Flight Training Essendon

Hey guy, looking at doing flight training at Essendon. Close to home so the extra costs will prob match up to fuel and travel time.. feel free to inbox me the good and bad experiences with the Essendon schools. Seems like one of the schools would like 50% up front or paid in full for rpl. Looking at going ppl eventually but wanted to learn close to home so I can get more than one lesson in a week. I know most of them use bacchus marsh training area but I guess Iím still learning as we are flying to bacchus marsh? Thanks for your imput and blue skys and safe flying to you all

CPL exam results summary

Does anyone know if when you complete all your CPL exams you are given a summary of results including passes and failures?
Upon completing a resit recently my print out with the KDR's made no mention of it being the second attempt! Just wondering how anyone would know how many attempts you've had.

A Pre-requisite report is requested by some airlines. It shows all results. You can obtain one from CASA for a fee.

BE 76 for MECIR

Anyone know of a Beech Duchess for hire around the place? Iím looking for one to dry hire to complete a Multi engine Instrument Rating. They seem to be a bit tricky to find for hire only.

Starting Advice

Hi there. Google search is your friend when it comes to particular companies. There are also a few good aviation sites that offer advice to guys and girls just starting out. ProAviationTips has a pretty good article about sussing out prospective flight schools called choosing a flight school near me or something like that. There is a good list of questions at the end to ask the staff when you meet them for the first time

Best Perth flight school??

Hi guys,

Was wondering what the general consensus is for the best flight school in Perth, WA?

I did a few hours at Thunderbirds a couple years ago but had to stop due to some personal / work issues, and it seemed quite good there but not sure if it is still around.

I'm now in a position where I can fully work towards my CPL, so any advice on the best school would be great.

Question How to get a look inside a Gulfstream?

CPL student pilot here (currently have my PPL)
I aspire to someday fly a Gulfstream Jet & would really love to see one up close in real life.
What would be the best way to go about this?
I live in Brisbane so YBAF, YBBN, & YBSU are all within driving distance for me.

I'm hoping maybe a Gulfstream pilot frequent this forum & perhaps could invite me to take a look?
Would of course be happy to shout a few beverages once off duty. it would be great to hear about your experience as a Gulfstream pilot.

Or should i try reach out to a charter company & ask them directly?
I worry if I'm not a paying customer, they would just see me as a waste of their time.

Thanks for your time.
