About Us

Gil Layt's Flying School Pty Ltd was established in 1975 by husband and wife team, Gil and Sue Layt.

Gil has been involved in aviation on Archerfield Aerodrome since 1968 when he obtained his Instructor Rating. The Company is a family owned and operated business.

We have been teaching people to fly since 1975 and many of our previous students are now pilots for Qantas (both domestic and international), Malaysian, Swiss Air, Cathay Pacific and more. We have taught people to fly from Japan, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Switzerland, New Zealand, Britain and Fiji, just to name a few.

So that's a little about us - where we have been and as for where we are going, we would like that to include you as our next student.

Why not come in for a visit and discuss your flying dreams with one of our friendly Flying Instructors.

Maybe you would like to try one of our special Trial Introductory Flights (TIF) and once you have done that, we are sure you will want to make learning to fly your next adventure.
