Learning to fly a glider is an exciting and satisfying experience. As a member of the Gliding Federation of Australia, Beverley Soaring Society provides a very comprehensive, structured, and safe program of flying training.
There are two great ways you can learn to fly at Beverley. You can:
- Learn to fly with our instructors on any weekend at your own pace (we operate most Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays), or
- Attend one of our regular Ab-Initio or “Learn to Fly” courses (see below)
Whichever way you choose to learn, our flying program covers pre-solo training, post-solo development, and cross-country coaching.
Please contact us for more information.
About Ab-Initio Courses
Our Ab-Initio courses are designed to give the beginner concentrated instruction running over a one week period or two consecutive weekends including at least one Friday. Other weekday training is sometimes available in association with cross country training weeks held during the soaring season.
Basic accommodation (at no charge) is available on the airfield or there are hotels and B&B options available in the nearby Beverley township.
Instructors and students at an Ab-Initio Course
To comply with Gliding Federation of Australia (GFA) policy, all instructors who interact with minors (under 18 year olds) hold a Western Australian Working with Children card. These must be renewed periodically with the relevant state government department.
