Our fleet is comprised of 4 new advanced FADEC Powered Liberty XL2 aircraft, and our school is the ONLY school in Indonesia featuring new and advanced Full Authority Digital Engine Controlled partial-glass-cockpit training airplanes.
Our aircraft are designed to better simulate the airline aircraft environment, with less engine management and more emphasis on other critial flight control and management aspects of flight. With LIFT you will enjoy your flight training in a more comfortable, more advanced, and a better equipped aircraft!
In addition to our new fleet, we operate three of the most advanced flight training simulators in the World. These comprise of-
The RedBird FMX Full Motion Simulator, featuring completely interchangable analog-to-glasscockit (G1000) systems for flight training in a single- and multi-engine high performance aircraft.
The RedBird X-Wind Full Motion Simulator for training of pilots in the vital area of cross-wind takeoffs and landings. LIFT is the EXCLUSIVE provider of this unique and important training aid in Indonesia.
The RedBird TD2 Advanced interchageable classroom simulator, designed for initial training of all flight procedures for new student pilots.

Lombok Institute of Flight Technology wants you to not only have a great experience throughout your flight training with us, but to also score higher on airline intake courses and make a seamless transition from general aviation to more sophisticated airline avionics.
We are currently the ONLY flight school in Indonesia operating a brand-new and advanced fleet of flight training aircraft manufactured in the US by the "Liberty Aerospace / Discovery Aviation Corporation". Our aircraft are manufactured using the latest state-of-the-art composite materials with pushrod controls for better flight handling characteristics and glass-panel communication & navigation avionics.
These modern, spacious, fun to fly, technologically advanced and simply beautiful machines will get you to your dream of being an airline pilot faster and more efficiently, with greater safety and comfort!
Why is it so important to conduct your flight training in a modern aircraft?
The world of aviation is very competitive and modern airlines want their direct entry pilots to be familiar with the new technology which they will inevitably encounter in the cockpits of large passenger jets and turboprops. Therefore, only students with a solid experience in flying technologically advanced aircraft will have an edge on their competitors. We want you to be a better pilot. It's our main goal and we stand by it.
Please review some general characteristics of Liberty XL2 trainer:
