When comparing costs between schools it is important to not just look at the price per hour of the flying lessons. Some schools may have "hidden" costs by charging for such things as briefings, landing fees or exams which are free at Caboolture Microlights. These could add almost $1000 to the total cost of your training. Read the small print before booking your first lesson !

Some schools also operate with limited or no aircraft insurance and may even require students to have purchased their own aircraft before they can fly solo. Caboolture Microlights aircraft are insured so that students can fly solo (even first solo!) in them

There is no need to pay in advance for your flying lessons - each flight is paid for after landing. Don't ever give a flying school more money up front than you are prepared to loose ! History suggests that it is nearly impossible to get your cash back

Caboolture Microlights does everything possible to keep our prices to the minimum we need to charge to stay in business. We didn't start this business to make a fortune so we will never ever price gouge a student. We do need to stop the banks from repossessing our homes but we won't be beaten on quality !
