About us

about us
Oliair have been associated with weight-shift
aircraft since 1974.

We have experience in General Aviation,
Hang-Gliding, Gliding, Ultralighting, Gyro
and of course Triking.

Chief Flying Instructor
John Oliver first started Hang-gliding while studying Mechanical Engineering in the mid-70’s.
In the early 90’s he started Trike flying and started instructing soon after. In the last 25 years he
has flown trikes in such diverse places as India, Alaska, Oshkosh, Czech Republic, Ukraine,
Hungary, the U.K., Italy and Turkey.

He has also completed his RAA 3 Axis rating, General Aviation
PPL licence and Commercial theory rating. Because he was a Secondary School teacher for
many years, he saw a need to train pilots correctly through safe and staged units of study.

The Ground and Air Course Workbooks are a result of this belief. He has many contacts in the
R.A.A.F and has been flying out of Pt Cook Airport for the last 20 years. This site is the oldest
continually operating airfield in the world and is situated only a few kilometers from Melbourne’s CBD.
