 Step 1: Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC)

A Recreational Pilot Certificate takes around 25-27 hours of flying lessons and solo time. Flight training costs $314/hr AUD. Hong Kong and Singapore students can achieve their RPC for between $8,500 depending on their competency. 

Students will receive:

  • 20-27 hours of flying lessons over 16-21 days*
  • access to their own flight record in our Flight Schedule Pro booking system
  • free briefings, free exams and exam markings
  • a Basic Subscription to GoFly Online, containing our 22 online ab initio flying lessons 
  • unlimited use of our Sling Simulator for practising procedures

Students can enrol in any month of the year.  Our Recreational Pilot Certificate syllabus can be found here. Please also read the fine print at the bottom of this page,

 Step 2: Cross country and passenger endorsements

At the completion of your RPC, you can then go on to do your cross country navigation endorsement for approximately $4,500 and a passenger endorsement for approximately $1,000. 

Step 3: Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) OR PPL

Once you have completed your RPC and endorsements, you can talk to your instructor about continuing on to do your RPL. If you wish to go further in your studies, you can obtain your full Recreational Pilot Licence. 

Every flight lesson will start with a classroom briefing on the techniques before they’re put into practice. You’ll need to pass several theory exams as well as complete practical flight training.

With a Recreational Pilot Licence, you’ll be able to fly as a Pilot in Command of a single engine aircraft up to 1,500 kgs.

Option 5: Instructor Rating

At the completion of your RPL and after obtaining the required number of hours of command time, if you are interested in obtaining your Instructor Rating, you can do so through GoFly, with the assistance of a Premium Subscription to our exclusive GoFly Online videos containing all the Instructor Rating briefings and patter.

Terms and conditions

To confirm your enrolment at GoFly Aviation we will require a non-refundable 10% deposit to confirm your place. The 10% deposit will be paid by directly to GoFly Aviation. Bank details will be provided upon request. We will then prepare a two or three week schedule of training and begin to prepare for the your arrival, including assisting with advice about travel and accommodation options. All travel and accommodation will be paid for by the student. Students will fly into Sunshine Coast Airport directly, from 2022. 
Students will purchase a pilot log book ($35) from the GoFly Aviation office. After the 3rd flying lesson it is also compulsory to join Recreational Aviation Australia (RAA), at a cost of $268.50. Training will usually consist of 2 x two lessons per day on week days. Each lesson is made up of one hour of theory and one hour of flying. Lessons will be held either in the morning or in the afternoon on weekdays. Once the student is training with GoFly, they can pay for their lessons at the end of each day’s training, by cash, debit or credit card.
For groups of 3-4 students studying simultaneously, the students will be invited to come to the offices of GoFly Aviation for an hour on the day before they begin training, to have morning or afternoon tea and to meet our Instructors and staff and have any questions answered.
All training at GoFly is based on competency of the pilot and not on hours of tuition. A student will only receive their certificate or licence if they have passed all tests and the Instructor deems their flying to be satisfactory. If the student does not achieve their certificate within 20 hours and requires further flight hours, those hours will be at the rate of $314/hour.
