RPL COnversion Difference

1. Why Get an RPL

An RPL is often the obvious choice when you either want to get a General Aviation licence or fly larger/heavier single-engine planes. Of course larger planes cost more to fly so learning to fly them can be cheaper by doing the bulk of your initial training in cheaper RA planes and then converting to RPL planes.

2. RPL Difference

A Recreational Pilot's Licence (RPL) is a CASA -issued licence very similar to the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) issued by RAA. The main difference is that you can fly larger/heavier aircraft with an RPL, and carry 1 extra passenger. There is the same restriction of a single-engine but you can fly aircraft that weigh up to 1500kg, plus if you have a Class 2 Medical Licence you can take 2 passengers.

3. Casa Requirements

As with most Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) licenses there are more stringent conditions including: 1. Have a current flight review for the aircraft being flown 2. Meet the medical requirements 3. Have conducted three take-offs and landings in the previous 90 days if you wish to carry passengers (All General Aviation training is conducted by Air QLD operated under AOC CASA.TAAOC.0734)

4. Easy Convenience

As GoFly Aviation offers RA, RPL and GA aircraft, we can train you from start to finish at the one school. Our RPL conversion course is designed for pilots with an RAA licence and gets them endorsed on the heavier Cessna 172 or even the 182.
