Learn to fly with Thomas Aviation

Thomas Aviation was founded in 2009 to become a premier flight training facility in Western NSW. Thomas Aviation employs 3 instructors to provide flight training at both Dubbo and Orange airports.

Completing your flight training with Thomas Aviation has many advantages:

  • Competitive pricing
  • Traffic density in Dubbo and Orange is low, so you can be in the air in as little as 5 mins of starting the engine – saving you money!
  • There is no transit to our training areas, so we can complete lessons in much less time – sometimes even saving 10-20mins per lesson! (compared to training in Moorabbin or Bankstown)
  • Flight tests are conducted in house so you don’t have to travel.
  • Weather allows for 300+ flying days each year.

Trial Introductory Flight

A Trial Introductory Flight (TIF) is a great way to experience flying an aircraft for the first time with an instructor. It will be structured like a flight lesson with a pre and post flight briefing and you will have the chance to operate the flight controls yourself under the guidance of a flight instructor.


Private Pilot Licence

The Private Pilot Licence (PPL) allows you to fly as pilot in command of a single engine aircraft anywhere in Australia. It is a milestone for any pilot and your first trip with your friends and family after completing this course will be something to look forward to!



Thomas Aviation conducts flight training for the issue of Manual Pitch Propeller Control (MPPC), Retractable Undercarriage (RU) and Tailwheel Undercarriage (TWU) endorsements.


Night VFR Rating

Flying at night is something every pilot should experience! The Night VFR Rating is a great addition to a Private Pilot Licence especially since you won’t have to stress about missing last light at your destination.
