Getting Started

Where do I begin?

Getting started is easier than you think! Call, email or use the website to book in for your first flying experience - a Trial Introductory Flight. Once you have been out and experienced the passion of flight on your TIF and decided that flying is for you, there are a few steps to take to get you on the way to earning your wings. To avoid unnecessary interruptions to your training, it is recommended that you take care of the following requirements as soon as practical once you have made the decision to learn to fly. Our team are happy to assist if you have any questions or require assistance to complete any of these steps.

The first steps

What is an ARN and why do I need one?

An ARN is an Aviation Reference Number. It is similar to an account number or customer number and it should be quoted whenever you call CASA. It is your own unique identifier. If you hold a licence or permission you will find in most cases that the number on the licence or permission is the ARN belonging to the entity that holds that licence or permission.

In most cases you will be able to apply for your ARN on the same application as your ASIC, however some circumstances will require an application to be completed at a different time.

Your aviation career is cleared for takeoff
