Experience the thrill of flying! Three hours of professional flight training with a fully qualified flight instructor at Thunderbird Aero Service in Perth, Western Australia. Your training begins with the essentials of flying a DA20, such as climbing, descending, turning and the thrill of taking off and landing.
Imagine taking your favourite sports car and adding wings. That's the feeling you get when you strap into the two seat DA20 and take to the sky. Sporty, sleek and exciting, the DA20 offers outstanding performance, with impressive durability and economy, for personal flying and commercial training.
The DA20’s graceful lines and sporty looks belie its utility and durability. An incredibly fun aircraft to fly, the DA20-C1 earns its stripes in worldwide high utilization flight training day in and day out. It has been the standard and sole US Airforce pilot candidate initial flight screening aircraft for the past decade – enough said?
Flight schools worldwide appreciate the DA20’s robustness, performance, and ramp appeal. It’s used to train from first flight through night VFR and IFR (in VMC), including instructor ratings, thanks to the spin certification.
Its generous useful load, even well equipped, ample fuel capacity and comfortable cockpit make it a favorite of instructors, students and flight school operators alike. In continuous production for over 20 years, the DA20 has more than proven itself, with the accumulated experience of millions of flight hours, flown in all operating extremes, shaping the current model.
Thunderbird's training and mentoring operations focus on the intention to produce competent, qualified Commercial Pilots for our ongoing requirements, as well providing a source of pilots for client and related companies and for the aviation industry in general.
We encourage a high standard of presentation and conduct from our students and conduct all training with the intention of producing pilots with the skills required for immediate employment in the industry and not simply a paper qualification.
Through this 3 hour flying course in the DA20, our aim is to introduce you to the thrill of flying over 3 separate lessons of one hour each. Then if you believe that this is something you'd like to pursue, those 3 hours will be credited towards your ongoing flight training.
Come on future Captain!
