Perth flight training is generally conducted in Jandakot (YPJT), this is a class D aerodrome with a TAF and 3 runways. This aerodrome compared to others around Australia is not very busy and there are a couple of flying schools located around the apron. The best thing about flying around Jandakot and Western Australia is the weather is generally perfect for most of the year. With over 300 days of no rain a year. The opposite can be said when the heat and summer kick in during Nov- Apr, gets around 40 degrees during summer which can be a no-fly zone for some aircraft like the Diamond.
