Student Feedback

Signing up to begin my pilot’s career and obtaining my Commercial Pilot Licence through Soar Aviation has been the greatest decision I have made. Soar Aviation have been great, helping me through the enrolment stage, answering all my questions and taking me on a tour of the flight school prior to beginning the course. Since beginning the course, Soar has made me completely comfortable in this massive milestone I have begun which is a major help.

The instructors are friendly and patient and will take time to sit down with you for your post-flight briefing and discuss any questions you may have about each flight experience. Our theory classes are fun and interactive and give us all the knowledge required for safe flying. The aircraft are well maintained and clean to make your flight experience more enjoyable. I look forward to completing my Commercial Pilots Licence here!
