. We usually expect around 25-30 hours for pilots who train consistently to achieve their licence. Obviously all that changes though depending on skill level and confidence but it should give you a rough estimate anyway. Best of all, you can pay as you go, so you don’t have to worry about a huge debt just to get your foot in the door. You can achieve your dream of flight!

The Skyfox Gazelle is a light 2 seat training aircraft designed and built in Queensland. It’s our favourite plane at Moruya for training because of its reliability, simplicity and docile handling qualities. Gazelles are not speed demons, cruising at around 65 knots (120km/h), but they’re well respected and excel in training environments where minimal distractions and less complexity is preferred.
