Temora Aero Club
Your flying days will be spent here at Temora Flying Club . The guys are very friendly. The toilet really isn’t very disabled friendly but if you need a proper disabled toilet there is one at the museum which you can use.

Flying manuals
Pre Study for Wheelies with Wings course.

There is no need to get too carried away but anticipation is everything!
Also in aviation you can never be too prepared.
In the past WwW has provided a BAK “Basic Aeronautical knowledge” book to our students which they can keep for the cost price.



So either I can order this book and send it to you or you can source it yourself from any book shop or flying school or from the source!  http://www.bobtait.com.au/

 
If you have internet access there is however a HUGE amount of this sort of information on the web.

Australia
For  a good guide of the basics. BAK. Go http://www.raa.asn.au/groundschool/contents.html
The RAA page has all sorts of basic info.
Go to the civil aviation safety authority site. CASA has heaps of info on there. http://www.casa.gov.au

Casa has an instructors manual that is excellent. http://www.casa.gov.au/scripts/nc.dll?WCMS:STANDARD::pc=PC_90306

Flying schools will supply a photocopy of Pilots Owners Handbook . there is a dodgy one here http://peter.vojnisek.com/uploads/9/5/0/7/95075/piper_pa-28-140_-_owners_manual.pdf

Temora is a very friendly town and the locals will make you most welcome.
