Every pilot is on a lifelong journey of expanding their knowledge and skills. Don’t get rusty – try some recurrency or upgrade training!

Always wanted to go further afield on your cross-country flights, but feel nervous about flying in the mountains?

Maybe you are currently overseas and want to convert your licence?

Perhaps your instrument proficiency has lapsed and you need to complete an IPC ride?

Montair has many different skill improvement, licence conversion and upgrade options available!

There are many ways to improve your skills and we can group them together to form a complete annual recurrency package including type training, recurrency, advanced cross-country flying, mountain flying, terminal airspace experience and flying in the USA. You can choose to take one, several or all of the course components – it’s up to you!
