flight training in singaporeFrequently Asked Questions

  • Why does the student have to do the flying in New Zealand and not in Singapore?

Singapore airspace is very busy due to our booming commercial airport. While the rest of the airspace are controlled by the military and hence, there isn’t any decent flight training spaces in Singapore.

New Zealand is chosen as they follow very well-regulated flight training rules which provides a very safe environment for training. Their strict standards also help to ensure the students are guided and trained by qualified instructors, with well-maintained aircrafts.

 

  • Why is there so much a cost difference between flying helicopters and airplanes?

Helicopters are more complex and hence also more costly to operate. They also burn more fuel than normal airplanes.

 

  • How much will the extra cost be for the travel to New Zealand for the training?

The extra would be estimated as the below:

  • Return air ticket to NZ & air/land transfer – $1200 to $2000
  • Accommodation – $300 onwards per week depending on accommodation type
  • Meals – $5 to $15 per meal
  • Medical examination – $150 to $200

 

  • When will the travel dates and other course arrangements be finalized?

All additional arrangements will be done within the first 3 weeks of the course.

 

  • What if I decided not to pursue with the course half way, would I be refunded?

There will be a non-refundable fee of 30% of the course fee as long as you have not confirmed and booked your flight ticket to NZ for the training. Depending on which stage you back out, there could be additional charges.

 

  • How sure are we that the training done here can be accredited to any further flight training in future?

All hours and flight training hours are documented in the Pilot Log Book. As long as your future training is relevant to what you have done with us, the hours will be counted internationally.

 

  • I have an eye-sight issue, I do not have perfect eye-sight. Can I still participate?

Yes. You do not need perfect eye-sight to fly an aircraft.

 

  • Can females join the course? I’m really interested to become a pilot.

Gone are the days where only males can be pilots. As long as you are above 16, we welcome you.
