Let your budding aviator take to the skies through a short 20-hour programme with SG Aviation Training.

The final element of the course will be letting the students test their skills on a Cessna 172 flight simulator where they can experience flying for the very first time.

Through the process of learning to fly, students develop skills such as situational awareness, multi-tasking and decision-making. Ultimately, they develop more confidence – an ability that will benefit them for life. The sky is literally the limit!
