Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL)

This is the first pilot licence level and all the training required during the formative stages of developing the skills to operate an aircraft. Once achieving the RPL students are able to take non-paying passengers on flights within our local training area of Port Macquarie. The RPL candidate is required to hold either a full Class 2 medical or the Recreational Aviation Medical Practioners Certificate (RAMPC),restrictions apply.



Private Pilot Licence (PPL)

This is a continuation from the RPL and is principally a general skills consolidation and cross-country navigation training. Once you achieve your PPL you are given the additional privileges of flying non-paying passengers within Australian airspace during day VFR flight conditions.

The PPL candidate must hold a class 2 medical and a pass in the PPL theory exam.

Time required to obtain a PPL is 5 weeks full time (excluding theory) and is weather permitting.
