Frequently asked questions
Currently anyone at any age can start learning to fly. However in order to pilot the aircraft on your own, you must be 15 years old.
We follow the Part 61 Syllabus outlined by CASA and extend this with helpful videos & books. We recommend Bob Tait Theory or the Aviation Theory Centre for study material.
Your flight training duration is entirely up to you. Because the majority of the training is competency-based some students are able to complete the training faster than others. But what really matters is not how fast you do the training but how well trained you are.
Typical Course Outline
With the PPL course it all starts with obtaining your Recreational Pilot Licence first. This is done to split up the training modules and is designed to help those who are starting from scratch.
There are two flight exams:
- the RPL flight exam
