Covid-19 Update

As per the latest state government COVID lock down rules, we are temporarily suspending lessons and joy flights from Friday 16th until Tuesday the 20th of July inclusive and we expect to re-open on Wednesday, subject of course, to any further details announced by the State Government.

We'll switch over to lock down mode again, and will run Study Group over Zoom on Monday night and we will update you on any changes as we become aware of them.  Any scheduled lessons or flights will be rescheduled, please be patient as we have a lot of people to contact!

The airport itself will remain open as it's classed as an essential service and charter operations for essential purposes will continue.  Masks are mandatory if you are attending the airport for any reason. Please help our office staff by remembering to bring and wear them.

We will let you know more as we know more.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding,

Jono and the staff at the Lilydale Flying School.

Where are they now - Jack Terry

LFS stays in touch with many of our past students as they progress through the world of aviation. Last week one of our former students achieved his wings with the RAAF after a very interesting journey.Jack Terry did his TIF with us in January 2011 and achieved his General Flying Progress Test (now RPL) in September while finishing Year 12. Working hard as a tennis coach and later as a baggage handler at Tullamarine he completed his PPL in April 2012 and then steadily built experience over the next year and a half including getting his tailwheel and aerobatic ratings and flying friends up to the Birdsville Races.
