Australian National Airline college
Australian National Airline College specialises in fixed wing aeroplane flying lessons. We offer high quality flying lessons to anyone wanting to learn how to fly.
Our Aviation School is located at Moorabbin Airport in Melbourne, the place for all aspiring airline pilots to learn to fly.
Learning to fly is not difficult and anyone with good general health and reasonable coordination skills can take advantage of our structured flying lessons that make learning to fly a breeze.
Your training will start with flying lessons that teach basic skills like, straight & level flight, turning, taxiing, climbing & descending, take off & landing. Once these skills are mastered our aviation school will then move on to stage 2 of your learning to fly, the Navigation Training. These flying lessons will teach you how to navigate by the use of Visual Flight Rules (VFR). VFR flight means you must look out the window of your aircraft and use your map to identify landmarks like rivers, roads, towns, railway tracks, lakes, coastlines, power transmission lines etc to navigate by. By its very definition, VFR means you must be able to stay visual and cannot fly in cloud. Upon completion of stage 2, you will be issued a Private Pilot Licence.
For the vast majority of our overseas students who are learning to fly, the aim of joining our aviation school is to become a Commercial Airline Pilot. Therefore those wanting to move on to this career, must continue with their learn to fly program and continue flying lessons towards the Commercial Pilot Licence.
Before being issued a Commercial Pilot Licence, the trainee must pass 7 commercial theory exams, build a minimum 70 hours solo flight time (also known as pilot in command or PIC) and undertake further dual flying lessons to reach the required standard before being recommended for a flight test.
Upon successful completion of all required flying lessons and theory exams and the CPL flight test, the applicant is issued a Commercial Pilot Licence which means they can be paid to fly a commercial aircraft under VFR conditions.
As you can imagine, for anyone who has decided to learn to fly to become an Airline Pilot, the VFR technique will not be suitable for the operation of an advanced airliner in all weather conditions.
For this reason the flying lessons must continue.
As we have been using Single Engine Aircraft for all training through to the end of CPL, the next step will be teach you to fly a twin engine aircraft – known as a “Multi Engine Endorsement”. Our aviation school has several multi engine aircraft however for the initial stages of learning to fly a twin, we generally use the Piper Seminole.
Once you have completed this training, we then use the multi engine aircraft to undertake the final stage with further flying lessons for the Instrument Rating. The Instrument Rating teaches those learning to fly the techniques used under Instrument Flight Conditions (IMC) so that they can navigate from point A to point B by use of the aircraft instruments and other navigation aids located on the ground and in space.
Once you’re Instrument Rating is issued, you then have the qualifications “Commercial Pilot Licence with Multi Engine Instrument Rating” the minimum qualifications to apply for an airline.
