  • review rating 5  I completed my Cross Country Endorsement with Doug. It was great to have an instructor spend so much time and explain things so competently. I learned so much in a short amount of time, particularly about Electronic flight planning and OzRunways planning and general use which made life a lot simpler. I also learned some good Ded Reckoning and Stick n Rudder skills from Doug in the process!! I now fly regularly at Archer Falls because it’s such a friendly and relaxing place to be, and they have a great coffee machine!! Jim McKenzie

    thumb Adam Capps
  • review rating 5  A great place to learn to fly. Quiet, stunning location, yet not to far away from a bunch of other airstrips to experience higher traffic environments and/or learn new procedures. Doug’s a professional, experienced and patient instructor who lets you learn at a rate that suits your competency. Best of all: the aeroplane! Not something that you’ll get to fly at many schools which teaches true handling and controllability skills. Highly recommend. Thanks for the licence!
