 Step 1: Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC)

GoFly Aviation offers a Recreational Pilot Certificate package for $5,980 for students from Hong Kong and Singapore. 

Students will receive:

  • 20 hours of flying lessons over 2-3 weeks*
  • access to their own flight record in our booking system

 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 $4500 and a passenger endorsement for approximately $1,000. 

Step 3: Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) 

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 1500 kgs. 

Step 4: Commercial Pilot Licence

There is currently a global pilot shortage. GoFly offers students from Singapore and Hong Kong very competitive-priced flight training to CPL level, with theory provided in Singapore and flight training provided in Australia. GoFly accepts students training for CPL, 2-3 times each year.

Terms and conditions

Upon confirmation of enrolment in your RPC, GoFly Aviation will require a non-refundable 10% deposit to confirm your place. The 10% deposit ($598) will be paid by directly to GoFly Aviation. Bank details will be provided upon request. GoFly Singapore 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 Brisbane airport during 2019 and can also access Sunshine Coast Airport directly, from 2020.
GoFly Singapore can assist with arranging transfers to the student’s chosen accommodation for approx $30 (to or from Sunshine Coast airport) or $50 (to or from Brisbane airport).
Students will purchase a pilot log book ($35) from the GoFly Aviation office, and a BAK theory book online (approx $90) after their 3rd lesson. 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 attract a 15% discount off our normal rate of $299/hour.
