Holiday Program

Joining our 4-day holiday program is a fantastic way to experience what flying is all about.

Lead by our professional flight instructors, young aviators will be immersed in aviation activities at the Club and have the opportunity to meet our friends from the RAC Helicopter Rescue, DFES, or Police Air Wing (dependant on call outs), learning more about the services they provide our vast state and of course seeing their aircraft!

They will learn radio procedures, navigation and how to conduct a pre-flight inspection before joining a 45-minute scenic flight over Perth beaches & over rottnest island.

All Young Eagles receive a gift bag containing a hat, high-vis vest and pen and will be awarded a certificate at the end of the week for completing the program.
