Classroom Equipment

Our classroom is located at Hangar N Wirraway Drive Redcliffe Airport Brisbane Queensland, it is fitted with the very latest in electronic equipment. A state-of-the-art SONY data projector allows PowerPoint presentations, animated graphics, videos, TV and live access to the internet. The animated graphics and digital video are all produced in-house and have become an important feature of our teaching method. The course is based on Bob Tait's well known CPL and IREX study guides and the fee includes access to our very successful exam preps for that subject. In spite of all this electronic 'stuff', Bob Tait still insists on personally teaching every CPL and IREX course and his faithful old pen and white board are ever present to cope with the inevitable 'good question.'

CASA Cyber Examinations

Whilst the PPL examinations are available at most flying schools, CASA has excluded all flying schools and theory providers from acting as providers for the IREX or CPL examinations. The CPL and IREX examinations are available by arrangement with an approved provider. CASA has appointed a New Zealand company, Assessment Services Pty Ltd as the provider for the whole of Australia. You can find details of examination venues and operating hours at their web site.
