Welcome to the Air Fafifi School of Aviation

We offer two online Courses in Virtual Flight:

While it is recommended that you start at the beginning, feel free to explore, jump in and have fun learning.

Good aims, happy flying

As the names suggest, the main aim for both of the Aviation for Serious Funsters courses is - to make learning fun.

A lot of joy can be got from flying around the virtual world, but the more knowledge and skills that you have - the more fun you can have. Flying a plane can be a bit daunting but we have worked out a way to get flying quickly and build up lots of knowledge and increasing technical skills a little bit at a time so you won't get information overload.

Learning can be a game. Be good learning design ...

Who are the Courses for?

The first Course: General Aviation for Serious Funsters assumes no previous skills or technical knowledge of either aviation or simulator use – only a passion for virtual aviation (flight simulation). In fact, we have designed it for someone who is thinking about getting into flight simulation and has no idea where to begin.

Flight simulation can be an expensive hobby, but you can get started on a budget. We will look at how to set up a simple but low-cost hardware system that will give the most bang for buck and provide a highly immersive virtual piloting experience.

Both Courses may also be helpful if you have already starting virtual flying - and want to consolidate and improve both your knowledge and skill base.
