Orange Flight Training is a Recreational School operating at Orange Airport. In July 2018, Senior Instructor Bryan Clements took over as owner, operator and CFI of the school. They are currently operating a Jabiru 160 aircraft with two additional Senior Instructors, and train pilots to the RA-Aus Pilot Certificate standard, including several endorsements. The school operates closely with Orange Aero Club.
Central West Flying operates from the upstairs section of Bathurst Aero Club, overlooking the main runway of the airport. They operate both Recreational and General Aviation aircraft, and can train to both RA-Aus and CASA syllabi.
This school has been working closely with CASA to develop the necessary documentation to become the first organization in Australia to receive training approval under the new Part 141 regulation.
Congratulations to Chris, Martin and the CWF Team for this great, pioneering achievement!
