SOAR’s Instructor training program was a huge benefit to my career. The people I trained and work with all have similar aviation goals which made it easier and after the course was finished, I managed to rock up over 70 hours instructor time within the first month!
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to get experience quicker than anywhere else.Kieren Struck
Instructor rating at soar aviation got me back to flying after 2 years of break. Professional senior instructors trained me to become a mature, responsible pilot and a person.Danny Oh
