    Hi, i’ve got a few questions :-
    1) I’m 41 and are keen to learn how to fly. Although at the moment it is more on recreational basis but i am also serious in thinking of changing my career as a banker now to maybe a licensed pilot in near future. what does it take to be a pilot, i mean the duration of the full training? is there any age limit? the cost involved? other consideration that you may enlighten me?

    thank you for taking your time in answering my questions. Would really appreciate if you can get someone to call me at my mobile : 019-2769090. Thanks again. good day!

    Hi there,

    Captain Andreas,

    Firstly, i would like to congratulate you and your club for having such an informative website. From time to time, i noticed several reports in the papers regarding your club.

    I’m 32 and have a strong passion for aviation, particularly to become a pilot. As now, i’m a government officer.

    However, i would like to fly for recreation, possibly on the Cessna 150.

    In your website, you mentioned that for a PPL on the Cessna 150, it costs around RM 30K ++. In your experience, for a part timer, what’s the average costing like and how long will it take to complete the course and at what pace (once a week etc)? I hope that for a part timer it won’t cost more than RM 40K (worst case scenario) on a Cessna 150.

    After obtaining the PPL, i was wondering to upgrade to an IFR rating or possibly to clock some hours and take the AFI course to become an assistant instructor? Is it possible to do it at your club and what’s the average costing like?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Best regards,

    Izwan

      Thank you for your kind words. Indeed we are blessed with good media coverage. As a matter of fact more coverage is on the way, in June we will be on TV2 with a 1/2 hour program on how to fulfill the lifelong dream of of a young girl becoming a pilot.

      The Cessa 150 in an excellent starter aircraft in becoming a pilot. The mentioned price of 33500 should be sufficient for the entire course, provided we stick to the minimum of 46 hours training. 46 hours are sufficient if each hour is approached with dedication and passion.

      IFR rating and flight instructor training will be after some time. Best we focus on becoming a private pilot first in our Cessna 150.

      Perhaps we can discuss a time table over a cup of coffee and get you started in becoming a private pilot. My phone number is 0137232345. Should I not answer your phone, that is because I will be flying and fulfilling somebodys dream at that moment.

      Looking forward to hear from you soon.

    Dear Captain Andreas,

    can Singaporeans join/ start this pilot course or do I have to go through some interview.
    In order to kick start this Private pilot course.

    Many thanks

    Hi Jeric, let me help answer that question as Capt. Andreas might be away busy for a bit. To answer your question, Singaporeans can of course join in and do a PPL course with the Air Adventure Flying Club. There are many foreigners who have come to Malaysia primarily the AAFC to do their PPL courses here. I did my PPL years ago with Andreas and now I fly for the airlines. Join AAFC, you won’t regret it!

    Hi Andreas,

    Do I need perfect eye sight to be a PPL pilot? How long will your PPL course last if I can only fly during weekends (Saturday and Sunday). I am a Singaporean but I work in Malaysia, I hope to get my PPL and be good to fly at any country that I will be working in. I am contactable at 019 676 8888.

    • Andreas Posted on: June 20, 2012 Reply

      Hi Soo Siew Ming,
      There are a lot of pilots that do not have the perfect eyesight, myself I also wear glasses for the last 15 years.
      We have a number of Singaporeans with us learning and preparing for their PPL test.
      A large number of our students are weekend flyers, not a problem, we have 4 training aircrafts and 6 instructors to cater for that.
      Why not we meet up and discuss the training program, time frame and total cost. I or one of the instructors will call you in the morning. Look forward to see you get your wings.

    Hi Andreas and Miraz

    Thank you for meeting me on Saturday, I am happy with the meeting and had decided to take up this PPL course with you guys.
    I am preparing my medical and within the week I will return with my SPL to start the course.

    Thank you so much…

      Goos afternoon Soo Siew Ming,

      Wie are so happy to read that you have made the decision to continue your PPL license with us. Don’t let a bad experience with another club stop you fulfilling your dreams. Good luck with your medical and look forward to see you get airborne soon.

    Hi Andreas/JFK,
    I have been watching your videos and seen your website and am impressed with what your team is doing and training. I have been looking around to search for a good flight school to get my PPL. I am a Singaporean and one of my key concerns is traveling to Malaysia every week for lessons. Can you please recommend the best way I can still do this as Singapore can only issue restricted PPL due to limited air space.

    I look forward to hearing from you and the details what I can do. I don’t mind doing weekday lessons. What’s the best way to optimise my time when I go to your side? Awesome!

    • Andreas Posted on: August 28, 2012 Reply

      Hi Lawrence,

      Thank you for your kind words. Making your PPL in Malaysia makes so much more sense. Obtaining a restricted license is of no much use you literally will be flying in circles.
      We are having a number of Singaporean in our club and flight training can be done over the weekend, combining it with an additional day. You will be able to clock up at least 5 to 6 hours. as soon as you are done with the circuit training we will venture out and do cross country training and we also will flying to Singapore.
      For the ground classes, we have very convenient for you flight instructors that are based in Singapore and they will be happy to train you on a one to one basis at any place of your convenience. Once you are ready all you need to do is to sit for the exams at Putrajaya DCa office.
      Hope all this will encourage you to get started and we all look forward to fly with you soon.

