Pipistrel Alpha Trainer | Flying Lesson #1 – Introduction to Type | Checkout Flight | ATC

Today, I get to fly the awesome Pipistrel alpha trainer that my flight school has recently acquired to use as its primary trainer. This flight will be the first of a few where I get introduced to the flying characteristics and handling of the alpha. If it flies as good as it looks, I’m in for a real treat! Lets jump into the cockpit and check her out…

I’m a student pilot learning to fly in my spare time. With full audio and complete lessons, come fly and learn with me, on the amazing journey to become a pilot and beyond.

Check out my various video series which documents my journey to become a pilot:

I originally received 30 hours of flying instruction 17 years ago and now I’m back in the cockpit and learning how to fly all over again.

Currently flying out of Wollongong (YWOL), Australia in light sport aircraft such as the Jabiru and Pipistrel alpha with Fly Illawarra. Also, flying out of Camden Class D (YSCN), Australia in the aerobatic Citabria with Curtis aviation.
