If you’ve come to this page, you’re likely thinking about training at the Australian Defence Force Academy. So, wouldn’t it be amazing to learn from those people who have graduated before you?

All authors at Get Your Wings have more than 25 years individual experience in various arms of the military collectively consisting of significant operational squadron exposure to tactical transport, fast jet and rotary wing aircraft as well as extensive exposure to both basic and advanced Military aviation training both in the air and on the ground.

Each author gained more than 8000 military flying hours including at least 3000 airborne instructional hours on fixed and/or rotary wing military aircraft including postings to the RAAF Roulettes Formation Aerobatic Team.

Between us, we have held supervisory and staff command positions as Ground Instructors at the Australian Defence Force Academy and Service Specific Officer Training facilities. Between us, we have instructed on CT4, CAP 10, Pilatus PC9, PC-21, BAE Systems Hawk and FA-18 Hornet aircraft. We have held executive positions at Basic Flying Training School (BFTS), Advanced Flying Training School (AFTS), Central Flying School (CFS) (where the ADF instruct the instructors) and Introductory Lead in Fighter Training where Hawk Lead in fighter training is accomplished.

We know the frustrations and uncertainty that can come with getting information before approaching recruiting. We’ve been there. We were once in the exact position you are now. That’s why extensive research has gone into providing all the information that you will need to enhance your prospects of becoming a Military pilot by instructors who have previously provided that training. All that you will need is contained within our site. Good luck!
