Always wanted to try flying a plane but never had a chance? You can now realise your dream to fly at Singapore’s very first private Flight School!

Formed by a group of experienced private aviators, Flight School is the only private school in Singapore. Additionally, it provides realistic training with sophisticated full-motion flight simulator.

Get Your Private Pilot Licence at Flight School

If you’ve seriously considered learning to fly, you would have thought that getting a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) is an unrealistic and unattainable dream.

Just thinking about how much you’ll have to pay in order to practice with a real plane would have made your knees go weak.

However, Flight School keeps the cost low, and your unattainable dream may just be possible!

At Flight School, they offer a comprehensive 12-week ground school in-classroom programme to help aspiring aviators like you prepare for the FAA (USA) Private Pilot Knowledge Test.

The best part of all, the full-motion Redbird MCX flight simulator is being used instead of a real plane, making it a whole lot more affordable to train for a license.

“By removing the need to practise in a real plane, it is possible for a learner pilot to prepare for the FAA Private Pilot test at a fraction of the time and cost of going the traditional route,” said Mr Lim who is, himself, a certified private pilot.  “Flight training is now more accessible, affordable, and within reach of anyone.”

 

Redbird MXC Flight Simulator

Learning to fly on a flight simulator?

It sure doesn’t sound like the real deal – it’s definitely different from manoeuvring a real plane, right?

Fret not, because this badass simulator accurately replicates the controls of single and twin engine aircrafts that are commonly used for flight training.

Furthermore, the Redbird can also be configured for advanced flight training, including multi-engine and instrument flight training.

Trainees can clock up time ‘abroad’, train under any weather conditions and ‘land’ at any airport in the world with this simulator.

It is very much cheaper than renting an aircraft, and a whole lot safer too!

By the time trainees get into a real plane, they will feel a sense of familiarity with the instrument layout, controls, and sensation of flying an aircraft.

Full Motion Flight Simulator Experience For Everybody

What if you’re interested to try but not keen on the license?

You can explore the joy of flying an aircraft from as short as 45 minutes to as long as 180 minutes!
