Come and learn to fly with us in Adelaide

We love flying and are passionate about all aspects of flight training. We focus on providing you with a fun, safe and professional place to learn and experience the joy of flying and the experience of becoming a pilot. Learn how to fly with us today.

We understand adult learning principles and we know not everyone learns or progresses at the same pace, nor do they want to. We understand you are an individual and we respect that - in fact that’s where we specialise and because we have a female instructor we warmly welcome potential female pilots or those who just want to give it a go to see what all the fuss is about. 

We know that sharing knowledge and past experiences consolidates your learning and... everyone likes a good story! Come fly with us, become a pilot. Learn to fly and achieve your dream. Start the experience with us today - one small step at a time.

You will be part of a very friendly aviation community that will help and support you through your learning to fly journey and beyond.

Strathalbyn Airfield (YSYN) is located between the historic towns of Strathalbyn and Langhorne Creek, approximately 50 minutes drive from Adelaide. The scenery is fantastic from above and encompasses Strathalbyn, Milang, Clayton, Hindmarsh Island, Inman Valley, the Southern Mt. Lofty Ranges, the Murray Mouth, the Coorong, and the Great Lakes (Alexandrina and Albert).

Our Airfield is privately owned and PPR (prior permission required) which gives us a very safe and controlled environment in which to learn and we love flying with the trikes in circuit. Landing fees apply.

We care about you and your progress and will help you to achieve your flying dreams, tick it off the 'bucket list', make it a career or a hobby. Come and see us soon and I personally look forward to meeting you - the YouTube video will show you how to find us. If you are using a GPS, enter intersection of Cheriton and Angas Plains Rds, Langhorne Creek, then continue down Angas Plains Rd to 479.
There is always something happening around the area, either on the ground or in the air. This hot air balloon pictured on the right is one of many often sighted in the area on a calm still morning. I was lucky enough to snap this one on the way to airfield.

WHALE WATCHING: Adelaide's whale watching season is normally from mid May to October - In 2013 the season started early and we sighted approx 13 whales off Basham Beach). In 2014 we saw 2 early in the season but none since. 2015 and the whales are out again.

Normally the whales can be sighted off the coastline any where from Victor Harbor to the Murray Mouth and every where in between - so if this excites you, there is another good reason to come for a fly soon and bring your camera with you.

The News link keeps you up to date with current aviation related activities and anything else we think you may be interested in.Updated 17/10/15

GIFT VOUCHERS: Come and experience a TIF Flight Experience - purchase a gift voucher for yourself or a friend today.

Have you always wanted to learn to fly? Together we can plan your flight training program, ground theory lessons and pre-examination study.

We provide individual and classroom based flight theory sessions so you learn in the method most effective for your learning style. In group sessions you get to interact with other students and pilots on the same journey as yourself.

The original website was developed in 2009 out of my passion for flying, teaching and sharing knowledge as an educator. As the bug bit me (and bit me bad)... I kept taking the journey further and further. It finally lead me to opening my own flying school - - an approved RA-Aus Flight Training Facility so come and learn to fly with us today as I continue to share the fun and my knowledge! I invite you to have fun and explore this site or become an affiliate member.
