Central West Flying School operates in the fastest growing segment in Australian aviation, Recreational Flying, and also offers access to General and Commercial Aviation, in conjunction with Bathurst based Ward Air. Combined, we have instructors with a wide range of experience from hang gliding and ultralights right through to multi-engine general aviation and we operate modern aircraft in the recreational and general aviation categories. This provides the best possible instruction in the best surroundings, with reliable weather, at a reasonable price.

Central West Flying School and Ward Air have the benefit of being associated with the Bathurst Aero Club, an institution in the Bathurst Flying community that has been operating continuously since 1962. This adds diverse experience and other support to the schools and provides us and our students with access to comfortable licensed premises. The Club premises are able to cater for training groups of up to 20 people and social events of up to 80 people.
