Trial Instruction Flight (TIF)

ADVT_Jab 7314 Logo



This is the flight you have if you just want to visit us and “HAVE a GO” at flying one of our late model Jabiru training aircraft with a fully qualified Instructor.   This is a new Jabiru J170 in the picture above.

Experience a 1 hour flight where you will be encouraged to take the controls of the aircraft.  Your TIF could well be one of the most exciting things you’ve ever done!  Should you choose to continue flight training with us, many more exciting days are to follow!

A Jabiru aircraft (only if it is a J170, J230 or later model), is in the category of Light Sports Aircraft (LSA).  This is the type of powered flight training that we do at the Adelaide Soaring Club.

The J170 LSA is bigger than the earlier ‘ultra-light’ Jabiru models, they are also nicely balanced and stable in flight.  The J170 is strongly built (in Australia) and is an ideal training aircraft.

Flying Light Sport Aircraft is considered to be very safe when compared to many sports..  or riding and driving on the road.   LSA flying is also low cost compared to other private aircraft forms.

Light Sport Aircraft flying is the fastest growing form of aviation in the world today!
