Geelong Flying School Reveals Emergency Manoeuvre Training for Pilots
VICTORIA, Australia October 2013 – Student pilots learning to fly are usually both excited and nervous in equal measure. Taking the plunge and flying solo is a significant achievement and Geelong Flying School, Skythrills urges student pilots to make sure they’re well-prepared, well-trained and totally ready before taking the plunge. Skythrills firmly believes in the importance of teaching their students advanced flight training and aerobatics, as well as preparing them for all emergency situations. As one of only three flight schools in Australia that specialise in Emergency Manoeuvre Training for Pilots, Skythrills believe this level of advanced training is absolutely crucial in teaching new pilots how to avoid potential disasters.
Jeremy Miller, Chief Flying Instructor and Owner of Skythrills says, “I personally believe that every pilot should undertake some Emergency Manoeuvre Training during their basic training or at least at some stage after they have obtained their pilot’s license. It’s just damn foolish to have pilots in the air that don’t know how to cope with an emergency – without this knowledge and skill, they are a risk to people on the ground below them, as well as their passengers and themselves.”
Jeremy says, “Emergency Manoeuvre Training, available at our flying school in Geelong, is developed to target the Known-Unknown’s and the Unknown-Unknowns in a safe, controlled environment. During this course, we push our students to the limits of what they know, what they’ve been taught, and how they fly. We do this not to highlight areas of deficiency, but also to give them the tools to expand their own boundaries and improve their safety skills. Our students definitely find themselves challenged to push their own limits, facing situations that they’re apprehensive about, but above all they have fun while learning.” www.skythrills.com.au/
“The question I pose to a lot of pilots at our Geelong-based flight training school is: ‘What area of flight are you not comfortable with?’ Their responses are often the same: stalling, spinning, and unusual altitude recoveries. Being uncomfortable with these areas of flight is not suitable justification for not receiving training that could one day save their life. If they are not yet comfortable, then we say it’s all the more reason for them to make themselves more comfortable in a safe, controlled environment,” Jeremy says. www.skythrills.com.au/
Jeremy’s students are really pleased with their results at the Geelong flying school. Neville Bergin, PPL holder and owner of an Extra 300L, shares, “It has been my pleasure to have been instructed by Jeremy Miller of Skythrills, since 2007. During that period, he has guided me through the acquisition of new skills and assisted my transition into higher performance aerobatic aircraft ensuring that I was both competent and confident.
I particularly appreciate his teaching style which is always positive and encouraging no matter what errors I make. Whilst I am admonishing myself for performing badly, Jeremy will always treat it as a learning experience, never criticising but getting me to analyse what went wrong and to understand what I need to do differently next time. I can thoroughly recommend Jeremy and Skythrills to pilots of all levels, from students wanting to learn to fly, to those seeking to develop their aerobatic skills.” www.skythrills.com.au/
