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.

Commercial pilot licence (CPL): A commercial pilot licence (CPL) allows you to act as a pilot in command of an aircraft in various commercial operations.

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.

Private pilot licence (PPL): For this licence we use Cessna 172's and a Piper Warrior. Both aircraft types can be used for the PPL and NVFR. But let's go back a little. You have another examination to be passed which covers meteorology, navigation and flight rules and procedures.
