Go on a discovery flight with one of our instructors to get a feel for what it's like to be a student pilot!


If you aren't 100% sure about whether flight training is right for you,  a 1 hour discovery flight is the perfect way to dip your toes in the water. Once out of controlled airspace, your instructor will walk you through some basic maneuvers and let you try your hand at flying! If this is something you are interested in, book now.

The sentiment that "time flies" was happened upon while flying. 3 hours passes in the blink of an eye! We have had many people return for more, with some making aviation their hobby or career.

SATC offers on-site simulator training using an ALSIM AL-200 and a Redbird FMX. They are advanced flight simulators that allows our students to test, improve and perfect their skills in a cost-effective manner that is unaffected by poor weather conditions.

Both are Level 2 Flight Training Devices, suitable for IFR training, including IPCs!