        Hi Andreas,
        Thanks so much for shedding some light to my flying interest. May I know how the procedure is like if I go one on one for ground lessons in Singapore? Does it mean I sign up the flying package in Malaysia and are other Singaporeans doing this as well? So I do ground and flying lessons together or finish all ground lessons then fly?

        Can please email me more details on how I can get started? Looking forward to it. Does this also include instrument rating for PPL? Thanks.

        • Andreas Posted on: August 28, 2012 Reply

          I suggest is that you get started in what you feel most comfortable with. I like to get new students into the aircraft and do some 4-5 hours prior to getting them started on their books. This will make it so much easier to understand what this is all about… and besides it is more fun. Do as many ground lessons in Singapore as you can and fly when you get a chance.

          There is no rule in what is first or second. Most of all it is fun and an adventure for you to learn to fly.

          hope that helps.

    Awesome Andreas! Do I need to get medical from Malaysia or can do it in Singapore? If I plan to start training in the next one or two months time, what should I get ready first? How to get to Subang from KL since I will fly to KL. Any accommodation since if I fly over weekends and a weekday as suggested by you? What is the usual for Singapore students? Thanks.

    • Andreas Posted on: August 29, 2012 Reply

      Hi Lawrence,
      since you are in Singapore, i suggest you get the medical done there. (i send you the information seperate) Once that is done together with the medical we can apply for your student pilot license. All we need to do than is wait.
      Getting from KL to Subang is easy, lots of taxi available. If you prefer to stay a bit closer to Subang, perhaps close enough for the instructor to pick you up on the way to work… that would be the easiest. Buy him a nice breakfast and get your pre flight briefing done…. end of the day buy him a beer in the pub, and he will not only brief you on your flight for the day, he will bring you back to the hotel. Keep the beer flowing and he will share with you all the tricks of the trade.
      It is easy and we wanna keep it fun for all concerned as well.

    Hi Andreas, Capt Miraz & Capt Chow

    Ever since I decided to join AAFC in July and started flying and attending the ground school, I am glad I have made the right choice. Yesterday I received the results of my final ground school exam from DCA and I obtain a pass, in total of the 7 subjects I took from July to September I have passed every single one of it, these are the effort of your dedicated instructors that help me achieve this feat in such a short time. Thank you very much!!

      Hi Fadzli, it can go very quick, it can take forever. It all depends on you. you will be able to make the bookings for all your training flights on line and therefor determine how many times you fly and how long that PPL will take. From experience it will take you some 4 – 6 month, that is if you are working and on weekend flying.

      to be issued by the Department of Civil aviation with a Student license, you need to be 17 years old. you may start attending our ground classes when you are 16, but you need to wait just a little bit longer.

      To become a commercial pilot, you need to either enrol in an academy or with a club. after you get your student pilot license you proceed to your private pilot license. done that you will need to upgrade your license to a commercial pilot license. with that in hand you may start on your airline transportation pilot license. I suggest you call me and I can assist you in making the right moves. 0137232345

    Hi Andreas,

    I intend to come and join your club since the website thoroughly impresses me. By profession, I already am an aircraft engineer serving at Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, Pakistan. Becoming a commercial pilot has been a long-cherished dream of mine and the reason why I have chosen Malaysia for the purpose is on account of the ease it provides to foreigners. My sister is already there in KL doing her PhD. May I have a rough idea about the payment schedule?

    I intend flying to KL in the first week of August. Can I meet you in person for better guidance please?

In regard to payment, we require you to pay for membership and ground classes as well as for 10 hours flying deposit, a total of RM 15k. The rest of the payment will be as and when you intend to fly.

    Dear Captain,

    I would like to know if a student already complete the PPL license, I believe he/she can only fly a single engine aircraft under DCA guideline. My question is, can we upgrade from PPL to CPL-ATPL/IR later on from your training facilities or we need to continue it at MFA, APFT or HM AEROSPACE? Are they still concern about our academics subjects? Do we get any supporting from your end or DCA to enroll to their courses to complete the license until we get the frozen ATPL/IR. Other case if there is any other opening for cadets programme let say MALAYSIA AIRLINES, do we earn some advantage from taking this PPL license to continue to ATPL?

    Many thanks,
    Azlan. KUALA LUMPUR.

    • Andreas J. Walther Posted on: February 3, 2014 Reply

      Hi Azlan,
      once you have completed your PPL you may fly any single engine aircraft that falls in the PPL category. The PPL you can either do at our club or at MFA or APFT or HM Aerospace. To do your ATPL you need to complete that at the flying academies mentioned earlier. There are only view cadets programme that offer support for doing your license, you need to check with the respective airlines for that.
      all the best
