 Step 1: Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC)

Students will receive:

  • access to their own flight record in our Flight Schedule Pro booking system
  • free briefings, free exams and exam markings
  • a PREMIUM subscription to GoFly Online, containing all ab initio flying lesson videos, theory books, practice exams (plus nav and passenger and lots more)

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.

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 can be provided upon request. We will then prepare a 3 week schedule of training for you and begin to prepare for 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 the Brisbane Airport (until such time as international flights return to the Sunshine Coast Airport from late 2022). 
Students can 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 $270. Training will usually consist of 2 x two lessons per day for up to six days per week. Each lesson is made up of one hour of flying and one hour of on the ground (preflight and fuel the plane before flying then debrief and write notes, and pay after flying). Lessons can be taken either in the morning or in the afternoon on any day of the week. 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 (or you can deposit a bulk amount into our account).
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.
