Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC)

If you are looking to fly for fun, take up a new hobby or want a direct pathway for a career in aviation, then the Recreational Pilot Certificate is for you! You will fly a light sport aircraft (LSA) that is strong, highly manoeuvrable and cost efficient for you as a student pilot! Our aircraft are brand new and have state of the art with glass cockpits with integrated autopilot, putting them on a level above the rest! New regulation in Part 61 is now active, allowing your RPC to now be a direct conversion to a Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), which will allow you to fly a larger aircraft with more passengers!

Learning Outcomes:

On successful completion of your Recreational Pilot Certificate, you will be able to fly as pilot in command with one passenger an RA Aus Registered Aircraft within 25 nautical miles of your departure aerodrome
