Bio: Lilydale Airport has been operating since 1968 and now provides a complete range of aviation services 24 hours, 7 days. Complete training at Lilydale specialises in flight training for GFPT, PPL and CPL as well as Night, Retractable, Multi-engine, Instrument and Aerobatic Ratings providing licence conversions for overseas pilots visiting Australia from the UK, US, Canada, Malta and Germany.

Since 1968 Lilydale has set an enviable record, training literally thousands of pilots to fly safely and professionally staff who have amassed over 30,000 hours between and in over 32 years of flying.

Lilydale Flying School operates one of the largest fleets in Victoria with Piper Warriors are used for basic training and Beechcraft Bonanzas are used as advanced trainers.

Trial Instructional Lesson with an instructor, giving students a 40 minute introductory flying lesson. First Solo normally after 10-15 hours of "dual" with a flight instructor. Students will have passed a medical by this stage and should also be learning some important aviation theory, either at home or one of the regular theory courses run at Lilydale.

The General Flying Progress Test (GFPT) is the first major licence, allowing students to fly family and friends around the Yarra Valley. It takes at least 15-20 hours of "dual" training with an instructor and 5-10 "solo" flying by yourself plus a small theory exam, therefore altogether a total of 35 to 40 hours.

The Private Pilot (PPL) is teaching to navigate around Australia by air. This requires another 25-35 hours of training and a CASA theory exam.

Advanced training if students want a career in aviation, the next challenge is a Commercial Pilot's Licence (CPL) and approvals giving you the freedom to fly larger, faster aircraft at night and in bad weather.
