Having just commenced flight training for a RPC with a local flight school and then getting hit with a COVID lockdown, your videos are a vital part of what I need to retain my learning and prepare for future lessons ahead of the lifting of restrictions.
Great work on the AvPlan quizzes. The site is so fabulous now with the amount of content you have displayed.
Every student that watches these videos before their flight with me, usually starts the lesson on a high note, and grasps the entire lesson much faster than students that only have the generic pre-flight briefing on a white board.
Nathan Slee, Chief Pilot
I wanted to endorse the GoFly Online video subscription service as a must-have for the aspiring student and new pilot.
I was able to move through my RPC and Cross Country endorsement with a level of confidence and belief that came from the video series. My instructor was terrific and I found that accessing the videos in between lessons allowed me to visualise what I was likely to experience in the cockpit throughout the syllabus. This was invaluable. The videos can be watched over and over until you are able to understand the importance of each step and component of the syllabus.
As a new and inexperienced pilot, I intend maintaining my subscription to provide me with a go-to source of information around all aspects of flying. There will always be a need to revise procedures and the GoFly platform is ideal for this.
I have no doubt my training would have taken longer and been more stressful if I hadn’t utilised this terrific tool.
Well done Damien and Team

Wanted to let you know that I think you’re producing some great content and I enjoy see you on my Twitter feed!
Adam Utz, Flight Schedule Pro (United States)
Those videos; they are awesome. I don’t know how many times I’ve watched the lessons and also moved the cursor back and watched a particular bit over and over until I understood the concept. Those flight schools that don’t have videos like these, I reckon they are at a great disadvantage.
Marcel, GoFly Graduate
My flight training has been amazing. The videos have helped me so much and I don’t think I could be progressing without them. All the information is right at my fingertips before I even sit the cockpit because of the GoFly Online stuff.
I find they are great for watching when you are exercising or when you are wanting to learn but in a less intense way eg. when you’re a bit tired. It’s a great refresher.
It has been awesome to have access to these videos to pass the time during lockdown! I have used them to complement my nav study (using the Bob Tait book).
The some highlights for me have been:
- The flight planning lessons (in the cross country series), particularly the one about filling out a flight plan and using NAIPS. So far this hasn’t been something covered in Bob Tait so it was new to me. It would be great if we could download an electronic copy of the table used to complete the flight plan to practice. I have drawn up my own table with a pen and a ruler based on the one in the lesson. I have been using this to practice navs to all the places I want to be able to fly to eventually.
- The Oz Runways intro videos were great. Definitely has helped me to get the most out of that app.
- Controlled airspace flight/lesson – I never thought I would want to do my controlled airspace endorsement but that video has made me reconsider. It was great having someone explain what was going on with each of the calls. I would definitely love to see more flights like that into controlled airspace with someone explaining.
- The videos from the cockpit of the student doing various tasks involved in the cross country flight were very beneficial. It enabled me to visualise myself in the cockpit and imagine juggling flying the aeroplane with navigating.
Adel, Melbourne pilot in lockdown during COVID -19
Really enjoyed the content. I really enjoyed the TV series. Thanks
Thank you for your Pre-flight video, although I fly a Foxbat I still picked up a few tips from your video.
Thank you again.
Joel, Melbourne pilot in lockdown
I found the GoFly Online content very useful. I particularly enjoy watching flight lessons as they help a lot to visualize how to go about certain manoeuvres, and the interview with the Gulfstream pilot was really insightful and motivating.
A special mention for the video of the actual engine failure. That definitely encouraged me to go over and over my forced landing procedures. That video is invaluable!
Thanks once again.
Ross, Melbourne pilot in lockdown
I am an RPL pilot currently working on my Nav and CTA endorsements and these courses are incredibly helpful and are proving invaluable to my training. Not only are they Australian-based which makes them much more relevant than overseas online courses, but the content is very thorough, with each stage broken down into easy-to-follow sections. Well done!
From our feedback form
‘I would like to personally thank you for creating your GoFly Online learning program and offering student pilots like myself the ability to continue learning 24/7 in the comfort of their own home. After wanting to learn to fly for many years I stumbled upon the GoFly Online lessons. Hesitant at first to purchase them, I took the leap and purchased the online program. I now watch the lessons on a regular basis and have found it to be the most professional, informative, educational and affordable online flying syllabus available and is a valuable resource to anybody looking to learn to fly or is currently doing flying lessons. The GoFly online lessons are great for refreshing your memory before your next hands-on lesson and they give you a clear insight into what your instructor will be wanting you to do in order to fly accurately and safely to obtain your pilot certificate. When learning to fly, you are taking in so much new information in each lesson, so this is a fantastic way to relax and look at the key points of a lesson slowly and at ease, and you can replay and go over things as many times as you need, which is great!
I guarantee that any student pilot currently working towards their pilot certificate will enjoy watching and immersing themselves in GoFly Online as much as I have. I have found it to be invaluable in my flight training.’
‘GoFly provided me with very good resources, especially the online training, which I could watch at home and replay it back, watching it and watching it and watching it, until I understood.’
Judite, RPC student from Singapore
‘I don’t think I could have done it without the videos. They made it very easy to get the knowledge into my head. I was able to watch them over and over again, so that when I rocked up for my lesson I was well prepared. They were really good for learning the ‘patter’ and I think having access to GoFly Online has made me a much better pilot.’
Paul, Instructor candidate
‘The videos have certainly been a huge help. It’s been great to be able to view the lessons before flying them in the air and review them after you get back on the ground and they’ve been invaluable in being able to nail the board briefs. I highly recommend subscribing to the GoFly Online platform.’
David, Instructor Rating student
‘You can watch the GoFly videos when you are eating or taking a one hour break from other tasks. The most valuable thing is that I can watch them anywhere, any time.’
‘Comprehensive content, yet explained in a very simple manner. The videos have been filmed by experienced flight instructors and the content really has a global application so students anywhere in the world can accelerate their learning and become better pilots.’
World of Aviation magazine
‘I purchased Damien’s ‘Learn to Fly’ DVDs back in 2015. I revisited the GoFly website this month and discovered the wealth of online content there now; a brilliant offering. I have to say, communication with GoFly has been impeccable. Thanks for rectifying my access issue.’
Rob, New Zealand pilot
The videos are great and a fantastic resource to improve learning and competency.
Mark Heinrich, Aviation High
The video lessons are such a great resource for learning to fly. Almost as good as the real thing. I wish I had it at the start of my pilot training. Great tool for reviewing flying lessons and taking learning to fly a step further.’
I have decided to spend the year saving a lump so I can pay in bulk and do more frequent flying lessons, so I decided to get your videos to watch repeatedly in the meantime while saving. The videos are really helpful, definitely worth the money.
J P Wiatkowski
Initial impression: WOW! A full-on ‘gets my attention’ website.. simple and very effective.
Easy to navigate and packed with a lot of great information for the aspiring pilot.
The videos I found very useful, especially as I would love to commence the Instructor Course shortly and felt that these videos are great preparation before starting the course
The website has a huge amount of valuable, quality content which will significantly increase students’ skills. The videos are extremely informative and easy to follow. The layout is user-friendly and will be a breeze for students to keep up-to-date with lessons and videos throughout their training. GoFly Online is a great resource for students to access and will greatly benefit their training.
