The RVAC training fleet consists of predominantly Cessna and Piper aircraft which are well known for their suitability as training aircraft and are the choice of many flight training organisations.
The constant-speed, retractable phase of the training is conducted in a Piper Arrow. Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating training is conducted either in our Piper Seminole or Partenavia aircraft.
RVAC is able to cross-hire a variety of other aircraft on an as-required basis.
Simulator training is an important part of any professional flight training syllabus. RVAC Flight Training operates both the CR-12 and DCX synthetic trainers produced by Precision Flight Controls. Both simulators are fully approved by CASA for use as a procedural trainer for both single and multi-engine operations.
These simulators provide excellent systems training and are also an effective tool for multi-crew procedures training.
Briefing Rooms/ Flight Planning Areas
RVAC Flight Training offers dedicated briefing rooms for pre and post flight briefings and Theory Class rooms with WiFi access.
We also employ the Flight School Manager (link) Program and electronic student records which can be accessed from the briefing rooms and updated promptly.
