Tom Kenyon .... First Solo in the SportStar
"I am flying because I ALWAYS wanted to .... I loved planes, I wanted to join the Air Force and never did!
I went into Politics and now spend my time commercialising research and innovation, we take research and turn it into companies.
I travel a fair bit and would love to fly there.
Going solo? I was actually pretty calm about it, I flew as I always did, but I was in the plane by myself! I can't wait to do it again!!" ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations Tom Kenton - see you over on KI soon???🛩
How much wealthy do we need to have to learn to fly your prototype
My sister used to go to school with Martyn in England - this time 2 years ago we were in Adelaide and Martyn took us up for a flight - it was amazing - a trip I will never forget - thank you Martyn ☺️
You had a very good teacher. Good luck. I known Martyn from his microlight flying days back in the 80s in Sussex uk, he was so very keen to move on, he was unstoppable.
His friend Les.
Congratulations Tom ! It’s only a little bit addictive!! 😉
Francis Ben .... First Solo in the SportStar
"This has been a childhood dream! I come from a family of aviators, 2 of my brothers are Pilots, Military and Commercial. I trained as a Civil Engineer and now lecture at The University of Adelaide and Tabor College.
I came to Adelaide 16 years ago as a PHD Scholar and it was at that time I joined The Adelaide Gliding Club, but work and life took over and I didn't fly again until I started flying at Adelaide Biplanes.
My First Solo? It was nerve wracking .... It felt like I was dreaming! Landing, my legs were so wobbly ... I still cannot believe it !!" ... See MoreSee Less
Kingsley Storer .... New Private Pilot Licence
"I studied anaesthesiology at Cornell in New York and then we came back to Australia in 2018 to be closer to family. I started learning to fly because I love being up in the sky and I also wanted to be able to fly to places that are hard to get to!
For now, I want to get comfortable flying on my own and then take family on scenic flights around the area" ... See MoreSee Less

Stephen Howlett .... First Solo in the SportStar
"I used to fly gliders when I was 17/18 years old at the Harare Gliding Club, Zimbabwe. Then I didn't do anything until this year!
We migrated here to Adelaide in 2001, looking for a better future for my family.
I decided that as I was turning 50 this year, I was going to stop making excuses and pursue my passion!
Going solo .... I's a great feeling to have that level of trust from an Instructor .... It's awesome!
I'll aim towards my RPL and we'll see where to from there!" ... See MoreSee Less
Is it a glider ?
Russ Bianco and Gabby Gabbana .... New Recreational Pilot Certificates
Russ .... "I always intended to learn to fly, then because of COVID, we weren't going to be able to travel, so now was the time!!"
Gabby .... "For me, it was another adventure, but now it has become a challenge! I'm loving it!!
We want to do lots of local trips, here to Pt Lincoln, then around Australia. For now, we continue towards our Recreational Pilot Licence!" ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations to you both, we will miss seeing your faces every day
Thanks Adelaide Biplanes,
We have really enjoyed the last 8 weeks with all of you.
Looking forward to coming back for our PPL.
Good job guys 😍
Well done guys 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Maddy Hall .... First Solo in the Sport Cub
"I thought I'd begin to learn, probably from the safety perspective as I fly with Stuart.
It was probably after the first lesson with Jack that it changed ....I came away excited about flying and I wanted to do it for myself!
Going solo, I had a few nerves, it feels completely different, I had a lot more adrenalin, you know you can do it .... and then a sense of relief!
Next, more flying and getting out of the circuit. I am aiming to be able to fly Stu's aeroplane!! " ... See MoreSee Less
