Learn to fly with the experienced team at Central West Flying

At Central West Flying we provide world-class, customised aviation training solutions for the fixed wing industry.

Located at Bathurst Airport, New South Wales just two and a half hours from Sydney. The flight training school started operations in 2004 and operates from modern facilities within the Bathurst Aero Club.

Providing customised aviation training solutions, our training ethos is focused on producing high quality social and private pilots to guiding our future airline pilots rather than simply training cadets to obtain a licence. To achieve this we have made, and continue to make, considerable infrastructure and asset investments to supply appropriate aircraft and simulators for training.

We cater for self paced private training and self-funded students and offer a full range of services, including selection, ab initio and advanced training courses.

Our highly trained and committed staff ensure that the environment and content of our courses exceed the expectations of our customers. Our team includes military aviation veterans, commercial pilots that have worked and managed aircraft around Australia and the World in many challenging environments. The management team can guide you in buying and operating your own aircraft as you advance in your flying capabilities. We provide safety pilots and aircraft management solutions for our customers and can put the fun back in flying.

Whether you are aiming for the airlines, general aviation, a business aircraft solution or simply flying for fun we have the course for you.
