Blue Sky Airways’ training fleet includes single and multi engine piston aircraft, as well as multiple turbine types.
Cessna Grand Caravan
For the last 30 years, the Cessna Grand Caravan has been recognised as the luxury sports utility vehicle of the air. Proven to be one of the most versatile, reliable and economic aircraft Cessna have ever built it comes as no suprise that the Caravan is one of the most widely used turbo-prop aircraft in the world.
We provide initial and recurrent training on the Cessna Caravan series, and are also approved by CASA to conduct Training and Checking on type for other operators.
Daher TBM 850
The Socata (Daher Aerospace) TBM700/850 series is a single-engine turboprop designed for executive use. Capable of cruising at over 300 knots and up in the flight levels, way above the weather.
We have a CASA approved syllabus for the TBM850 initial training and flight review on type required under CASR 61.747.
Piper Twin Comanche
Our Piper Twin Comanche is a PA30C model, with counter rotating propellers to eliminate having a ‘critical engine’ (something you will learn about during your multi-engine training).
We use the Twin Comanche for the multi-engine class rating, as well as instrument rating training.
The PA30 carries over five hours of fuel, making it ideal to private hire for flyaways.
Piper Super Cub
With extremely docile handling characteristics and slow speed, the Piper Super Cub is ideal for gaining the tailwheel endorsement, and is the first step on the path to flying our bigger tailwheel bush planes.
Our Super Cub is the 150hp model, with flaps and starter motor. Providing good “off airport” performance to experience airstrips you can’t in other types.
The king of bush-planes, the de Havilland Beaver is used in remote parts of the world to deliver supplies where ground transportation infrastructure is inadequate or does not exist, along with the conduct of emergency service operations and, as a luxury toy.
Our Beaver is currently configured on wheeled undercarriage and is available for scenic flights, advanced tailwheel, bush strip and type familarisation training.
dehavilland Tiger Moth
Experience flying a classic open cockpit biplane and see how aviation was in the 1930’s and 40’s. We are able to provide training in a genuine 1940, ex-RAAF DH82 Tiger Moth.
You’ll be taken through a thorough pre-flight briefing on the type to give an insight into the eccentricities of the Tiger Moth and the operation of vintage aircraft before donning flying helmet and goggles to experience a true classic.
