To all ACFT students and customers:

Most of you will be aware that ACFT was closed temporarily on November 24th as a result of an ongoing legal dispute that has resulted in the failure a substantial training contract. On legal advice we cannot comment on the dispute at this time, other than to restate our sincere apologies to those students affected, and we can confirm that we are no longer able to provide any flight training to those students.

We confirm that for the immediate future flight training operations at ACFT will continue to be suspended, and we are unlikely to be able to offer services for the remainder of 2014 and until further notice. The organisation is undergoing a restructure and we hope to be making an announcement in the coming weeks as to the longer term future of ACFT.

To Our Retail Students:
Since November 24th we have been working towards a solution for you to be able to continue your flight training. We understand that most students would prefer to remain with their instructors, and you may have already discussed with your instructor how you would prefer to continue your flight training. As a result of a kind offer from Thunderbird Aero Service, several of our instructors including Trent, Christian and Duane have accepted the invitation to conduct flight training for retail students through Thunderbird to provide an ongoing service to ACFT’s retail students. For those of you who were training on the DA-20, DA-40 or Seminole, there will be no change. For those training on a different aircraft type, please coordinate with your instructor regarding your preferred aircraft type, and we will do our best to see that your needs are met.

For those that would like continue their flight training under this arrangement, please feel free to contact either your flight instructor, contact us at, or contact Thunderbird directly on 9417 7377 or email ACFT will ensure the timely transfer of all student records to allow your training to continue without further delay.

We wish you all the best for your flight training, and for a Merry Christmas and Happy and prosperous 2015.

Fly Safe,
Mark Thoresen
Managing Director
