Soar Aviation sign up as a partner of Wings over Illawarra
Bright Events are thrilled to announce that trailblazing pilot academy, Soar Aviation has come on board as an industry partner of Wings over Illawarra 2019.
Founded in 2012 by the then 22-year-old entrepreneur Neel Khokhani, Soar Aviation is one of the fastest growing companies in Australia and has seen 600% growth over the past year. Neel lost his job as a flying instructor for suggesting some possible improvements to the business he worked for, so he set out to put his suggestions to the test and as a result, has created the largest flying school in Australia.
Soar’s exponential growth has been supported by a strategic partnership with the award-winning Box Hill Institute. Through this alliance, Soar is able to offer a part-time Diploma of Aviation course over two years, where theory lessons are held in the evening on weekdays and the practical aspect on weekends. This formula has been so successful that they now have over 500 students in training and a fleet of over 60 aircraft. In other words, it is a solution to make it more accessible for people to ‘get their wings’.
So come along to the Soar Aviation stand and check out their aircraft and talk to them about taking the first steps to a career in aviation as a pilot. They will have virtual technology available at Wings over Illawarra which will allow you to do a test flight - how cool is that!
