    We are governed by Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and operate only Gereral Aviation aircraft (the aircraft are bigger, sturdier and the maintenance is very strict)
    The flying can be recorded in the logbook and will be counted towards the Private/Commercial license.
    We operate out of Essendon Airport. Located approximately 20 minutes from Melbourne CBD.

    Soar are governed by Recreational Avaition Australia (RA-Aus) and operate recreational aviation aircraft-(the aircraft are lighter, and smaller, maintenance requirements are not strict compared to general aviation)
    The flying cannot be recorded towards Private/Commercial license.
    Operation out of Moorabbin Airport. Located approximately 50 minutes from Melbourne CBD.

    I hope this is helpful!

      So OP has a bigger one then.

    • I hope this is helpful!

      Thanks for the clarification.

    • Yep. Understood re size of aircraft

    • Many Rec aircraft are a lot newer and modern than any Tomahawk; the last of which was manufactured in 1982.

      The only light aircraft I hated flying more than a PA38 was a Cherokee 140.

    I paid full price few months ago :-( but worth every penny - Highly recommended @ this price.

  • This is a pretty standard price that country aero clubs have all year round for a TIF in a 172. My local has been $99 for as long as I can remember. Intentionally cheaper than normal hire to get you in the door with the hope you will sign up as a student.

    The bargain here is that it is out of Essendon in controlled airspace where the half of the cost will get chewed up in the high air services tower fees and the high Essendon airport landing fees. You get some nice city scenery for your troubles.

    If you want to pick where you go and / or get more time hands on, pick a country areo club. If you don't mind having part of your flying time chewed up getting out of controlled airspace, this is not a bad option.
