Recreational Pilot License
Just want to fly?
Begin your flying journey
This course will give you what you need to fly an aeroplane for pleasure. A Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) will allow you to operate an aeroplane to and from the same aerodrome and allow you to fly within the training area of that aerodrome.
How we do it
The flying will take a minimum of 25 hours to achieve an RPL. This can simply be booked ad-hoc at your own pace and as per your availability. We recommend booking at least fortnightly so you can maintain your skills and progress efficiently. All training is done on CASA registered aircraft. At the end of your training you will have:
Recreational Pilot Licence
RPL Radio Endorsement
RPL Controlled Aerodrome Endorsement (Bankstown and Moorabbin base only)

Competency Based Training
