Nothing’s like the thrill of pure flight.

Take in a bird’s-eye view of the world, soaring with the clouds, carried high, far and wide on warm air currents, with the world laid out before you.

Experience the freedom and exhilaration of being airborne, chasing clouds as you’re carried high on the wind like a bird.

With a focus on training and safety, the Sports Aviation Federation of Australia (SAFA) helps build the skills and confidence so you can reach new heights safely.

Get Started

Embark on your flying journey: take an experience flight, complete a course with a SAFA approved school, become a licensed pilot (with some restrictions), and then join a local club to enjoy the thrill of pure flight and the camaraderie of the sport.

“I realise with a breathlessness that I am up and flying solo for the first time.”
