Sports Aviation Flight College Australia (SAA) is a soon to be Recreational Flight School located at the Frog's Hollow air field in the Bega Valley. The college will be offering all-inclusive flight training packages to Chinese students, with a strong focus on experiencing the Australian culture and the beauty of its natural environment.
The flight college will be headed up by young local recreational flight enthusiast, Mitchell Boyle. Mitchell has been flying since he was just 15 years of age and at 16 years of age, he was the youngest pilot to solo circumnavigate mainland Australia (in which he still holds the record). Mitchell is a passionate recreational flyer, an active member of the local community and is the leading drive behind the College.
In addition to bringing in export dollars to the local community, the Flight College will require over 200 employees once fully operational. Committed to the local community, SAA will be offering scholarships for both recreational aviation training as well as aircraft maintenance positions.
