Melbourne Flight Training will provide you with the highest standards of flight training and customer service available. We achieve this through highly experienced and dedicated Instructors aiming towards successful outcomes with your flight training; be it professional or recreational.

Melbourne Flight Training is owned and operated by Glen Buckley (Director). Glen works in the role of Chief Flying Instructor and Chief Pilot and has over 25 years of experience in many varied roles.

Melbourne Flight Training offers flight instructional training for the issue of the Australian Recreational Pilot’s Licence, Private Pilot’s Licence, Commercial Pilot’s Licence, Night Rating, Instructor Rating and the Command Instrument Rating. We also offer Design Feature Endorsements, Flight Activity Endorsements, training for Proficiency Checks and Flight Reviews. We are approved by the Australian Government to provide training for both local and overseas students in a friendly and nurturing environment.

The concept of Melbourne Flight Training came from many years of the original Director’s combined personal experience within the aviation industry at both the flying training and airline level. Melbourne Flight Training has been established since 2006 and grown significantly to date. From our humble beginnings we now have in excess of 20 full time Instructors and a modern fleet of approximately 20 aircraft. Our highly experienced Instructors come from a diverse background within the industry. Many have chosen to make instructing their career.

Whilst it is crucial students are constantly aware of where their training fits into their overall career, we recognised that many schools don’t provide the ongoing monitoring, feedback and motivational guidance that is required during training. Student’s preferences for their career path may change during their training as they become exposed to many facets of the industry. For that reason we adopted an interactive and consultative program that remains flexible and responds to changing preferences.

We design a program in conjunction with individual student’s that provides the best value flying training program available. We provide you with all the available support and resources needed to reach your full potential as a qualified pilot and achieve your career goals.

You will leave Melbourne Flight Training with a solid foundation of skill, knowledge and contacts that will give you the true tools as you embark on your employment journey into an exciting and professional industry.

More than just training…

At Melbourne Flight Training we also recognise that an important part of any flight training program is to expose students not only to the training environment, but also provide them with the opportunity to interact with industry working airline pilots. With this in mind, we have developed a social area consisting of a pool table, plasma TV, Foxtel, table tennis and a bar for after hours socialising. This area opens out onto the upper level balcony which overlooks the runways. On Friday nights staff, students and guests get together for a BBQ and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere; friends and family are particularly welcome.

  • I moved to Melbourne from Sydney in December 2008. I had 220 hours and a brand new instructor rating. After getting ignored by all other schools at Moorabbin, Glen Buckley gave me a warm welcoming handshake, made me a cup of coffee, sat down with me and gave me some of his time. He didn’t […]
