Why train with Phil Unicomb Aviation?

Phil Unicomb Aviation is based at Cessnock Airport, right in the heart of picturesque Hunter Valley wine country. We pride ourselves on professional instruction, robust safety practices, and a student-centric culture. We offer flight training from Recreational level, through to a Commercial level and beyond. For those who want to take their flying to the next level, we also specialise in sport flying, offering advanced training in Aerobatics, Formation Flight, and Tailwheel design feature endorsements, just to name a few.

"We are not just a flying school, we’re a family."

We set ourselves apart from other flying schools by providing a fun atmosphere in which to learn while building a community with our students, friends, and fellow aviators. PUA started from humble beginnings in 2019 and has now grown to host an expanding fleet of many aircraft. Among these are the Cessna 150, 172, and 182 training workhorses, a beautiful vintage Tigermoth biplane, twin engine Beechcraft Duchess commercial trainer, and aerobatic capable machines such as the American Champion Decathlon and Pitts Special aerobatic biplane.
